Having been on these Thunderbird boards since last March, I remember a long-running argument in which someone suggested that the T-Bird is only for "chicks," and then a full-out war of words ensued. I just wanted to note that on my Route 66 trip last month, I noted that an equal number of men and women seemed to stare at the car, and that surprisingly, the longest looks I got were from TEENAGE BOYS!!! (And believe me, I don't think they were looking at my 40-something self.) Even little children would wave and follow me around. So it seems that this car appeals to all ages and sexes equally. Has anyone else had any observations?
