Ford Thunderbird … aka “The T-bird” (1) ⚡️⚡️⚡️ ========================= (1958, Ford Thunderbird Convertible ... The short story – extracts: The Ford Thunderbird was first produced for the 1955 model year and has continued production through eleven generations. The Thunderbird created a market niche that eventually created the segment known as the personal luxury car. Though inspired by, and positioned directly against, the Corvette, a greater emphasis was placed on the car's comfort and convenience features rather than its inherent sportiness. Although the 1955–57 Thunderbird was a success, then Ford company managers were concerned that the car's position as a two-seater limited its sales potential. As a result, the car was redesigned as a four-seater for 1958. The new Thunderbird began a sales momentum previously unseen with the car, selling 200,000 units in three years, four times the result of the two seat model. The second generation Thunderbirds were offered in both hardtop and convertible body styles, although the latter was not introduced until June 1958, five months after the release of the hardtop. The new Thunderbird was considerably larger than the previous generation, with a longer 2,870 mm wheelbase to accommodate the new back seat. The increased size also increased the car's weight significantly by approximately 450 kg. Along with a new, more rigid unibody construction was new styling, including quad headlights, more prominent tailfins, a bolder chrome grille, and a larger, though non-functional, hood scoop. Powering the Thunderbird was a new, 300 h-m 5.8 l, V8, available with a three-speed manual or automatic transmissions. With only 2,134 T-bird Convertibles built this is truly a rare classic car.

Не устали от недельных обзоров авто? Сделаем с ними паузу, так как у меня накопилось немало другого интересного контента. И на этой неделе я планирую делиться именно им.👨💻 ⠀ Кстати, на днях я впервые посидел за рулём 21 Волги (которые Деточкин воровал в "Берегись автомобиля"). Интересные ощущения: огромный тонкий руль, диван вместо кресел, довольно просторно, наверное даже можно сесть спереди втроем.🚘 ⠀ #yes_notes #ЕС_заметки
Garage update. The first 1.000 km are done with the #mazda#626 CB2 Coupé. How did the Reliant Scimitar replacement behaved so far? Lets cut to chase - it lacks all the special character myScimitar had. But as excentric as a Scimitar is, its hard to replace, isn't it? But as a cruiser it was almost the perfect replacement. Any problems so far? Japanese reliabilty and parts availability - well, it had some issues. So my car came from a collection, and one of the first things I did was changing all fluids. When I changed the coolant I noticed, that the old coolant had an unhealthy brown color. But as the radiator looked new I thought that this must have been replaced not to long ago, with some remains of sealent in it. Naturally I thought replacing the thermostat could be a good idea. While replacing the thermostat I managed to destroy the thermostat housing - cousing a major problem. Finding a fitting thermostat housing turned out to be a huge hassle, ending up on Ebay Australia. Anyways, so I got the part, changed the thermostat - all should have been good. It wasnt. A slight weather change brought sun and some higher temperatures outside. Long story short, I made it to my garage, with no coolant at all. The radiator was toast. Luckily enough I could get my hands on a used one at the same day (which I still can't believe, but yes, someone sold a 1979 Mazda 626 radiator). Other than that: pretty damn good. I got some additional lights and what I need now are some new nice looking wheels.
