I'm a certified Ford nut but for some reason the Bird never appealed to me enough to buy one . I have a lot of Fords on my bucket list but not the T-Bird . The '57 was probably my favourite for...

Re: 1958 Continental - OK to post on this forum?

Beautiful car ....not many around and certainly not in that condition . Yeah a heavy car will frequent gas stations but , like you said , it's worth it . Very classy ride .
