It is a 1965 Ford Thunderbird and now residing at our home. I could not wait to take it for a spin. I love it.

I think I got a very good deal on it. I don't know that much on pricing an old car, but I knowwhat you get at a used car lot for what I paid for this one, and it aint much.  I just came in from washing it for the first time. There is a lot of chrome on that thing! I need to get some good photos of it cleaned up.

Great car in the snow!  ;)

Kind of a Saturday night, drive-around-the-town-square vehicle.  Looks in fantastic shape for a 48 year old car.  Love the turquoise air filter cover and the two-spoke steering wheel.

I just came in from washing it for the first time.

And tomorrow when you wash it.....and the next day when you wash it......and the day after when you wash it... :)
If it was mine....I'd be cleaning it every day.  ;D

That is just a cool car!
Congrats!!
390?
I had a boss that had one in white. He was doing a head job on it and we had to push it in and out of the garage every day for 3 weeks. One day we decided he needed to be paid back for our troubles so we poured about a quart of ATF down each exhaust pipe. So when he finally put it back together and fired it up it smoked way worse than it did before he took it apart :D :D
