1983 Ford Thunderbird
Audio & Electronics
In Late June of 1983 I replaced my El Camino with a brand new Thunderbird (To this day, the only new car I’ve ever owned)...
I had to really fight with the people at the dealership to get the car the way that I wanted it… It was a very stripped down, plain black, steel wheeled version, with a 302 V8 / auto trans and absolutely NO luxury options… I had big plans to build it into a drag racer / road racer with lots of engine and suspenion mods to help make the most of that (at the time) oh, so slippery, body… They (the dealer) kept trying to put me in a Mustang… I really pissed them off by sticking to my guns!
Anyway, the race car never really materialized, as I wound up marrying and raising a family instead and the T-bird became our daily driver accumulating some 230,000 miles before I sold in 2000….. The irony…. The guy who bought it turned it into a tube chassised, pro stock style, drag car!
