1950's Ford Thunderbird

Unbelievably pristine. I'm only sorry the photos don't do it justice.

One of my readers, Carolina Linthead, informed me there's a great song about this car. I looked it up on YouTube and Indeed it is a great song. The YouTube of the song is below the jump.

Dear CW,
LOL! No, the last car I had was a battered pickup truck. Then I moved to the city and started taking the bus.

Every once in awhile, some great car parks in my neighborhood, and I get a shot or two.

Isn't it gorgeous??
Thanks for writing in!

Beautiful! Reminds me of Marc Cohn's song, "Silver Thunderbird":

Don't gimme no Buick
Son you must take my word
If there's a God in heaven
He's got a Silver Thunderbird
You can keep your El Dorados
And the foreign car's absurd
Me I wanna go down
In a Silver Thunderbird

Dear C.L.,
Well, you got me to searching. And yes, it is such a great song I added it to the post!

Thanks for sharing.

Wow...a '57 T-Bird with a "continental" package on the rear bumper...whatta find!

Those little "doors" on th front fenders are the "air-conditioning" in *260* air:
(2 windows down, 60 MPH)
Or in this case, two VENTS open...ROFL!

And from the pictures, it DOES look pretty "cherry".

Well done.
Thanks for sharing.
Stay safe out there.

Very nice! One of the nicest parts of summer is that everyone's cool rides come out to play.

Thanks for sharing!

Dear The Observer,
You're right--these cars just started popping out of nowhere.

I have some shots of a Cadillac Bonneville that looks to be 50's or early 60's that I will post later. It's not as pristine, but holy smoke!
