My grandfather drove to Detroit to pick up the first 1955 two seat Thunderbird. I have pictures of him in that car. When the retro 2 seat Thunderbirds were introduced by Ford I knew I had to have one. I got it in the fall of 2002.
Really enjoyed the car. Joined several Thunderbird clubs and we drove around the country going to various events. The car was a Garage Queen and never went out unless the weather was fine and it was stored for the winter. I sold it in 2013. I went to the University of Illinois and taught there for 38 years and their name is the Illini. A short way to say Thunderbird is just "Bird". Illinibird was born as the car's name (& my handle).
