      • Do you suppose Tommy still owns his Bird? Or did we shame him into selling it??

          Who would buy it? You could spend a year removing the stick-on junk.

          • Getting back to the challenge at hand. I don't have a picture of them signing my car, but our car has been signed by Nancy Gioia, Chief Engineer, Doug Gaffka, Chief Designer, and Jim Youngs, Project Manager. Nancy has signed our car 3 times! Both she and Doug signed it at Motown Thunder. Jim Youngs signed it at Thunder and Good Virbrations. A technician at our local dealership managed to wipe them out by dripping oil on them while doing an oil change. Nancy signed it again at the 60th Anniversary Event in Dearborn. I think Skip took a picture when she was signing it then, but he never sent it to me. This one got smudged and eventually removed when I was cleaning under the hood.

            Finally, she signed it again at the Big Teasy in New Orleans. I've managed to preserve this one so far. All 3 times she was very generous with her time with everyone that wanted their cars signed. She is a very gracious lady. She also signed the picture below for me as well. You may recognize it as being from the large Canadian brochure that has the same pictures as the metal porthole dealership book.

            Picture of Nancy when she checked out our trunk after she signed the car for the second time and the picture below:

                  Don't know what the "rusty bar" is but it's not connected to the wheel, just an optical illusion since the picture is "flat".

                  NOW for my signing pics.

                  IMG_5732Finney Dots Car (Small).JPG FT Finny on the Skunk works Thunderbird team pre 1999 signing the Inca in 2007. Skunk works team started the Thunderbird project rolling before it was turned over to the designers and engineers. btw, he was there taking the place of Nancy Gioia, Chief Engineer of the Thunderbird Project as she had to cancel out at the last minute. Someday I might get her signature on my 02 blue.
                  IMG_5728doug Gaffka dot's car (Small).JPG Doug Gaffka - Chief Designer, signing the Inca in 2007
                  100_8286_640.JPG Jim Youngs - on the Thunderbird team design years prior to 2002. In 2002 He became the Thunderbird Project Manager overseeing everything about the Thunderbird production. Signed this at Thunder Fever TBN event in 2005. He also has his signature on the Inca Gold, signed in 2009 while we were visiting the private museum that hosts the preproduction test supercharged Thunderbird that actually works which he was intimately involved in it's production. btw the test car is red.

                  btw, I have a signing photo of Bill Green's car and Dino's car, and a couple of others. I do have Paul in the photo with Bill Green's car and Paul's next to it.

                      That's Doug Gaffka and since I'm paying attention, that's probably my car. Did you take your bra off that weekend? Hmmm, better put Inspector Clouseau on this.

                              • I'm not inspector Clouseau BUT, yes, that is your car Paul. You have a sunscreen in the window. B ill's has a razor back red piggy on his dash. HERE"s Bill's car and Bill and you are obviously in the pic. IMG_5725 Bill Greens car(Small)Doug Gaffka.JPG

                                I'd have more pics but with two celebs signing, couldn't do them all and still get both pics for my car.
