    To my knowledge, the Thunderbird IS and has ALWAYS been Rear wheel drive.

    (And the back window is modified from a 911. good eye.)

    I dunno, this is a cool interpretation of the 90's birds, give it a s/c 4.6 and that baby would fly, but if you ever wanted a touring coupe like in the 70's bird you could always just use the caddi sixteen concept since I think the orriginal cars were about that long! Then Ford could toss in that V10 of theirs and compete with uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, well nobody but it'd be cool anyways.

    Ouch, not one of your best. Terrible Grill, the car just looks heavy or chunky, the headlamps look like they have water filling up in the lower half, 90s style Pontiac cladding,
    It would make a pimp proud to have one!

    I can definitely see Ford rolling that out as an auto show concept. Probably wouldn't make it to the road though. Good job.
    Is it coincidence that Bob Lutz owns an Hidden Content

    You must be in a retro mood. J. Mays kind of feeling right?
