I had a '65 also and I have to admit it drove better and had the kick you are talking about. But the '58 - '60 just a sharper bird, they have that look. I call mine the land yacht
I like the way they sit and the lowered look, just to cool! And I call that, what did yall call it dog leg, no no no thigh buster. The first time my son gone in Christine and busted his leg on that, he asked: what did Ford do make a windshield and build a car around it? I also have a '78 Thunderbird and I have to agree the '58 -'60 are the sharpest Birds Ford ever built!!! No offense to anyone intended.
