1988 ford thunderbird
My father's hotrods are 60s muscle cars, but I look at it as this was when he was in school. Well in 1988 I was 12 and this was a hot car on the Nascar track being a fan of course. And lets not forget 2 more things yesteryears cars were way over budget and how many more Mustang do you want to look at. This is my 4th bird I had an 87sport, 92sport, 88turbo, and this being my final one a sport coupe w/ a turbo coupe nose on it the plastic surgery has just begun. The car drives great and I am in no rush to get it done speaking of its 2012 and most those pics are 5-8 years ago. By the time my son can drive the car will be 35 years old that's equivalent to me driving to H.S in a 55 Chevy. But there's no way he will be driving it at that age at least w/out me. The car has many other mods done to it. There is plenty of 83-88 Cougar and Thunderbird enthusiast at foxtbirdcougarforums.com
