My '68 T-bird

      The thunderbird is a legendary creature in certain North American indigenous peoples' history and culture. It is considered a supernatural being of power and strength. It is especially important, and frequently depicted, in the art, songs and oral histories of many Pacific Northwest Coast cultures, but is also found in various forms among some peoples of the American Southwest, East Coast of the United States, Great Lakes, and Great Plains.

      The fifth generation of the Ford Thunderbird is a large personal luxury car that was produced by Ford for the 1967 to 1971 model years. This fifth generation saw the second major change of direction for the Thunderbird.

      The introduction of the Ford Mustang in early 1964 had, however, challenged the Thunderbird's market positioning. It, like the Thunderbird, was a small, two-door, four-seater with sporting pretensions, but it was more affordable. The Thunderbird's sales suffered. Ford's response was to move the Thunderbird upmarket.

      The 1967 design was radically different from what came before. Ford's stylists delivered a radical shape that in many ways anticipated the styling trends of the next five years. A gaping wide "fishmouth" front grille that incorporated hidden headlights was the most obvious new feature

      The 1968 Thunderbird saw the introduction of the new 385 series big-block 429 cu in (7.0 L) V8 engines.

      New Thunder for the Bird:
      Powerful Thunder Jet 429 has 360 horses, more power than ever before—to flash you from where you are, to where you're going!

      New "Floating Caliper" Power Front Disc Brakes were an improvement over 1967. They were fast cooling, simpler in design, easier to service, and provided a high resistance to fade.

      Never before had the Thunderbird had such powerful and dependable brakes. Automotive pundits of the time rated the T-Bird's brakes as among the very best available on any car, regardless of make, model, or price.
