YAK Car Pic of the Day


Here’s one more from the used car lot at Howell Motors Ford in Wrights Corners: a 1978 Ford Thunderbird coupe with the Tu-Tone option and vinyl roof. This looks just like the example in the brochure: Light Jade Glow over Dark Jade Metallic with a Dark Jade vinyl roof. As snazzy as the outside styling was, the colorful interiors were maybe my favorite part of the ’78 T-Bird, especially when compared to today’s cars. There were three T-Bird models for MY 1978: the coupe, Town Landau, and a really tarted-up Diamond Jubilee Edition which came complete with a 22K gold owner’s nameplate. 


I love the blue striped one
