I thought the earlier Thunderbirds (89 era) were handsome cars, but when I drove them, in anticipation of buying, they were still just shimmying Fords. What a disappointment! Then the new Thunderbird, on first glance, looked pretty good, but the more I looked at it, the uglier it got...They nearly put enough lipstick on that pig to make it look pretty. I am just not a Ford person...not since my old 66 Mustang, at any rate, and it had a bit of the patented Ford Shimmy and Shake to it.
