2002 Ford Thunderbird Deluxe 2dr Convertible (3.9L 8cyl 5A)
Picked up the Thunderbird blue with
the partial blue interior. This car
definitely turns heads. People speed
up to get a glimpse on the highway.
You won't make any quick trips to the
market after purchase--everyone wants
to gawk and talk about it. It drives
like a dream too. Lots of power and 0-
60 in nothing flat. Don't buy it
though if you want a Porsche. Buy a
Porsche. This is a luxury car ride,
not a sportscar. Can't understand
complaints about fit and finish or
interior style--didn't those people
look at it before they bought it?
Bottom line is: Ford got it right both
inside and out.
Call me crazy, but I love the dash
mounted ignition and the automatic
steering column retraction (my
dad's '67 had a wheel that popped out
of the way when you opened the door.)
The hardtop storage system is great.
Auto-dimming rearview mirrors inside
and out. An auto-stick would be nice.
