Ford recalls early-build T-birds
Ford in the US has voluntarily recalled 16,500 of its new-retro Thunderbirds because it's worried about their seat belts.
According to the Associated Press news wire service, the recall follows a 35mph (56kmh) frontal impact crash test of an early-build Thunderbird which showed the driver's seat belt was partially cut.
Ford says it hasn't had any customer reports of the potential problem.
The car maker says it will begin sending letters to customers next week. The letters will detail timing for Thunderbird owners to take their cars to dealerships.
Ford says owners won't be charged for the modification. Cars built after April 24, this year, are not affected.
You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
