    ....Ford re-modeled the Thunderbird into a real Corvette competitor! Enjoy.

    That would be nice !
    Sorry China, we'll buy your disposable electronics and lead coated toys, but when we Americans want a cheap car with horrible quality, we get a Chrysler.

    Sure, Ford could make a Thunderbird to take on the Corvette (The 55-57 Thunderbird sales dominated the Corvette) but then they got cheap & gave up- history repeats itself

    it looks alright, but i don't see a lot of distinctive design elements, to ford, or thunderbird so much. not that you have to go retro or anything, but the car just looks a bit generic right now. also, the stance and rake of the car are very different to that of a corvette, would you intend it to be mid or rear engined? not that it would have to be, the proportions just look more similar to something like a lamborgini than a vette i guess, which is fine too, of course. i'm not saying it HAS to look any certain way, just curious.

    It'd be sad if the Corvette got beat, but anyways that drawing is really awesome.
