Well... he's selling an American ride in Euro's, and he put in that it's a 65. It's not, the thing is clearly a 62.
I do realize that it's a very rare item that has value, which is why I'm considering to buy it.
Though, I have some quirks with it. It only has 3 gears, pretty much maxes out at 100 MPH, and burns a ton of gas.
It indeed is a very nice car but I still am not sure about buying it purely due to the amount of gas it outputs.
I already spend a lot of money on my computer hobby and not sure if I want this thing to be hosing my wallet while polluting the air. Inefficiency is something to really consider at this time and date.
If I bought a car of that age , in original condition and that mileage , I would not consider driving it at 100 mph .If you are concerned with mpg and top speed , it's not for you .It would be sacrilege to abuse a car of that year and condition with hard driving .
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...
Thanks. I haven't decided actually, am still considering stuff.
Well actually, the thing I don't like some Ford's about is their inconsistency to deliver.
I mean, take Ford trucks for example. The Raptor is one hell of a fast truck, so was the SVT Lightning. Though, beyond those, most Ford trucks are majorly inferior to Cummings. I mean, a Power Wagon RAM can take it up on a giant Ford dualie... haven't really gotten the love for Ford trucks. Mostly thought they were shit lol.
