This is a recent photo of a childhood friend's favorite car. It was taken at a diner in Eagle, WI where people gather to show off their classic cars. Does anyone know the model & year of this convertible hardtop? BTW, it has a red interior and an unbelievably smooth ride.

Moe, I don't have a favorite car myself but your mention of the Karmann Ghia really brings back fond memories. A college roommate had one and I've started arguing with myself about where we went in that car. I loved my 1970 Maverick but I'm not obsessed like my friend with his classic Fords.

I don't know a lot about cars but I think it is a Ford Thunderbird probably early 60's .

'97 Miata, which I'm still driving, though the '86 Acura Integra I used to have was close.

You may be right. I was afraid someone here would jump all over me if I guessed wrong--mid to late '50s Fairlane?

But again T-Birds sure bring back memories. I had another friend who had one circa 1970--lots of fun out on the freeway with the radar detector on. I almost didn't open your thread, thought I wasn't into cars.

And the defroster only worked as long as you were moving.

And you could use the scraper on the outside of the windshield from the driver's seat.

And you only really needed the clutch for first and reverse.

2000 Miata LS... (Mine's green, but I don't have pics online right now.)


However, if I can ever get this other darn thing assembled, this may change...
