Gentlemen congrats on your 50th with the 59's. I had forgotten that the production would have geared up for the 59's about the end of October. Let's see how many 59's we have on the site and then let us know your birthdays for them.

Vern she is a beauty and the fall colours on the trees really bring out the body colour. Are they Maple trees in the background ??

Dano,

Yes, the bright orange tree is a maple and the green one is a birch. I went out specifically to find a nice orange tree for the backdrop of a new picture of my bird (still haven't named her). I would have centered the orange tree better but then I would have had picnic tables and grills in the picture. I bought the car in July and at this point it is a 20 footer. Many many flaws are hidden in this picture.

Wow!

Mine also has a 6/19/59 birthday. However mine is not in a museum, but in offsite storage.....

The ROT (http://users.gmavt.net/kphanson/squarebirds/t-bird_rot_sheets.htm) sheet can be seen here.
