      If I am not mistaken, the color of the car according to Ford is desert sky blue. Is that correct or am I mistaken. Also, I thought each model year on the Thunderbird run was supposed to have its own unique color and mine, being a 2003, is desert sky blue and bought brand new off the showroom. Your beauty appears to be that same color but is a 2004. Do you see my confusion? Anyway, enjoy that dream car - you could not of done better!

        Steve, If you are talking about Lynnes car, it is a 2004 Vintage Mint Green. Photos sometimes dont reproduce the color well, possibly due to lighting conditions. Also, notice the 7spoke chrome wheels are different from your 2003.

          No, Steve, Lynne has positively got a VMG on her hands. It IS a light color, & perhaps your screen sees it as blue.

                It's a dang great looking car. Me-I'm red green color blind. Never saw a VMG that I didn't think was white.

                  Isn't Blue/Green a type of color blindness? I seem to recall eye tests that used a background of blue dots and a number that was made of green dots. If you couldn't read the number you were blue/green color blind.

                    I'm not too bad with Blue/Green but I have a real problem with certain Blue/Gray shades. BTW, very pretty car Lynne. I would agree with Ron re: cracked/rotted boots. My guess is that over half or more here have the same issue. Unless you are hearing unusual noises or have an after market warranty that covers them why spend $3K.

                      wcoates Tried twice on Ebay and got outbid! Still on the look out:)

                      Just saw a silver TBird a few days back at the local Walmart. He was smart and hung out by the Living Hope church parking lot and avoided the hustle and bustle of cars/people. Was going to walk over to speak with him after I loaded my groceries but he took off before I had the chance. (Dang.) Also, saw a Thunderbird Blue zipping south down Meacham Road toward the Elgin/Ohare (390) yesterday. Top was down and he was cruising!!

                      Yes. I believe AZTB is spot on that the NM series of evening black would come in next after the Inca Gold. 4LOWBIRDS+8 has great taste in cars

                      FUNDERMAN Sorry, I misspoke the color is Desert Sky Blue not Robins Egg. I see what you mean though, depending on the lighting they look similar sometimes. I also know sometimes people may refer to the VMG as sea foam green.

                          @BLACKBEAUTY I was wondering about the tail lights. So, it is an add on... Love the look too. Wish I could get a hold of the headlight option. Saw it on Thunderbird Specialties for a whopping 179 dollars. Thought that was too pricey for a couple of pieces of bling. Bought some chrome wrap to play with. Might consider making my own but not sure if it would work since there is no lip on the headlight bezel toward the front. A project for another day

                                Harry, VMG is a 2004 color. Is it true all VMGs were built in 2003?
