Hi Ray,

Congrats on YellowRose back home!
Are you living in your garage now or do you still find the doorknob of the house sometimes?
Great job to make it your car, enjoy it!!!

(Can't wait to order the 2011 calendar)

It tickles me that you have a one-of-a-kind classic Thunderbird. Congratulations... Very, very nice. Indeed, many stop to look at such a beauty. Keep close tabs on her. Alarms are ok, but I would put a fuel shut-off hidden somewhere. Jumpering the electrical is a lot easier than jumping a fuel line.

How soon before your brake job? Howard Prout is shooting for next weekend or so. - Dave

Nice Ray !!!

You mean . . . you didn't install a roll up door on the side of your house to keep her in the living room? She's outside in a cold garage?


Ha ha ha !!

Thanks for all the nice, cute and funny comments! Much appreciated. Dave, I have a Start Lock installed on the battery. Before I walk away from Rose, I pop the hood, turn the green knob counter clockwise, which takes the power off the electrical system. I can even unscrew it if I want to, put the green knob in my pocket and walk off. She wont start without the knob, or if it is turned off. I also like the idea of a kill switch under the dash somewhere and might pursue that too. Here is some information on the Start Lock, an idea I got from Marco, as I recall.

I will probably start my brake job work this week, or next. I think I am going to drive her to the painter next for him to look over and give me an estimate. Then start the brakes job.

Hi John,

A textual and photo accounting of the interior and trunk work on "YellowRose" can be found on the Technical website listed below, at the request of the members. You will find they are at the end of the list. She started out as a standard black and white interior, and a Casino Cream exterior with a white top. She still has that until I can get her painted later on this Spring. There are plenty of pictures and comments to read on the the two web page, as you follow along with her conversion. I am very pleased with the results, and the comments I am receiving are all very positive. Just click on the link below. Enjoy!
