This is the emblem on my TBird, notice that it is a solid piece.

This is the emblem on E-Bay, notice the seam where it opens to unlock the trunk.

Notice the lock mechanism, The one on my car does not have it.


April 17, 2005 Air Show at Holloman AFB, Alamogordo, NM  I have two of the Thunderbirds pilots, #2 Major Rusty Keen, Left Wing and #3 Major Brian D. Burns, Right Wing,  in the 1960 Thunderbird.   A special thanks to Jim Talbert and Damian Orchard of the Alamogordo Mustang Club for getting me in.


There were other Thunderbirds driving the Thunderbird pilots. The 1st one is a Baby Bird driven by Jim Talbert, the 2nd one is a Square Bird driven by me, and the 3rd is a Flare Bird driven by Jack Partick.


These are some of the Mustangs displayed at the Air Show.  Do you see one car that seems out of place?

The 1960 Thunderbirds first show.


I'm holding my Grandson, Milo and this is #3 Major Brian D. Burns, Right Wing, USAF Thunderbirds.

Thursday (10/28/04) we were downtown where they are filming a movie "Glory Road" about Don Haskins and the 1966 Texas Western College (UTEP) Basketball team's road to winning the NCAA Championship. 

It was like going back to High School with all the old cars lining the street and all the extras dress just like we dressed back then.  Yes the TBird will be in the movie along with the 1960 Ford Pickup.

Downtown El Paso

Courtney and Milo with the TBird

They gave up around midnight and went home, I was there until 4:00 am


This Thunderbird has been stored for 20 years. I keep telling myself that we are not restoring this T-Bird, we are making it a daily driver.

I get a lot of emails wanting to know if I will sell the car.  The answer is yes I will sell it, but I will not give it away.  These cars go for $38,000 plus if it is showroom see www.nada.com and add for AC.  Well mine is not showroom, but it is close.  If you are interest in buying this car I will take not a cent under $32,500.
