The shiny yellow one is how it looked new in 71.
The old beat up rusty one is how it looks now.

  1. Great models. I had a hard time realizing they were models.

    Any relation between that vehicle and a Thunderbird was purely coincidental. Step One of the long dark 70s for Fix Or Repair Daily.

    Of course, the new one is a "Thunderbird" only if you're a designer young enough to have no clue what a thunderbird ever was. Which is why I think you don't see them any more.

  2. Cool ! always love your beaters.

  3. The bane of all too many Fords: RUST... and you got every place where they get it. Great job!

  4. Cool.
    i used to watch the series all the time. Nice job

  5. You've got a nice touch with the beat-up rusty look.
