YAK Car Pic of the Day

'66 Thunderbird Town Landau, North Tonawanda, N.Y.

If you driving through North Tonawanda, you may pass the driveway where I saw this Silver Rose 1966 Ford Thunderbird Town Landau. It has, as the brochure describes it,  a “distinguished new roof covered in tailored vinyl.” If it happens to be backing out of said driveway as you’re passing by, be careful. With that huge blind spot where most cars have a rear side window, the driver just might not see you. Nice car, although I’m not so sure about those hubcaps — they look like they’re from a ’67 — can’t fool me! The 1966 Ford Buyer’s Digest shows a list price of $4551.89 — apparently they were watching every penny back in 1966.
