Who actually reads MSN.com anyways? The author doesn't know anything about cars nor does he even drive them. All of his views are based off of second hand accounts.

this guy doesnt live in so cal.

all i know is, i have had my black sky for almost 2 years now. i work in and near hollywood, and beverly hills, in a place where 250k bentlys are a dime a dozen, and i still get way too much attention to the sky. and because there are so few out here, i get the best parking by the valets all the time....

it still cracks me up that i am driving a $26k car, that makes the snobs look.

That's not exactly true. Once the market gets really saturated, the car loses a bit of it's uniqueness and pizazz! With the loss of the F-Body, many of those buyers that wanted a F-Body had to settle for the only muscle car still on the road. Thus, the need was there and Ford cranked those puppies out like there was no tomorrow. Hence, over-saturation! Cripe, I work for a small company that has only 120 employees and there are two of those in our lot (new body style). With the new Challenger and 2009 Camaro coming back out, sales of the Mustang will plummet once again. Unfortunately, the newness has already worn out and Ford has already rode that one into the sunset....

author 'Tom Wilson' went from hero-to-zero faster than junior-high socialites! That sums up his life story pretty much in my opinion.

This review is his take on the car industry. As we move through life our car space needs change ... surprise? Some of these reviewers, I swear, never sat in or drove a Kappa car. From various magazines we all have read, they are cut-paste stories that make a big deal out of the trunk. Most of us know that by packing correctly, we can get an awful lot of 'stuff' into that space. However, we knew that before buying this car that the trunk was small .. so what is the surprise? If it don't fit ..either I don't need it or ship it!

Personally I enjoyed the Thunderbird simply from the engineering stand point that it was the first of the "retro" cars. It was a test bed for all the others that came after it, The PT Cruiser, the new mustang, Chevy SSR (should have made that list too btw), Camero, and Charger, hopefully we will see a new firebird as well. The concepts originally started with the new thunderbird evolved into all the new vehicles that came after. It was a great car to learn from. IMHO
