T-Bird Ford Man!

Recommended Posts

51 years ago Arthur Lampitt crashed his 1963 Thunderbird. ( the one that looks like the Corsair ).

Last week in surgery, a 7 inch turn lever signal was removed from his left arm.

Lampitt now 75, is recovering at home.

The accident had broken his hip, drawing attention from his arm, which healed.

A decade or so ago, his arm set off a metal detector.

An x-ray showed a slender object the length of a pencil, but because it caused no pain, he was told to leave it.

A few weeks ago the arm began to hurt, and he decided to have surgery.

He found a collection of old photos of the wreck and noticed that the flicker arm was missing.

Surgery confirmed it, 7 inches long.

Dr Lang said that a protective pocket had grown around it.

you can see it in Fox News or the St Louis Post - Dispatch.

Will Ford give him some old T-bird?

Or will the local dealer give him free services, upon presentation of the flicker lever?
