Oh, yes it was hot. Even as we gathered at the World of Speed at 8:30 AM you knew it was going to really get hot. Never the less we had about 15 Thunderbirds show up for our event. My estimate is that we had close to 25 club members there.I doubt if anyone counted but there were probably close to 500 cars there in total. They ranged from antiques, to muscle cars, to special interest and everything in between. Gary Coe had arranged for us to have a tour of the Muscle Car Display that is the current feature on display. We had a little time to view other areas. After that we drove less than a mile to Terry's Kustom shop to take a look at Gary's resto-mod 1955 Thunderbird. There are several photos of it below. The engine is a 2014 5L (302) crate motor. You might notice it is a very tight fit. I failed to ask but I would imagine that the transmission is a Ford AOD. What little you can see of the frame quickly tells you it is not a Ford frame. It is custom built. Also notice the number of U-Joints in the steering shaft. Two of the photos show Gary test fitting a side molding. Once they fit correctly they will be chromed. He is planning a 2016 Ford blue on it. Those with a sharp eye will notice that it has a 1957 dash in it. Upon leaving the shop the majority of the group crossed the Canby Ferry and went to the Stone Cliff Inn for lunch. When you see him next tell Gary thanks for setting this up. Also thanks to Jim Sweet for his photos.
