"I bought this car the first day you were aloud to buy it. The price was unknown and the options were in s hand written list. This was the first one in town. I got the car 7 months later. I will keep this car till I die and pass it to my kids. I drive it a couple days a month."

"I bought a black hardtop/convertible in 2013 and replaced the stereo with a JVC system with integrated phone, Sirius, and bluetooth. also installed a hidden radar detection system from Whistler. Then I added some chrome trim and custom 22" black wheels and Nitto low profile tires. Added "ghost" flames in a pale silver-blue and painted the calipers to match the Thunderbird insignia on the front of the car. Under the hood I installed a cold air intake, nice "growly" exhaust, and an FS3 chip from VOLO to lean out the fuel (they came rich from the factory)and increase mileage. It didn't hurt that it topped 300hp either!"

"Not a true sports car but looks like one and turns heads. More than adequate acceleration but has a too much of a boulevard ride with the Lincoln chassis. More horsepower and stiffer suspension would make this a contender for the XLR as I used to have a 93 Allante' Northstar that would've walked all over this T-Bird. None-the-less, a great car for being "current.""

"Thought we wanted a Mustang but it was too stiff a ride. Then tried the Thunderbird and it was perfect. Performance is fantastic. Came with hard top as well as soft top. Haven't had the hard top on since we came home from dealer in 2003. Now have 16000 miles on it and have had it for 11 years. Obviously we don't drive it much as we are saving it for classic car."

"When I first saw this Thunderbird sitting out front of the Ford dealership, my first thought was, "Wow, what a BEAUTY!" I use her primarily for the weekends and extended trips. After nine years since new, she never given me any problems what so ever. Mainly due to the fact that I keep her clean, never ever let maintenance go overdue on her and always keep her in the garage when not in use. This Thunderbird is very, very comfortable for me to drive. I can drive it all day and night without getting the least bit tired. I'm 60 years old now and I expect BEAUTY to be in my possession for at least another 20 years. Then she'll go to my daughter who is impatiently tapping her foot now."
