Those old ads are pretty great! I have bought so many old Time magazines to try and find ads on the tbird! I have a bunch of different car ads now, but not a tbird. I finally gave up and bought one from Mac Auto.

Well I don't really think of the turquoise as feminine, but definitely retro. I shined up the bird today for a Monday show, then while cruising Main St. a car next to me had folks commenting how cool the car was, but they didn't know about the turquoise. I didn't think too much of their (Chevy) van either though. lol.

Default Thunderbirds at Show

Just got home from a local Memorial Day car show. The Thunderbirds were represented. My 60, two baby birds and a 63. The one baby bird from our car club got a People's Choice award.
I had fun! Beautiful day here in the Rockies. One guy said my car is his wife's dream car. She got a picture in mine and was very happy. That's what it's all about!!

Default Debra's '60 Tbird Pix

Hi Deb, first of all let me comment about turquoise! When I was looking for my '59 Squarebird, I was looking for an Indian Turquoise body and Colonial White top, because Faye liked turquoise and so do I. I could not find one available at the time I was looking. About four months after I bought Rose, I did. To late now. So I found Rose in Casino Cream with a white top and changed her to the color you see today in tribute to Faye because she loved bright yellow roses, and Tweety Bird.

I am glad that you enjoyed the car show, and perhaps helped someone along the way towards fulfilling their dream! Congratulations to the owner of the Babybird that got the award. I decided not to go to the Memorial Day car show today for several reasons. One of them is the heat, as it was to be in the high 90's today. The other is that I am still recovering from the "Great Flood" I experienced when the waterbed bladder broke weeks ago and flooded my master bedroom. After getting a new pad and carpet down last week, today, I got my waterbed frame totally together, and have put the dresser, night tables, and stuff back on the headboard and the drawers back in the dresser and under the waterbed. I did a lot of polishing of wood on that waterbed and dresser and drawers. In a few more days, a new insert California Queen pillow top mattress will be here to put in that frame. No more waterbed bladders for me! I gots to get my house back in order before Bill ~ Penelope and his wife Deb, from Perth, Australia show up here in the next couple of weeks for a few days visit! He is looking forward to driving Rose! I am getting there!

Default Waterbed

Ray,

Sorry about the flood! I haven't had a waterbed for a long time, but still remember that issue. Sorry you had to deal with it.

I love that turquoise bird picture! I would definitely like to have it too! Yes, the black one from our club is nice with the continental kit. The 63 today was aquamarine I think. The other baby bird was yellow with a tan leather interior. If I had taken photo's if them I would post. I figure my family is getting tired of looking at my car photos, so I tried to cut back. . Then I'm sorry I didn't get a picture. Lol. Deb

Yes, I liked giving that lady a picture in her dream car! Have a good time with your company. We also have company coming this week.
