After discussion between our Administrators and Moderators, it was decided to add a Forum for our fellow Little Bird members and other owners. We have about 20 of our members who are also owners of Little Birds. As our Webmaster, Dave Dare ~ simplyconnected said, we do not know why we never had one. We hope that you will make very good use of this Forum. For those of you who want to post pictures on our server, there are a couple of ways to do it. I refer you to our Announcement & Administrative Matters web page at the end of this. You will find information there. For those of you who do not wish to donate to this Forum you can use a free Photo hosting website, like Photobucket, upload your pictures there and post the link on the Pictures Too! Thread in the Little Birds Forum. That will be a thread only for pictures of your beautiful Tbirds. Use other parts of the Little Birds Forum for technical matters. We love seeing pictures, so show us your Little Birds! All new Little Bird members are asked to read and adhere to our Rules of Conduct for this Forum. They also will be found on this link. Welcome aboard and now let's put this Forum to good use!

Thanks to a donor unknown to me, simplyconnected just provided me with information on the Little Bird "Teapot" Carb! I just added a PDF file to the Technical Resource Library! Check them out! The link is always below my signature.

There is one thing I need... For the time being, I am acting as the Moderator of this Forum. I need some of you who are Little Bird owners to step up and replace me as a Moderator for this Forum. You can email me, call me, or send me a Private Message. We really need someone who knows their Little Birds and can do a good job of moderating this Forum.

Welcome, all 55-7 Birders! This is great!

I have been on the Classicbirds mailing list from Yahoo for several years and quickly appreciated what a terrific group of car people you are. There is a deep seated dedication to the cars, helping one another, attention to detail and going the extra yard to do the job right.

There is also strength in numbers. Many of the things we all work on are independent of particular car. Ignitions are ignitions, good chrome plating is that, brakes are brakes and so on.

Finally I nominate Joe Johnston to be Moderator!

best wishes

John

I, for one, think this is a good move.

This is a great bunch of folks and I see some of them on the Y-Block forum also so I know there is a depth of knowledge here that will be beneficial to all.

I am on here every day anyhow so now I can kill "two birds" with one stone.

Thanks to all

Thanks, Jim! One of the reasons we decided to open a Forum to Little Bird owners is because, after checking, I found we have about 20 Little Bird owners who also own bigger Tbirds. We thought why should our Little Bird owners have to leave our Forum to go to another Forum, when we can cover their interests here. That was a major factor in making the decision to include Little Birds, finally.. We do need a Moderator who knows Little Birds. I do not have that knowledge, never having owned one, but always admiring them. If anyone is interested, please contact me ASAP. First come, first served! We can have more than one for that matter.

Cool

I would like to thank Ray and all for starting up our new babybird forum and hopefully have a moderator soon. Also would encourage that our new babybird members participate in this forum ( and others ) to continue to make this site one of the best on the planet.

Just in the nick of time! I have been wheelin' and dealin' for a '55. Just about to close the deal on this car I spotted 5 years ago while on a business trip. If everything goes well in the next day or so, I should have it in my driveway by the 14! I will share details and more of my excitement when I have title in hand!

Default Welcome 1955-'57 Thunderbirders!

I just found out that the donor of the information on the Little Bird "Teapot" carb came from Richard ~ 1960_430_AU, from Down Under! Thank you, Richard. Those of you who own Little Birds, if you have more technical material on restoring them, send it to me and I will start adding it to our Technical Resource Library so others can access it. Much of the information that is in the TRL is general in nature and will apply to Little Birds just as it does to other Tbirds and Full Sized Fords. What are lacking is Little Bird specific technical information.
