Car survey on our birds.....

Was reading a view reviews over at and found this post. Brought a smile to my face:

"1987 Ford Thunderbird Turbo Coupe from Germany

With an airbag this would be the ultimate Autobahn car
What things have gone wrong with the car?
Four alternators, one even caught fire, until I got a Bosch that has lasted 5 years.

Six power-steering pumps, all under warranty because the dealer did not use ATF in them.

Burnt valve at 160K.

Three fuel pumps.
General comments?
Great on the German Autobahn. The cruise control stops at 115 MPH. I have run the car at 130-150 MPH for over an hour at a time.

Very, very comfortable. Between adjusting the seat, 8 way power, and the steering column anyone can find the right driving position.

The steering is quick and you have to get used to it."
