Rod I have a funny story about the Thunderbird. Not a '62, but a '63 looked just like this one only a coupe not a convertible. Same colors burgundy with a cream top.

Car shopping at the used car dept at the local Ford dealers. Fell in love with the thing, but wasn't sure about the price. Salesman said - take it home, keep it over night. So we did. Wife worked at a computing center in Jacksonville near the Ford dealer and I was stationed at the Naval Air Station. Next morning she took the Thunderbird and the kids as she always did to the child care center on the base.

Not thinking that the car did not have a base sticker on the windshield she drove right through the main gate with the Marine guards waving her through. This was at the height of the Cuban Missile crisis when everything in Florida was pretty much locked down. My wife was gorgeous as was the car, we figured that the guards were either distracted by her or the Thunderbird or both.

Later that day I met her at the Ford dealer. We didn't get the car, but laughed about it for a long time after.

I would prefer a car that you can have fun driving I like sporty driving the beautiful and  expensive ones don't really interest me on the picturs one of m'y race cars I so regret having sold it this little car had 400 hp under the hood Only weighed 800 kg Able to accelerate faster than a corvette Just to take this model as an example as most cars not modified regardless of the model was left behind Cars, cars, and more cars - Page 8 Scree147

I'm more than twice your age David, one day a nice comfortable highway cruiser will look awful good to you too. Say when your about 90 with aching knees and back.

I have had my share of hot cars, Corvettes, BMW's, a 454 Buick Riveria, etc., presently own a 350Z that has plenty of get up and go.

Of course I prefer sports cars but I also know how to appreciate the comfort of a more sophisticated car My everyday car is old but I use it every day my good old crysler 300 has now 385000km Cars, cars, and more cars - Page 8 Img_2327
Fully equipped 5-disc cd player Very comfortable heated seat wit dual climate air conditioner system 4x4 automatique and manuel chift transmission before this one I was runing wit a 2005 black BMW 330xi To expensive .. I like the 350z great sounds good driving very responsive But the interior center console a little high I felt a little cramped in the driver's seat similar to an Afiniti g35 stil super fun To drive cheers
