David very nice indeed, looks to be a fine example of a Golde.
Don't underestimate the power of that 430 they have so much torque it rarely comes out of top gear

I was surprised to find out that the Thunderbird only weighs 3-400 lbs more than that Gallardo and the 430 motor in that thing has 120 more lb ft of torque put all to that back end?!? That's outstanding I seriously can't wait to drive this car

The fuel consumption is probably about the same as the Lambo too....note consumption as there is no economy...

Lol...that's funny you say that cause I was just reading the specs when I got that torque number and just two seconds ago was telling my wife that the mpg is actually WORSE!! I hardly thought that possible...when romping on the G through the mountains it would pull around 6-8 mpg average...looks like that 430 motor is that thirsty on average just cruising around huh?
I don't buy cars to save dough (obviously) but that is impressive anybody on the board tune up one of those motors? Seems like they have the potential to make some pretty crazy power.

I have to agree with that, if you are worried about the amount of fuel you use don't buy a collectible car.
Of the 11 I own 1 is a four all the rest are V8's 350 x 2, 305, 383, 400, 392, 396 diesel, 430 x 2, and a 368 the four is in the '27 Dodge and gets crap mpg anyway
