So far, I have added the Neiman Marcus chrome bezel to my hood and the embroidered T-Bird floor mats. Over the weekend, I made BY FAR the biggest improvement yet---the addition of the retro V8 emblems from the '02 Explorer. I purchased 2 of the emblems through Ford parts and placed them on the front fenders underneath the bottom character line. I CANNOT BELIEVE how good they look---should come from the factory this way. I put the emblems on Saturday and took the car to a party on Sunday----naturally the car was a huge hit but the most amazing thing to me was that the majority of people made the comment "wow--it really has a V8 in it"?

It seems to me that Ford has so *******ized the Thunderbird name over the years with V6 and even four cylinder engines that people have a hard time believing the new car has a V8. A lot of people were also surprised that the car is rear drive. Another comment I'm getting a lot--"it's hard to believe Ford made something this cool--didn't think Ford made neat stuff like this anymore".

Ford, if you are listening, don't ever ever ever ever ever put anything less than a V8 in the Thunderbird again---and seriously consider making those V8 emblems standard---they really do look perfect.

When folks see the emblems on my 93 LX, they think I have the 4.6L-and act surprised when I tell them, "Nope-it has the 5.0L HO V8!"
