So here's the story, back around 2004 or 2005 I was at the end of my lucrative manual labor career and was getting ready to make a change. I had purchased this 71 ford Thunderbird Hardtop a few years previous and, after a few years of being unable to work on it, it had degraded till the point it wasn't fit to be used in my new career. so it was parked. Now, after a few years, I am able to pull it back outta the tree line and attempt to resurrect it. This blog will follow along with the progress from rust bucket hoopty to a (once again) nice ride.

'Bird spends some 'outside time'

Green grass courtesy of spring rain and sun
The front bumper once again reflects the ground in front of the car instead of the floor of my washing porch..

I put a charge on the battery and went for a drive around town a bit.. the bird squaked a little when I was leaving the gas station so I knew it was happy to be out of it's cage.

I guess the next thing, after I put in the other things I picked up at Andersens (couple of defroster vents... fan shround) would be to do some rust repair on the body.. interior mostly... I'm thinking about driving it around town to body shops to find out what they would charge for a little patch work....
