This afternoon, I received a phone call from Nick Stoddard, who runs Thunderbird Crazy. We had an enjoyable, lengthy conversation regarding the couple of Squarebirds they have for sale, a '59 and a '60, as I recall, plus that Golde Top on eBay. With his permission, I am going to list his contact information in our Advertisements Forum, as another source for Squarebirds and Squarebird parts only. Here is what I have put together after talking with him.

He bought a tractor/trailer and a half full of T-Bird Ted's Squarebird parts several years ago. He has a lot of 58-60 Squarebirds parts but none of them have been put into an inventory. He has divided them up into sections in his warehouse depending on what the parts are for. He has about 100-150 NOS parts in stock, of various kinds, including about a half dozen NOS rear trunk antenna's in the boxes. You would have to call him using this number above, his cell phone, or email him and tell him what you are looking for. He will have to go search and see if he has it in stock. Calling his cell phone is probably the best way to contact him.
I suspect that the problems anyone might have had in contacting him are because there is more than one company involved here. His Dad is the overall owner and has other business's. Nick wears several different hats, and one of them is running Thunderbird Crazy in between the other jobs he has. He is often in the field working other company projects, and usually checks his emails and phone calls as he can. He said if you contact him, allow some time for him to respond. If you have been calling the number on his website, you are getting the main office and he, apparently, is not getting your messages.
JohnG, I told him that you are trying to get in contact with him and to check his messages and please respond to you. He said he would see if he could find your information.
Regarding that 1960 Golde Top on sale on eBay by them. For someone who owns a Golde Top and is in need of parts for the sliding top, this might be a Tbird you may want to snatch up. It would give you parts for the Golde Top that are nearly impossible to find these days. That windbar across the front, when
it can be found, goes for $500++ IF
you can find one by itself. I know, because over the years, I have tried to help several Golde Top owners find one. Usually to no avail. So for the Golde Top parts itself, it might be worth snatching up. To restore it might not be feasible to do... Unless you have deep pockets....
