Like the mythological creature of the indigenous people of North
America, the Thunderbird was introduced as a sporty, two-seat convertible in 1955. In 1958, the T-Bird gained a
second row of seats and in 1977 the line downsized and was again in 1980. In 1983, it was also downsized but
sales were good until 1990s but the large 2-door coupes became unpopular again. It was the end of 1997 when the
production ceased. However, in 2002, the production of the Thunderbird started again. This time they revived the
2-seat model which was available until the end of 2005. Since it first came out in 1955, the Thunderbird has
produced more than 4.4 million Thunderbirds.
Insuring a Thunderbird is cheap. Yes, you heard it, however, since the
production of this car is not longer in existence then you might have a problem with that. There are limited
places where the parts of this car are being sold, so some car insurance companies may charge you much with the
cost of repairs and replacement of parts. The year that the model was made is also something that other car
insurance companies look at. If your Thunderbird is old then you may have to consider getting a classic’s car
insurance as this car may have other feature that needs special insurance.
There are also ways in which you can keep your premiums at a minimum,
like putting safety accessories on your car, keeping a low mileage and the likes. While all of these are
helpful, there are also things that can affect your rates. Keep in mind that factors like your location can
affect your rates too. If you live in the city or downtown area then most likely, the threats that could happen
too your car is something car insurers are considering. Because of this, they may charge you with a high rate.
Another factor that can cost you high premiums is your age and gender. If you are male and under 25 years old,
chances are you will be charged with high rates. This is because insurers based their charges on the fact that
most car accidents are caused by male drivers under the age of 25years old. So if you are a young male driver,
expect that car insurance companies will charge you with expensive rates.
Your driving record can also add a plus or minus on your premiums. If
you are a good and safe driver then you get cheap rates but if you are the opposite then expect that you won’t
be so fortunate with the premium charges. So if you have been involved with a single car accident or a simple
speeding ticket, this could affect your premiums even if it just happened once.
If you really want to save money from insuring your Thunderbird then it
is best that you find the best quotes and compare them. If you are still unsure about what coverage you want
then talk to a car insurance agent. This way you can see your other options and at the same time, have your
questions answered by someone who can answer you directly.
