2005 Ford Thunderbird Deluxe 2dr Convertible (3.9L 8cyl 5A)
The car is fun to drive anywhere, whether it be in town or out in the country. People on the street or in cars next to it are always giving it a thumbs up and it fits in, in any circle. The trim inside and out might be a little subdued for some, but that is what the retro look is all about isn't it? A couple of my friends have BMW Z3 and a 3 series convertible and they are nice too, but they weren't made to bring back that nostalgic feeling of old.
The cabin is very comfortable for two, the top is a breeze to raise and lower and the car handles the freeways and surface streets smoothly. It is just a good driving experience,
A stiffer suspension would be nice as would more power off the line. A convertible hardtop like the Benz or Lexus would have made up for the previously mentioned shortcomings though. A smooth leather finish would have being more appealing than the pebble grain too.
