      Wow, impressive list 2K2BIRD. I also find it fun to keep account of where I've been, such as 44 states (but not in the 'bird) but nothing as extensive as your places.

        I'm here too. 184,000 miles and have done all that 2k2bird has done. We've done most of it together.
        Unbelivable TBN trips including ALL of the lower 48 States plus 9 Canadian Provinces, 8 European Countries, 3 Caribbean Countries, Countless National Parks and have attended well over 100 TBN Events since 2001 and counting. Best of all ... fabulous friends.

          Still here, took delivery of our 2002 on December 7, 2001 after waiting almost 1 year after putting in our order. I guess ours is considered low mileage as it now has 109,147 miles on it. Still runs strong. Just do not drive it as much as we did in the past 20 years.

              We still have our 2002, 194,000 miles. It has been around a lot of the states but not like Paul, David, and Bill. It also hasn't seen much use for over a year now as the tranny is on its last legs. We also still have our 2005. It runs nice with over 124,000 miles.

                We tried to get a new one back in 04 but just a few months later July 05, I found a 04 Merlot with only 2500 miles. We've been to lots of places with her and she now has just over 90,000 miles and runs strong and looks great. Lynda drives it as her daily driver now but we still travel some in her.

                    Since these retro TBirds are now 15 years old at the newest (based on model year), any original/first owner probably has a few years on themselves as well. That being the case also means you are probably accused of having 'moments' every now and then. The purpose of this group is to assist during those moments by allowing you to proudly respond in the affirmative when addressed with the question... "are you in some kind of fog?' You now can say.....

                    "Why yes! I am in a FOG (First Owners Group)"

                    If you are the original/first owner of the TBird(s) and you still have it please sign-up...
