Khloe Kardashian Poses in a 1955 Ford Thunderbird: Didn’t Like The Jeep?

Keep up with the Kardashians... or don’t. Who cares what you think of them, as long as they keep the fame flag up and money in. Freshly-turned-30 Khloe Kardashian’s latest Instagram post shows her driving a classic jewel, the 1955 Ford Thunderbird. We’re wondering what boyfriend French Montana things about that considering he just bought her a new Jeep Wrangler Sahara as a birthday gift.

Kardashian or Jenner, it doesn’t really matter what your name is as long as you are somehow involved on the fanatic reality show that made this family famous in the whole U.S. But being celebrity is something your work at every hour of your whole life, so these people need to keep their fans close. What better way to do that than keeping haters even closer. And when you keep juggling with hundred-thousand luxury rides it’s exactly what you’ll attract.

Khloe K. just got a brand new Jeep Wrangler Sahara finished in white, as a birthday gift from reported boyfriend rapper French Montana, but it seems that is not enough for her anymore. What surprises us is seeing Khloe at the wheel of this classic American.

As a direct response to Chevrolet’s new sports car, the Corvette, the Thunderbird had a two-seat coupe or convertible layout. Production began in 1954 and the car hit the market as a 1955 model, in the same year. Though sharing some design characteristics with other Fords of the time, such as single, circular headlamps and tail lamps and modest tailfins, the Thunderbird was sleeker and more athletic in shape. It came with features like a faux hood scoop and a 150 mph (240km/h) speedometer hinting a higher performance nature that other Fords didn’t have.

As to what Khloe is driving in the picture, well it’s the actual 1955 model. With its stunning looks, even though it was billed as a personal luxury car, Ford put a greater emphasis on comfort and convenience features, rather than its inherent sportiness. The Thunderbird sold exceptionally well in its first year, even out-selling its competitor, the Corvette, by more than 23-to-one for 1955.

You see, this baby has nothing to do with nowadays off-roaders, not that we don’t like those as well. So Khloe should better make up her mind, because nobody is actually able to do both.
