Interesting assessment, @Robert, if you've ever owned a 1968 Ford Thunderbird and have tried to find information related to the cars, you would know that anything from 1967 to 1971 of that make/model will likely apply.
Most sites where I've tried to find information, it's extremely difficult to locate specific information on
Ford + Thunderbird + [1967|1968|1969|1970|1971], generally, on Google, my results span from Ford trucks to 1981 Thunderbirds to transmission sales for Ford Tempos.
I see your point about tags standing on their own, but how can we more easily target the questions and answers so that if I want to find information on only 1967-1971 Ford Thunderbirds, I can instantly narrow my search to that make and model and year range?
What do you suggest? Am I perhaps misinterpreting the purpose of this site? I picture a site where one can find answers to specific, expert level problems for the specific vehicle in question.
