Nothing quite like a 15-year-old thread that's back from the dead. Thanks, internet! :)

Why don't you just sell the T-bird outright, you will get far more money that way, then, go buy a 4000, and pocket the difference (your profit from the sale of aforementioned TB). :wink:

Where would I EVER find a 4000?????

Once you have cash in hand, you might get luckier than trying to trade your TB for one. Maybe.
