About “Tandepöödi”



I've always wanted to own MN-12 model T-bird. Long time ago before my driving licence, I had a crush on Thunderbirds. I'm from Finland, and these birds are much more rare here than in USA. I feel honored to own one of these over here. As it's a big and stylish coupe, it's always turning heads wherever I go. It is totally different thing than any euro trash we got here.

I got her in -06 summer, and since then it's been my daily driver. Winter is no problem as long as you got some weight in the trunk. It handles really great, and it's always fun to sit behind the wheel. I've driven many cars so far, but T-bird has some special feeling that I haven't felt in any other car.

For it's age it's in very good shape (thanks to the lovely lady owner in USA). Until -06 summer when I got her, she's been virgin to salt. As it was gonna be my daily driver, her body and bottom have been given the right treatment and protection against the salty and heavy winter conditions we got here.



About “Black Beauty”

My brother Dean enlisted in the Navy recently and asked me, his 18 year old little sister, to take care of his Camaro SS convertible for him while he is in the service. (He's either very trusting or very stupid!) He knew from the day he bought the car that I loved it, but until now he never even let me drive it! He lived a couple hundred miles from us, but came home for a week visit before leaving for basic training, and he checked me out on the car before he left. To make everything official, he put the car in my dad's name (so the insurance would cost less!), but I'm taking care of paying for everything including basic upkeep, regestration, inspection, and insurance. Dad even volunteered to park his car outside so mom's car and the Camaro can be parked in the garage. The Camaro will only come out to play on clear days with no chance of rain or snow. My Cavalier will still be my daily car. I want to be able to return the car to my brother in as good a shape as it's in now!

Mods for “Black Beauty”

I have not and will not do anything to this car. I'm keeping it the way my brother 'gave' it to me so he'll get it back the same way. I don't know what he may have done to it. I didn't ask, but he didn't mention anything.
