Ford Thunderbird

#hashtags: #Thunderbird #American Indian #Corvette #Ford

Thunderbird: derived from southwest American Indian lore for a mythical bird glimpsed only briefly in the clouds and responsible for thunder and lightning, a symbol of power, speed and good fortune. After seeing GM's first Corvette falter in popularity and sales, the Ford men set to planning a radically different personal car; all steel body rather than fiberglass, equipped with a new and powerful V-8 rather than a warmed over old fashioned 6-cylinder, roll-up windows with power assist optional rather than plastic side curtains, and a well-fitting cloth top with hard top optional rather than Corvette's clumsy cloth top.
