    Hey Scumdog (Tom) I was out at the Bird Nest today getting a headlight nob and guess what they had sitting there on the shelf... Yup, a 66 thunderbird plastic model kit that can be built either as a convertable or a Landau. The model is made by AMT, he had 2 original release that were real spendy but he also had a several re-issues of the same model at $15.00 each. These are model kits that you would put together. His were just like this:

    The original release showed a landau top car on the top of the box but the re-issue showed the convertable, he was nice enough to open one to make sure it could be built both ways and sure enough it had the top in there.
    If you are interested, here is their website for contact info;

    It is so nice having two thunderbird parts suppliers within 20 minutes of me
    Hey chewrocks, great news, thanks for that, I'll chase up on one of those models and paint it to match mine.

    Great how those that can help make that extra effort to do so, thanks again.
