I could go into details but heres the basics: The car's a 1979 Ford Thunderbird, we got it for an unbeleivable price from a local who restores old cars in a huge garage/warehouse, it has low miles, in near perfect condition, everything works (barring the clock.) and it's only been painted over once. Being the smaller engined version, it gets abit better mileage than your average land barge, and he's planning on only using it for occasional drives and drives to work. (which is very close.)
(Btw, the silhouetted figures inside are my step-dad and grampa.)
Lucky, I love classic cars, and thats 1 of millions of cars. when I do drive, i plan to buy cars betwwen the years of 1898-1979. Hope your dad take care of this beauty, because soon, it could grow in value.
We are believe me. Yeah, 70's cars tend to be dirt cheap because most people don't look on the era(and the cars in particular.) too favorably, but before long everybody's gonna want em due to sheer oldness ironically.
"Officially" 13mpg city and 19 mpg highway, though we just filled it up recently so we can test it. ^^'
Regardless, a trolly route's being built acouple blocks over and is going to stop right next to his work.(it should be finished by next year.) And with that he won't even need to have to drive it everyday.
