Twice during the week that I owned my new Thunderbird, admirers of the car have asked me if it's a new Chrysler! The eggcrate grille is somewhat like Chrysler's current designs. Of course when I explain that it's a new Thunderbird, both folks had no trouble recalling the early Bird resemblance. It's amazing how everyone marvels at the beauty of the design. I haven't heard one negative comment.
