YAK Car Pic of the Day
by Jim Corbran - posted 12:01 am, September 7, 2012
I was looking through the unused photo YArKives today and came across this 1957 Ford Thunderbird, which I saw three years ago while passing through Irving. Ironically, today I passed another ’57 (in black), but wasn’t able to get a good shot (tomorrow’s another day, and perhaps it will still be there). The 1957s are my all-time favorite T-Birds, and it’s really hard to believe they cost a mere $3,408 when new. Good ones today are selling for 20 times that. Many Thunderbird fans were upset when in 1958 Ford added a back seat, but sales jumped from 21,380 up to almost 38,000 so the bean-counters were right after all.
