Huge Project — this car is approximately 800 hours into a full rotisserie restoration. the pictures are just a few of a full photo documentation of the project. they show me cutting out some rusted sections, fabricating new pieces, and welding and blending into lace. I have done this on every inch of the car. all sheet metal has been replaced, such as floors, inner and outer rocker panels floor braces, door skins inner quarter panels and more. a labor of love.

Its A Great Fun Car To Own. And To Drive Around — Love the car , it is my hobby since I'm retired , like to see some thing as beautiful as the Thunderbird comes back to like , almost as nice as day one . Hate to Part with it if some one should wants to buy it , I'm doing another one right now , it's a standard shift . 70% done on it .

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

55 Tbird — 200 Hp moves this heavy 50's "sportscar" better than I expected. this base model could use power options but it stops and steering isn't bad once it's moving. it is a comfortable criuser . Handleing is typical of 50's cars. Attracts a lot of attention and is nostalgic ,illiciting stories, which add to the enjoyment of owning it

Retro T-bird Ok, But No Classic By Luger

The retro-Birds are nice looking and average performers, but they miss being either a luxury car or a sports car. The trunk is so shallow that there is little storage. Ford got the retro part right,... Read More

Rocketship By exposures

Takes off like a rocket, there's a reason why they put these engines in police cars. Bought this new in 97 and the body style still looks great. The factory spoiler completes the look. Maintenance is... Read More
