í02 Ford Thunderbird

I had no need for a new car when I test-drove this one in May of 2002. I had no intentions of buying something as impractical as a two-seat roadster, but my wife said, "I havenít seen you so happy in a long time. You need to buy that car." And so I did. I love the color (yellow) and the two-tone seats. Not a day has gone by in the last 16 years when somebody hasnít commented on it. Usually they ask what year it is and if they are still made. (No.) Although I drive the T-Bird quite a bit, I do have another vehicle, so the mileage on this 16-year-old car is just over 60,000 miles. And unlike some in this column who regret not having their favorite car anymore, I will never sell mine!
