Great song, great car and a very nice video. Sure don't make 'em now like they used to.

Thumbs up

I forgot about this Mr.Mister song. I must have been in Jr.High School back then??

Def. don't remember the Squarebird in the vid.

Looks like this Bird had pwr. windows, leather seats, and look at those "odd" outside mirrors.

Default Ritchie Valens

Now that I'm convinced it was a '58 hardtop that Ritchie had, I wonder if he was influenced (that is if he had any say in the matter) by the CARNU ad that appeared in various publications in 1958 featuring a monarch blue '58 Thunderbird hardtop (albiet with a white roof)? Over the years I have only seen one monarch blue '58 and it was a convertible (like the Danbury mint model).
