I have a 2002 Thunderbird on order from my local dealer. It this time they will not commit to
selling it at sticker price. They say they will follow the other area dealers and sell them for what the
market will bear. I have agreed to buy it up to sticker price, but will get my deposit back if more
then sticker is being paid by other people in the area. I hope other people feel sticker price is quite
enough money for the car, and refuse to pay more.

Fair??

No, I don't believe this action is fair. I have heard that most of the dealers that are going to be delivering the new Birds will be collecting about $10k over the original sticker price due to the demand and increasing market value. Leave it to Ford...kill the Bird, bring back some little coupe that no one can afford and then limit the supply. Love/Hate relationship sometimes....

Dang I wish I was rich.....

They did the same sort of things when they introduced that Chrylser PT crusier in my area. There was actually a waiting list for them and people were paying up to $5,000 more for the car just to have it.

They should give it to you for sticker price if you commit to the deal. and leave a deposit. That's bull

Ofcourse it was going to MARKED WAY UP!! Wait till they make plenty of them, then buy one. Since this car appears not to have a HOT HOT HOT drive train, I suspect it will drop price wise in a few years after the initial production runs. It aint no Viper now folks....

Unfortunately, there will NEVER be "Plenty" of them. They are limited production vehicles. So, if we (the average Joe) want to get one that we can afford, it'll be a used one, several years down the road. Thanks Ford!

where are all the bird lovers?

I was hoping to find a group here for 2002 T-bird buyers, but it looks like this space belongs to the vintage car clubs. Which is fine, but it might explain why the Blue Oval T-bird board is attracting more newcomers.

Not many of us can afford or get ahold of a 2002 Bird. That's probably why there aren't many owners of them on here yet.

Vintage clubs?! My 88 is vintage already?! Cool! Maybe it'll be worth more! :)

Blue oval is getting more folks because it's been around a long time, we have been here a month. Not having the NEW Bird area up YET (soon) is not keeping folks away. Helck search under Ford on the net and this site does not come up yet.

I'm here...

What's to talk about though?

It will take time to get this site moving.

Most of the Bird owners stay in the TCCOA or SCCO, hell even MN12 Performance. You'll need to sway them over here. I can say, it starts off good...as your site will. Just keep a tight lid on the name calling and immaturity and your site will grow quickly. The TCCOA has started to turn into a mini "Corral". It's a shame that with growth comes a larger disparity in opinions and how to express those opinions. Everyone is entitled to he or she's thoughts and feelings, but not at the cost of someone elses.

You have a larger (HUGE) selection of forums here. I just hope you'll be able to keep up with all the posts that will be coming in. Otherwise, you have a great site here. Start filling it with technical information and great personalities and you'll have a winner.

Let me know if I can be of assistance.

Thanks for the feedback for the site A-Train. Eventually this site will get big, how big who knows.
