That side profile is SICK.
Anyway, this thing would look sick in rattlecan spraypaint black with lettered tires/Cragars.

I disagree; that shade of blue is too nice to mess with. Considering that it isn't exactly from the most desirable of time periods it looks like it's been kept in impeccable condition.

I counted the Thunderbird name at least 10 times on the exterior, and are at least 11 bird logos.

I'm really ready for companies to move back to showing this level of pride. Surely ford could fit a couple dozen emblems on that new TAURUS SHOoooooh!

You must have coordinated with the owner of this near-mint condition gem of excess about parking it in front of that brown building. If so, that's a perfect color foil choice.

If this was a random find...I'm nearly speechless with awe.

Gazing on the wonderful condition of this car I find myself really drawn to it. And, on your blog, I usually tend to appreciate the photos of the cars and trucks with heavy patina. Just my bias. But this thing is over on the other end of the spectrum and I love it.

Fantastic work. Keep it up. One of these days this blog is going to get discovered by the NY Times or somebody like that and it is going to blow up.

Nothing says '70's quite like the boxy lines, the white vinyl landau roof, and crazy-shaped opera windows. I'm going to slip into my bell-bottom Jordache jeans, quianna shirt (buttoned halfway up my hairy chest), gold medallion chain, part my hair in middle, pop some 'ludes and I'll see you at the disco!

As I am looking at 70's T-Bird photos, I came across this picture and soon realized that it was my very own T-Bird! I had no idea that anyone posted pictures of my car. I took her out for a stretch that day and randomly parked on the street as we went to the new Mellow Mushroom in Portland for Pizza. I even went back to the car to retrieve my forgotten cell phone after we placed our order and had no idea that pictures had been taken. Thanks for the photos and comments!

I used to own this car. It came from Colorado and has been well cared for all it's life. I bought it from my brother who bought it from a female retired school teacher. I was happy to sell it to the new owner and I know he really likes it. As always this car POPS! when photographed. It was in the June 2009 Collectable Automobile magazine.
