    Thanks to Valvoline for sponsoring this episode! Valvoline’s first breakthrough in motor oil was introducing it. And they’ve been re-inventing it ever since, from the world’s first high mileage oil to the world’s first synthetic blend. There are those who change with the times and those who drive them. Learn more at Valvoline.com/original.
    Ford Thunderbird was meant to be the Ford Motor Company's answer to the Chevy Corvette. From Square Birds to Bullet Birds to Aero Birds to Retro Birds, this American icon got bigger and bigger (literally) and even shared the same platform as the Foxbody Mustang! So take flight with James Pumphrey as we discover how it all happened and meet the people who shaped it into a National Treasure. Except this one we don’t have to steal from the Decoration of Inner Pendants!

Nice to see someone giving the Thunderbird some love but why skip over the entire MN12 (89-97) generation?? It was used as a test bed for Ford technology for years to come and was incredibly innovative and quite ahead of it's time.

Hey I dont know anything about round track racing and/or NASCAR, but when he said the Tbird held the 1987 Stock car speed record average of 212 mph, what does that really mean? Did the same engine offered to the public in 1987 have the ability to do the same minus the restrictions placed on all street cars engines? And yes Im really that ignorant, at least here you wont recognize me in the grocery store and laff....

Really enjoyed the video. While I agree that the gas crisis hurt the car, I don't think it lacked personality in the 70's, and would have at least liked to see photos of the different generations.

I thought they had made it because the corvette just came out and they developed it so fast that they had to unveil a wooden mockup of it and release the actual thing a little while later? (Got that from a book about fords) but I guess it might have been wrong. Idk

Had a 97 T-Bird, was probably one of the best cars that I owned. It was the car that switched my brother and his family, a tried and true bowtie crew, to purchasing several Mustangs thru the years.
