Well, I went to the junkyard today with some success.



There were a lot of T-birds and Cougars out there.

Best of all, these were all free. =)

I heard the blue feet were somewhat rare, so I picked them up. Along with a bunch of others. (One from a '79 Thunderbird)

So, anybody want some? :p

I see the blue feet ones everywhere. Its the all silver ones that I can't find. Were the 96/97 cars that you grabbed the emblems off of V8 cars by any chance?

They aren't rare by any means. Every Bird I've seen has blue feet, even these:



No, this is NOT a photoshop. I have seen these in person.

Strangely, all the cars I picked these from were V8 cars. There was only one and it was a base '90 which I didn't get anything from.

^Those are called boobs. :p

EDIT: Boobies, same thing.

A lot of standard, some XR7s and v8s around. I saw a nice one I wanted to take emblems from but I got distracted from the SC beside it. :p

I'm in Pensacola, Fl.

Bump, answer? I looked around Ebay but that isn't really reliable. There is a '77 emblem + holder going for $30 and another for $10.

Honestly I think you'd be lucky to get $5 for each one.
