New guy in Maryland, '60 Thunderbird
Howdy folks, my name is Paul and a friend and I recently bought a 1960 Thunderbird Hardtop. It has a 352, automatic, power seat, power windows, power steering and power brakes.

I also have a 1962 Galaxie that I cruise around, it has the factory 292 but now sports a 4 barrel.

Welcome Paulie ...
Sweet Galaxie. The Squarebird looks very clean. Can't say I love the paint job, but to each his own and it can always be re-shot if you don't like it. Mike

Hey Paul,
Love the Galaxie! The custom paint job on the Thunderbird is awesome, really makes the body lines show out! Very nice Bird!

Yeah, baby! I like BOTH your cars. Your Y-Block is one of the last, and getting rare to find (especially G and 113 heads w/1.92 intake valves). I like the four-barrel, too.

Your cars are CLEAN!

Beautiful cars! The bird reminds me of the custom job on the Watson car.

Thanks for the compliments guys :D.
The pics of the Thunderbird are a little hazy because the weather was terrible. There is a bright green pinstripe around the House of Color Aztec Gold that doesn't show up well in the pics.

Paul she is a real beauty and certainly a unique paint scheme. Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top would be jealous.

You are a lucky guy to have two shape car I do like the paint job on the bird different but out standing

. . . gettin close

I picked up the correct fuel pump with vacuum assist and had to change the balancer because the one that was on there came apart. Figured while I was down that far I'd put a new balancer seal in and the water pump had a little slop so I changed that too. Shouldn't be much longer until it's finished (for now that is :D :rolleyes:) and I'll get some pics of the finished product added.

ps - the clock is still running . . . . . . . well, like a clock.
