  • Squarebirds in TV and Movies

    I have just been watching the first season of Perry Mason-
    The Case of The Long Legged Models features a 1958 Squarebird and further episodes feature a 1958 convertible driven by Paul Drake-They actually look great in black and white and its nice to see them being driven in contemporary surroundings

      I remember seeing a '59 convertible in an episode of the Twilight Zone. The odd thing that I noticed was that it had a black steering wheel. Of course the most famous show for Thunderbirds was 77 Sunset Strip. I have about 100 episodes and it's always interesting to watch. Especially when they go from a distance shot to a closeup and the year and model of the car changes. I guess they figured it was cheaper using a stock shot and nobody would notice.

        Here is a picture of my friend Eddie's (from New York) Thunderbird! She was seen in several parts of this movie. And of course I can't remember the name of the movie
