The Thunderchicken on a sunny day in April. See how happy it is?
This is the internal motion-sensing lighting I created on the ceiling of my car's carport (2002).
A young Michael looks proudly over his new Thunderbird, now resting in the front yard.
This was taken about a week after purchase in early 1998.
A questionable parking job, taken outside of apartment #3 in Seattle. Summer of 2002.
Sometimes at night I pretend I can sit in my old car and just drive, but I can't. This was the last time I sat in the driver's seat.
Another shot of its last live performance. Here it is blocking a lane of AM Canadian commuters.
I bought this on eBay for a reasonable price. Unfortunately it had no information on the perpetually plagued electrical system.
This is West 12th Ave and Hemlock St in Vancouver, BC. My car's final resting point. A good parking job, considering I was rolling in backwards with no power.
High school Photoshop fun #1.
This one was taken a while later in 1999. Not much had visibly changed on the driver's side.
Winter of '99, after the mud and dirt of the fall. My Thunderchicken loved to roll in the mud.
Always a ham for that camera!
This is the entry I wrote in my trusty notepad to remind me where my car was located while in Vancouver.
Another early photo, this one displaying its virgin front grill.
Baby got back.
A side shot. Thanks to Greg Pesche for the replacement hub cap. Sorry, it got towed away too.
A shot of my car's interior. You can see backed up traffic in the side-view mirrow - a consequence of forgetting when the SeaFair parade was.
These are the original keys to my old buddy. A fine car, indeed.
