1957 Ford Thunderbird

Really nice to have car guys in my inner circle.

Here is a modified Thunderbird built by a local acquaintance. Engine built by a real close friend and dynoed/tuned by another close friend.

People have varying hobbys/habits, mine have wrist worn time-telling jewelry as around #3 on the list. We all have our thing.



Oh, and here is the engine builder's 1963-1/2 factory 427ci four speed Galaxie

Not a Ford guy but loved the 63 1/2. Ford has had a lot of good looking cars IMHO.

Wanted to buy a showroom condition 57 Bird with hard top for $1,500 around 1960 but couldnt swing the financing. LOL. Parents were against it because of the insurance.
NRPI here.

That’s awesome

Firearms, timepiece, and car/boat/plane interests tend to cluster in people, seems like.

My father was totally into the T Birds and then when he went family man it was square birds

I have toddler memories with mom rocketing around in one

Later my first car, aged 14 was a depleted square bird I was reviving

Pure automotive heritage. Way cool what they’ve done with it.
