I am the 87 year old father of Tom Tabor (my name also) who many of you know. I purchased Tom's gold bird in October of 1960 when it was new. I plan on sharing information with all of you about this and other Ford products which I owned. this is really just a first time post to check if it reaches you. Looking forward to future posts Tom R. Tabor

Hey Dad, Welcome to the Squarebirds! Now I better be careful on what I say about my Father! ;)

Welcome Tom II. Boy, I wish that I knew what you know. Good to have you on Squarebirds.

Tom Sr., I too, am very honored to welcome you to Squarebirds.org.

Your son sings your praises a lot. He cherishes ‘his Dad’s Thunderbird’ and he’s excited to bring you to Dearborn later this month. It is clear to me that your son idolized you. He wants to make the Dearborn event very special for you, and he is especially excited to bring you in your ‘old’ car.

I would love to hear your stories, as I am an old Ford guy, myself. I don’t have a Thunderbird but I do have a ’59 Galaxie and a ’55 Customline. I hope to make you and your son's aquaintance, as I live in Royal Oak, MI (a spit from I-75). I pass Bay City quite often, on my way up north. – Dave Dare

Hey Mr. Tabor,
Welcome to Squarebirds! We would love to hear any old Ford stories you have. Tom is mighty proud of the Thunderbird that you bought new! I hope you both can enjoy her!

Great to have the old man on the forum:cool:

Looking at that picture again, make me realize why I just love that gold color. Very few other colors bring forward the shape of the body like this do. And even if I have never been a fan of convertibles, this one blows me away every time I look at it. :)
I showed it to a few collegues at work this morning, and after quite a discussion, we agree that it is better than gold, so we gave it the name "Warm Silver" :)
