Down on the Street

Celeste and I ran down to El Nopalito in Encinitas Sunday morning to pick up some of their fantastic homemade tortilla chips and salsa.
This Ford Thunderbird Fordor was parked just outside the strip mall, so out came the crappy cameraphone.
I'm pretty sure this one dates to 1967. Like many cars of the era with the feature, the flip-up headlight covers appear to be inoperable. At least they're stuck open.

1967 was the first time the T-bird was available as a sedan. Ford even outfitted the ride with proper suicide doors.

It's pretty cool to see a 43 year-old car still being relied upon for daily driver use. Too bad the window's off the track.
But check out the suicide spinner knob (matching the suicide rear doors). Look closer for Celeste's reflection.
