It was with a little sadness that we said goodbye to the 1961 Thunderbird. We had fun, fun, fun for five years until Daddy decided it was time to let her bring a smile to someone else's face. Old Blue is now prowling the mean streets of Arp, TX, pop. 983.
In its place, yet another Ford and another Mustang. I am a sucker for Dearborn, This is the sixth FoMoCo product I have invested in. And while the 2011 Pony lacks the "Jenna Said What" of the old T-Bird, that 3.7L 305HP V6 kicks butt, gets good gas mileage and did not break the bank. Isn't that all that matters?
