Picture of the week - Ford Thunderbird

The Ford Thunderbird was a direct response to the Chevrolet Corvette. With its elegant shape and the focus on luxury plus sport it was an instant success and sold much better than the Corvette. It came in many color combinations and even today they make a remarkable appearance in any oldtimer gathering. It's certainly not the type of car that would fit to the handling criteria mentioned in my last blog post, but they are great to look at. And for many that's enough.
