Default Squarebird birthdays

Itīs 50 years since the Squarebirds shined up our world, and donīt you think it would be a good idea to celebrate our babies with a picture on there birthdays?
Ruth will be 50 the 18īth of May...

Anders yes you are correct that our 58's will turn 50 this year.That's also a great idea of posting pictures on their birthdays. Our 58 is called Maggie " as I bought it for my wife Marg and she turns 50 on August 12th ( while the wife turns 56 in October ) Let's try something new. Everyone that has a 58 ( this being the 50th year ) respond to the anniversary date. That way we will at least see how many 58's are out there.I have a couple of Ford dealerships here interested in doing a promotion with ours in their showrooms. It will of course be in Nov. Dec. Jan & Feb. during the winter months

@Frank58: Please put in a Pic of her then ( as you are already late...)
This thread should be Sticky for at least 3 years...

@Dan: The name Ruth is a "swinglish" play with words, as a Square in swedish is Ruta, and my grandmas name was Rut ( of course the nicest and kindest in the whole world ), must be Ruth then, as this lady comes from US...

Hi Zeppelin!

Congratulations on keeping your Grandpa's Tbird in the family! You are a very fortunate young man to have an all original Bird. I hope you will enjoy it for a long time to come. The Build sheet could be anywhere if it is still in the car. It could be stuck up into the springs of the back seat, or the back of the seat. It has been found under the floor carpeting. Also up under the dash. It has been found under the front seats, or up inside the seats, as a recall. It is a matter of taking time to look for it. As for the white smoke, and the oil drops, I will leave that to the more experienced people on here. The white smoke might just be because it has not been run for awhile, maybe... Good luck with it! You must be the envy of your peers! I am not sure I answered you question though. As to where you find the date the car was built, look on your VIN tag which on a '58 I think is on the column where you open your drivers door, like my '59. There you should see the VIN tag. On that tag, one of the things it tells you is the Date. That number, letter combination is the date it was produced. The letter tells you the Month. A=January, B=February, C=March, D=April, E=May, F=June, G=July, H=August, I was not used because it looked to much like 1, J=September, K=October, L=November, M=December. Now you can figure out what day of the month and which month in 1958 your Bird was born!
