Pros: "fun to drive."

Cons: "tight for large folks"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"This very snappy car is fun to drive, has a very distinct look, and gets a lot of head turners scoping it out. Yes, it is tight for big folks, but it is a true sports car with only a front seat and it drives nicely. Not sure I would want this as my main car, but a great weekend vehicle and perfect for cruising the streets!"

Showing off in the parade. Chosen to be the lead car

"This car has only had one owner and has never been in an accident and has never seen snow. There were only 1000 of these beauties made. it is a limited edition ID badge numbered and in the glove box. It is Monterey mist green exterior with light/dark ash accent interior. it has actual low mileage. You can ride depending on the mood. Beautiful hard top which is ash metallic removable, or convertible soft top or convertible no top. Make you choice."

Pros: "Perfect little sports car and feels solid."

Cons: "My 100 pound lab does fit in it."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Fun to drive, great pick up and reliable. Looks as great as any new car on the road if not better. It feels solid on the road and love the feeling of hugging the road. Easy to see out of the windows to whats going on around you. The sound system is fabulous. I couldn't be happier with another car. Just wish they still made them! Love, love this car. I lovely car it Thunder! If you can find on, buy it in a heart beat."

Cons: "None that I can think of."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I had a Corvette that was a lot of fun and was very fast but I would see many of them on the road all summer long. I did not see many T-Birds and although it is not as fast as the Vette, It is respectable. Very easy and quick to get the top up if you get caught in the rain and it is very comfortable."
