Aren't you in Seattle? Maybe you should update your location first! ;-)

I figure it I don't update, it will be harder for my ex-wives and 11 kids to find me.
Why spend money on alimony when you can buy a classic car instead!?!

Niiiiiiice Bird. My first car was a 62 Thunderbird (Sandshell Beige). Have fun with your Bird. I like your current name.

Love the car. Every now and then I think I need a car like that, something with character and style! But then I get hit by another Minnesota winter and I think I need a car with traction control and ABS. I guess in my heart I'm just too safe and practical, probably why I drive an Accord.

As far as changing your name, wouldn't that cost you your Tiki Socialite status, or is there a way to change your name and keep your street cred?

I don't know you well enough to make an in-joke, but amazing car, and great name! Even if you sell the riviera, keep the name, as Tiki-Royale said, it's got a nice ring to it!

I've decided to keep my name as tiki-riviera. I think I like it because the name riviera
has many different connotations, more mysterious than Thunderbird.

As for the car, it is such a blast to drive around and people are always giving me the thumbs up
(sometimes the finger). Interesting to note that the car gets the most attention from older ladies,
not the college girls I was hoping for. Maybe it reminds them of dating in high school. My master plan is to move to Hawaii and make a living by renting out the car for sunset drives along the coast....

Nice ride! Sorry about the lack of enthusiasm fron the hot chicks but it's be expected - I'm pretty close to the same model year as your TBird and I don't get the thumbs up from the college girls anymore. But then again, I'm not in showroom condition anymore either

Dogbytes now has the same quandary as me. She just became the proud parent to a very cool 1955 black T-Bird convertible. Guess Dogbytes and I will have to settle who gets the tiki-tbird name in a gentlemanly fashion. Next Sunday at 2:00 pm behind the old
saw mill we will duel with single shot muzzle loading pistols. May the best shot win!
