"Before I die I wanted to own a convertible and when this TBird came out in 2002 I wanted one so bad. The baby blue with white top was my favorite...but instead I got the canary yellow....love it. Never have regreted buying it and I take very good care of it and it stays in the garage all winter long...has never been driven in the snow...no..no...Its feel like a dream, but its real...."

"I purchased a 2005 50th Anniversay Tbird convertable with a removeable hardtop. The car came from Florida with 13000 miles. It has the K&N air filter and Borla less restrictive exhaust system. The car is fantastic and one that will not be a "garage queen"! Handles very well on the back roads as well as the interstate. Room in the trunk for some real traveling bags but yet maintains that Tbird sports roadster look. You cant go wrong with the 2005 T Bird --- last year of production by Ford and truly a classic that will gain value whether you drive it or store it. I am totally satisfied with this "torch red" convertible and will keep it for many years to come. At age 70 I decided life is too short not to enjoy it more!"

"I would like to know what the value of my T-Bird is worth, 2003, 19986 original miles. Excellent condition inside and out. All glass is great. It is a hard top with a rag top in the boot. But I can't find a value on it. Could someone help me with it. I won't be selling it, just wanted to know its value. Thaks Ron,,,,, Colorado"

"The very first time I saw one of these cars, it was parked on the outdoor patio/showroom steps of a major Ford dealership here in Sacramento. It was sitting at a jaunty angle, beckoning, and I was smitten! I remember asking my husband "what was THAT?!" (He was driving, I was passenger so we had to make "U" to take a closer look. Well, we learned what it was and then I needed to drive it to see if it handled like it looked. (I remember years ago being in love with Jaguar sedans until I drove a few.... gorgeous cars but built for autobahns and cruising more than the around town trips with peppy, responsive handling that won me over completely with this wonderful little Thunderbird. I'm still in love with this 11 year old treasure and still get stopped and asked about it and chatted with by admiring strangers. I'm 67 years old and don't see any changes in my lifetime.... unless someone gives me a 1957 Porsche Speedster! But I'm flexible and I've got room in my driveway for more than one vehicle!"
