I have seen the pix of your '78 Tbird before and she is just as pretty as I last remember seeing her! That is a year of the Tbird that I wanted to buy back then, but never did. I thought it was a pretty style with that banded roof and the overall appearance of it. One of our club members has one that is as good looking as yours. I have a picture of it in the web site I created for the VTCI South Central Region Convention. It still grabs my attention.

Richard, I bought my wife a car just like your 78 Diamond Jubilee in 1990. It was our first TBird and she had two car seats in the back. I bought it for $2500 from a body/paint guy who had just re-finished it. His girlfriend was so upset that he sold it that I sold it back to him for $2500 three years later and bought my wife a SuperCoupe (...dangerously fast car.) Story is that the guy with the 78 parked it behind his girlfriend's house and a tree fell on the roof, caving it in. He fixed it!... and sold it.

Hey Mike,
That's scary! (the part about the tree)
I first fell in love with that body style when in 1977 Bobby Allison (NASCAR driver) started running a Thunderbird that favored a Diamond Jubilee. It was not till the following year Ford released that body style. I was torn between a LTD II and a DJ! Dad happened to find one totaled. We made a offer on it and got the car. Dad told me there it is now you work and get the money to fix it I worked all summer doing odd jobs and got the money to send her to the body shop. They spend almost two months rebuilding her and she looked like a new car when she was finished. A seventeen year old kid with a top of the line Thunderbird! She was my pride and joy!
I had her for almost a year and met a car on my side of the road and I took the ditch. She rolled several times and was totaled. I was sick!
Some friends of mine knew of a dealership owner that had one just like mine put away. They talked to him and I contacted him and we made the deal! (the DJ in the pictures)
This car has a lot of segmental value My wife now and I started dating in this car and we have been married almost twenty-nine years! I have wanted to run DJ on Ebay and see what she would bring and my wife says NO

Hi Carter, I am not sure what you mean about recommending to you a classic set of Thunderbirds. Are you asking which year of 1967-2005 Thunderbirds might be the best to consider buying? Tbirds don't usually come in "sets" per se, except that for many years they were manufactured in similar styles, usually for 3 years at a time. Then the style was changed, as is often the case for many car manufacturers. For example, the 1955-1957 Babybirds looked much like each other. As did the 1958-1960 Squarebirds, the 1961-1963 Bulletbirds, and the 1964-1966 Flairbirds, and so on. If you are interested in buying a Tbird, and want one of the newest models available, I would consider buying a 2002-2005 Retro-Bird. Unless you want a bigger, four passenger car. Then I would look at one of the late 1990's Tbirds. Perhaps you can define exactly what you are looking for?
