2002 Ford Thunderbird Deluxe 2dr Convertible (3.9L 8cyl 5A)
A lot of people complain about the price being too high and cite the car as costing $50K. I say to those people that I've got some swamp land for them to buy. I purchased this car for around $20K and the original sticker was $27K. For $25 K the car is an excellent sports car. It's not a Porsche but is quite nimble and has ample power with the small v8 equipped. For the money, it's a bargain. The fit and finish are quite excellent for a Ford. The reliability is not bad for a sports car of which cars in that category usually require a bit more than just changing the oil and filling it up.
Tight finish, good quality interior, surprisingly roomy for a small car, I'm 6'2" and have plenty of room.
More aftermarket parts and maybe an optional turbo.
