216,000 miles and still doing great
By Love my 96 Bird on
1996 Ford Thunderbird LX 2dr Coupe
Wow - what an awesome car. I picked it up as a used fleet car with 12,000 miles on it for $16k in 1996 - as of June of 2010 still has a lot of life left. Just this week needed to finally replace the catalytic converter - mechanic said with this car, it's worth it. He's so impressed - he checked her out from stem to stern and thinks she'll get at least another 50,000. This beauty doesn't owe me a dime - $500 to do the cat, so what, how much am I saving in car payments and insurance? Yeah, it's fabulous. Love this car.
Rides great, handles well, built with luxury sound and feel, seats 5, huge trunk, hugs the road
Cup holder is lame - it's not well placed and difficult to use. After only 175,000 miles, the power antenna gave out - Gosh.
