Thunderbird Cyber Nest


The Classic/Vintage Thunderbird web site went on-line in June, 1995. It was developed and is maintained by Jerry Wotel of Tahoe Vista, California, to establish a focal point for the 1955 through 1966 Ford Thunderbird enthusiast on the world wide web. In August, 1996 the site was expanded to include the 1967 through 1982 years, and in November 1999, the years 1983 through 1997 were added, and in 2000 the 2002+ model years were added.

The domain was established in December 1996 and this site, as currently configured, was developed. This site is constanlty being expanded and improved to offer the T-Bird enthusiast pertinent information to assist in their enjoyment and restoration of their car.

Complementing this web site to provide a dynamic source of information exchange, are nine electronic mailing lists, focusing on

  1. Classicbirds, (1955-1957) T-Birds
  2. Squarebirds, (1958-1960) T-Birds
  3. Bulletbirds, (1961-1963) T-Birds
  4. Flairbirds, (1964-1966) T-Birds
  5. Glamorbirds, (1967-1971) T-Birds
  6. Bigbirds, (1972-1982) T-Birds
  7. Aerobirds, (1983-1987) T-Birds
  8. Superbirds, (1988-1997) T-Birds
  9. Retrobirds, (2002+) T-Birds

These mailing lists have been recognized by the Ford Thunderbird Club Center, operated by the Ford Motor Company, as the first electronic-mail based Thunderbird organization in their registry. Your subscription to any or all of these mailing lists are encouraged.
