Re: T-Bird 62 worth it?
You got it sorta wrong.
What I was saying is, the thing just isn't up there with a modern ride as far as it's capabilities are concerned. I can pay for it's gas, it's alright as long as it lasts I'd say.
However, this isn't a house or something that I'm going to rely my life upon. This is nothing more than a hobby vehicle at this time and date. It sure as hell is a cruiser and not a dragger.
Regardless, if I'm buying such thing and paying all that money out of my pocket, then I damn want it to perform as well. I don't want to pussy drive it. It has a Vortex V8 390. cu that is good for 300 HP and 220kW torque and I really want to unleash the beast within.
More so, the fact of it being "classic" or whatever barely means jack anymore now that the thing is ancient. If it wasn't for people like me, it might have just been left in a museum...
and T-Bird's have never been all that great cars anyway. If this was something among the lines of an Eldorado, I'd have agreed. But a T-Bird 62 is just that... it's a cruise car and it barely has much place near the modern rides and roads.
I want it to be scaleable and I want it to ****ing scream on a straight line...
