Car Watching - 1959 Ford Thunderbird

 What did we find while driving over to Grandma and Grandpa's house today?  A 1959 Ford Thunderbird.  Eli and I jumped out of the car and took some photos.
 This 'Square Bird' is obviously a driver, but it's still in darn fine condition for being nearly 60 years old.
 59's had the 'Thunderbird' FE V8, in most cases the 352 four barrel rated at 300 horsepower.  My Dad's 1966 Galaxie had the same engine years later, only I'm sure his had a two barrel carb.
The whole reason to for me to jump out of the car and snap these photos was this view:  the rear end.  Those tail lights, the long trunk, the cool wrapped bumper...yep.  1959 was a very good year.
