Just wanted to introduce myself, just joined, great to meet everyone

My dad has a 1960 sunroof with A/C and the two tone leather since 1989 that is now part of the family

hopefully back on the road this summer after being in dry storage since the mid-80s with the car's two previous owners (besides a cameo appearance in the summer of 2002)

car is all original besides a paint job in the early 70s to copper from gold, california black plated, car has had 4 owners, previous owner towed it up to Ontario, Canada from California

i'll add a pic once i figure that out

Hi Paul, and Welcome! When I processed your application for Squarebirds.org membership, I posted a Welcome to you in the New Members Welcoming Forum, and you should have also received a Private Message (PM) from me. We would love to see some pix of your Tbirds and you can post them in the Our Rides Forum. Here is a link to the welcome that I posted to you and it will explain the ways to go about posting pix on this Forum.

Make sure you go to the Thunderbird Registry http://www.tbirdregistry.com and enter it. Since you've owned it since '89 it's probably not in there yet.

forgot to mention my dad also has a complete sunroof roof that he took off a parts car that was rotted away in the early 1990s, i've always have intentions of putting it onto a 1958 hardtop ... it's buried in storage so a picture of unlikely for awhile but i'll get one eventually

came off a black car with the traditional red/white interior... car had air to, it was nice just canadian (aka done)
