I Have Hit The Mother Lode!!
Thank you, Redneck, for your words... They are much appreciated. Those who knew him, loved him. He was so much to so many. I wish I had gotten to know him years ago. You mentioned family... I consider us ALL members of the Squarebird Family here on this Forum that Alexander and SandyBoy created...

I have a wealth of information at my fingertips now. Many things have probably never been seen by many of us. Others, who have been around since the beginning of the Forum might have seen them. As time permits, I will upload some really neat pix a bit at a time for you to enjoy.

I just finished fixing the Trunk Mat & Cardboard Installation Technical Tip for Squarebirds. It is on the TRL now. Just click on the link below my signature to see it.

I know that the Tom Young Squarebird Restoration Technical Tips are not working yet. However, last year I was able to restore them and they should be working now.

There is one Technical Tip that I have not been able to find any of the files for. The rest of them have been restored. It is Air-conditioning installation instructions for the 1960 Thunderbird. This is the original installation manual for putting in an A/C unit in a Thunderbird that did not originally come with one.

I would really like to restore that Tech Tip! It is a small manual. Does anyone have a copy of this manual that you can scan in and email to me? If you do, I can restore this one also. Send me a PM or email if you have a copy of it, please.

I have just finished re-creating the 1960 AC Installation Technical Tip from the Home page! I found all the pictures for it. It is now located on the Technical Resource Library. You can now see all the pictures. I had to post them in the portrait mode to make them as readable as possible. If Ken~GTE472 or anyone else has a copy of these instructions for installing a factory AC unit in a Tbird without AC, please let me know. I would like to find better quality pictures. But this is all I have to work with at the moment. Click on the TRL Link below to see the page.

I have just finished creating a new web page on the Technical Library Listing. It is the repair manual for the 1960 Radio, Speedometer and Clock! This CD is chock full of various manuals like this. I will put them up as I can. These are manuals, that to my knowledge, have never been uploaded to the Forum. Check it out! As usual, just click on the TRL link below! I is going to get some sleep! I am about web paged out for the night! :D

Hey Ray,
You are the man. Once again you have spent countless hours helping us and others who follow. My hat is off to you my friend. Alexander would be very proud of you for keeping what he (and others) started running. We would be lost without your input and your love of these fabulous old cars, the Ford Thunderbird!
Once again THANKS!!!
Richard D. Hord

Thanks for the nice comments. Much appreciated! I have decided to move this thread to the Squarebirds Forum for a couple of reason. First, what is in this thread applies primarily to Squarebirds. Secondly, I know, from past comments, that some of you don't visit the Anything Goes Forum. So i decided to move it here so all the Squarebird owners would see this and make use of the newly fixed and new Technical articles that are being posted. There are not as many "how to fix it" manuals as I thought there were on the CD. But there are more and I will upload those that I think are more important as soon as I can get to them. Enjoy!

Im totally stunned and filled with warm feelings over what you do for us Ray. All the time. Thanks you very, very much my friend! :)

While looking for some more "how to" manuals to create on a web page, I found these! Some of you Squarebird Forum Old Timers have probably seen these before, but please bear with us "Newbies"! First, Alexander said this is a pic of someone's '59 with a swingaway steering wheel, and a roof flipper. It is to bad Ford did not think about this for the Squarebirds! Then, for those of you who want to protect your hood and keep people from getting into it, check out this hood lock! More pix as I find them!

Ray the " mother lode " is just a testiment to your dedication to our site. You blow me away with your input, tenacity and continual support of our site. As one who was part of this retreival over a year ago, our members are very fortunate to have you onboard. Great job.

Thank you for those comments, Dan. They are much appreciated!:p Penelope just told me in email that his '59 has one of those hood locks on it and it works fine! I don't know whose Tbird that is, or where they got the lock. It is something someone picked up aftermarket apparently, but it does the trick, according to Bill!
