I just spent the last several hours updating Greg Prince's web page regarding his "Last Day Last Car" 60 Tbird, now known as "Lucille". The whole story is there, and the latest paint pictures also. Here is the link to it. Enjoy!

Ray, YOU ARE THE MAN!!!!!!!!!! Your dedication is above and beyond! The car will be having an in depth article done on it in "Old Cars Weekly". I sent in a note about it to Hemmings editor, have not heard back yet. Hot Rod may do an article also.

I JUST uploaded the pix that Greg sent me of "Lucille" that were taken after her new paint job. She is absolutely gorgeous! She looks like she must have looked 49 years ago when she came off the line! You can see them here!

Excellent web site of what was a great a story WITH a happy ending! Greg, that is one beautiful looking Bird, so fitting that it is the last of an era. Well done.

I had thought that the Oakland Press had dropped the story from their online system, but they have not! It is still there. I just had the URL wrong. I just spoke with Colleen Miller, who wrote the story. They will be doing a video interview with Bob Oeschger next week! They will post it on their website for all to view. I will let you know what the link is when I find out. Here is the current link to the story, which I put in Greg's web page also.

She hopefully is better LIVE than written!

we all need to take the appropriate links, and salt them out various places, people may have moved, know nothing about this thread...will help to drum up interest in Ford/American made cars again....

Congratulations Greg and of course, my fellow nose-hound, Ray
This was indeed a fabulous, exciting moment for us all, and I STILL get goosebumps just thinking about the joy and ending revelation!
