    Well, such is life.
    As was mentioned by moparandfomoco in the 65 Galaxie thread:
    We all love to daydream about great cars or trucks we'd like to have, and that's part of what makes life enjoyable. But we all have a reality that we live with. And being happy with what you have is one of the keys to a happy life.

    Wow. That is impressive. This collector certainly seems to have good taste in incredibly nice Thunderbirds.

    Do we need to start a Thunderbird go-fund-me page Marshall? Lol. I thought the same thing, pretty well priced.

    I first met the collector/seller in 1992 through a HMN ad. Super nice guy, and very protective about who gets these really special cars that he has been holding onto since the 1970s.

    The sedan buddy in the pics is on Hemmings blog "find of the day" if you scroll down past the garbage ads to page 2.
