Thats why I like owning my Tbirds..... around here, you cant swing a dead cat without hitting a Mustang (classic and newer ones), Camaro & firebird (classic and newer ones), newer Corvette, new Charger, etc. I get way more "what kind of car is that?", "cool car!", and "thumbs up" than any of the much more common cars out there.

Only problem is, as we all know, is getting Tbird specific parts.

In the 9 years I've lived here I have seen zero pre-87 TC's and maybe two '87-'88 TC's on the road.

Brian that the good thing about our cars, not everybody has one. Even sitting in a parking lot broke down people were asking me about my car and how nice it is. They also say they love the lines on it and the design. I like not being the same as every Mustang, Camaro, and Corvette.

Golden Bird i know exactly what car your talking about, i saw him at a show in Hagerstown, MD a few years back.. i parked next to him at a show and put mine to utter shame!

there are a few around here but i usually know who it is since ive had a TC since 98 and everyone knows i love them. i love it when i tell people it has a 4 cylinder!
