As the TV show The Wonder Years grew up with its audience, so did the Thunderbird. The trim, stylish dude with a pack of cigs in his sleeve who bought a '55 could stroll right back in to the Ford showroom sixteen years later in a bowling shirt covered in mustard and still find his dream T-bird waiting for him. Find this 1971 Ford Thunderbird here for sale in Ft. Meyers, FL for $5,000 via craigslist.
Tip from dascpcu
The interior in the fifth generation cars was a comfortable place to sit in your driveway with a scotch and a chili dog, stare at your newly awarded bowling trophy, and wonder what exactly happened over the past decade and a half that lead to staring into a steering wheel and dash full of simulated wood. Luckily, that place is still in great shape and a wonderful place to ruminate about what a great deal you just got.
