We Like It !!
By Clarke George on
2004 Ford Thunderbird Premium 2dr Convertible w/Removable Hard Top (3.9L 8cyl 5A)
With 1,233 miles on it, we left for a
3700 + mile trip from Whidbey Island,
WA through OR, NV, AZ,CA and return.
Ave. 24+ mpg. Turned heads everywhere.
Beamer & Lexus drivers give it a 2nd
look. Lots of comments. Fun to drive -
good acceleration, stiff suspension &
tight steering. Corners flat and hugs
the road. Quiet inside w/very little
road noise. Came over Donner Pass,
westbound on I 80 in a snowstorm, early
NOV 04. Sipped tires by Les Schwab -
never slipped or broke loose. We pack
the trunk like a suitcase - use small
overnight bags in & out of the motels.
We like it more every time we drive
Style & Metallic Ice Blue color, and
Handling. White faces on gauges.
Adjustable Lumbar supports in the seats.
Power Hard top vs a retractable soft
top. If the Chevy SSR can do it, Ford
outta be able to do it.
