Due to some unexpected financial expenses, we may have to sell the Bird(among other things). I placed an ad on ebay to test the market. I'm hoping that things work out OK, and we're able to keep it. If we do end up having to sell it, I'm going to pretty picky about who I sell it to, as I want to be sure that it goes to a good home.

Burny Orange on e-bay

John:

When I first saw the "burnt orange" T-Bird" on e-bay, I knew that it was your car, especially with the bright color and T-Bird hubcaps.

Sorry about the financial challenges that have driven into your driveway. Hope you can overcome them and retain your wife's beautiful Bird.

Things are really slow on e-bay for our 77-79 Birds. Even the nicest, low mileage Birds stir up little activity. It is the same with the entire T-Bird market, regardless of what years. Few people are buying and many are trying to sell.

All the best to you.
Tim

Thanks Tim,
I'm hoping to be able to keep the Bird, because it's a really nice car, it's fun to drive, and it looks cool. I know that the market for 77-79 Birds on ebay isn't very good right now. I just figured that would be my best chance at finding just the right buyer, maybe like someone who bought one new back in '79 and was looking to buy one like it all these years later. Financially, things are pretty bad right now. It just seems like the cost of everything keeps going up, but my wages aren't keeping pace with the price increases on everything.
-John
