6) 6 Retro Flops, and 6 Concept Cars That Should Have Replaced Them

After a five-year absence, the legendary Ford Thunderbird nameplate returned for 2002 as a rounded tribute to the original T-Birds of the 1950s. It certainly appealed to an older crowd that appreciated the look, but younger buyers weren't into the styling that resembled a used soap bar.<br />
Under the skin, the 'Bird had promise. It rode on the same rear-drive chassis as the Lincoln LS and Jaguar S-Type (Jaguar was owned by Ford at the time) and used a version of the Jag V-8, making 252 hp paired to a five-speed automatic. That sounds like a recipe for a relatively exciting car. But instead of firming the chassis for fun back-road driving, Ford tuned it for a relaxing ride. This was a real Palm Beach cruiser—especially when painted in one of several retro pastel hues. Unfortunately, it was not the hot seller Ford had hoped for.<br />
