YAK Car Pic of the Day
by Jim Corbran - posted 12:00 am, July 8, 2013
This 1962 Ford Thunderbird is one of many T-Birds spotted around town since summer started. Seeing these old ‘Birds brings back memories of the Beach Boys, who gave the car top billing in their 1964 hit “Fun, Fun, Fun” — at least until her Daddy takes the T-Bird away. The song was supposedly written about a particular girl, but the facts seem to have become muddied over the years. And this makes me wonder: what car would anybody bother writing about these days (besides Lamborghini Gallardos which no one ever sees on the road)? Chevy Spark? Hah! Today’s fun fun fun T-Bird was spotted last week in Sanborn.
