Hello fellow Thunderbirder!

Since you are reading this you must be like me and share an interest in Ford’s most iconic model, the Thunderbird! You may like the classic version from ’55 or bought a ’66 Flairbird brand new. Perhaps you grew up with an ’83 Aerobird in the garage or are enjoying the classic lines and late model comfort with a 2005 Retrobird. Personally, I am a “bookend” Thunderbirder with ’57 and ’03 Thunderbirds. It doesn’t matter what year you like (or even if you own one!) you are part of the Thunderbird family and are welcome here.

Does anyone have any idea where I can get a new headliner board for my 87? I can find the material but not the board. My grandfather had an ASE power sunroof installed when he purchased the car new. They just removed the board and stretched material across the roof. Now it really needs to be replaced. Thanks in advance! ... See MoreSee Less

Finally, I can unvail this very nice wall plaque. I have been working on this for quite some time. It has been a labor of love, and it is my hope you of ITC members will find it pleasing.
This piece will be on display in Carlisle under the ITC tent. You will be allowed to purchase tickets for this piece but you have to be a ITC member. 100% of the proceeds will be split between the Ovarian /Cervical Cancer Society in the name of our very own Debra Paul wife of our beloved secretary Michael Paul.
I am in hopes of making alot of money for this dreadful cancer.
So I ask that when deciding on whether to buy a ticket, please be generous.
Thank you.
If you are not going to be able to attend the Convention in Ft. Wayne IN don't let that stop you if you would like a chance to win the Wall Plaque just contact me directly and I will make sure you name in in the cookie jar😃.
God bless, hope to see you soon.

Here is what my Tbird and I did for Appreciation Day. Drove it to Stanford University, Palo Alto, Ca and parked it at the main quad for a couple of hours. Tons of students, tourists, locals and professors were enjoying themselves admiring this special design by Ford in the mid 60's. I was there answering questions and feeling really lucky to have it all for myself. I expanded many people's horizons today in relation to our Thunderbirds and their stories. ... See MoreSee Less

Today we're saying a fond farewell to the 1964 Magic Skyway Thunderbird from the 1963-64 World's Fair and the1986 Zimmer Quick Silver that were on loan here. They were enjoyed by thousands of visitors over the past several months but are now on their way back home.
