Re: Lets show off the thunderbird we have

Guess my TBird has reached that point.

Came out of a garden store the other day, and one of the workers, looking at my 94 LX, commented on the style and shape.

This is starting to happen more frequently lately. These 90's TBirds have a classic style.

(Just nine more years till she's considered a true classic.)

Badass Gary you found one!

Is this the one that you were talking about before?


Can't wait to see where you take it, make a Progress thread so I can keep up with the events!

Yep that's the one man! Don't look like much now, but she grabbed at my heart strings the first second I laid eyes on her!

Re: Lets show off the thunderbird we have

That is awesome FE!


It looks really solid from the photo, nice find!


If you're needing some parts let me know. I was thinking of going to Trust Salvage in Auburn this weekend. Supposedly the owner has a ton of old cars and seems really cool from talking to him on the phone.

I'm looking to get my hands on a set of risers and rails for my '66 and maybe scoring something for my '62 though I'm not sure what I'd want aside from the XL stuff.

If there's something that you want me to keep an eye out for just holler.
