    There's an ass for every seat I suppose. Just not mine.

    Smokey15 So old that I use AARP bolts.

    From the picture, it looks like it was well executed, but then so should whoever dreamed up that combo.

    it Has been a staple at Thunderbird events for years. There is even a promo model available of it. I have seen photo’s of it actually being used as a DD when first built.

    Flame away, but I actually kind of like it. The front glass on the wagon top matches the T-bird hood scoop nicely, and the angle of the back glass matches the back of the T-bird.

    I'm almost as perplexed to think a Thunderbird had to live to make this. Although, strangely, after staring at it, it is kind of growing on me. From some angles it looks like it could have been born there, from other angles it looks like a modular.

    Carbuncles can also grow on you.

    From the front view it almost makes sense. And you guys are right, it kinda does grow on you like a boil would. It seems it was well put together, but that won't help sell it. It's all about personal tastes, and most people will probably react like everyone here did, revulsion followed by, "I guess so", but the kind of money they're probably going to ask for this thing will scare most people away. I wonder how those dealerships make their money; are there really that many gullible fools with a lot of money burning holes in their pockets out there? If so I have a lot of stuff they can buy...

    Ha! Just had a thought. Lop off the vista cruiser part at the front of the side window slanted pillar and make a Ranchero out of it! THAT would wake me up!

    I'm glad they ran out of beer before they thought of adding wood grain to the sides.
