1957 Ford Thunderbird / Restoring a Bird

Updated on March 12, 2011

I worked on the Thunderbird for three winters. It was at times aggrivating but other times it was great! Restoring is like turning an old man into a teenager again. The year 1957 must have been a time of bliss for drivers. The old car just simply has class. I love the contours of the body and interior.

Everything about the car says, " American." The design is unique and sexy. It is easy to picture a young woman driving the T-Bird down a highway with the top down and a scarf on her head. There is just something about working on an old car. It is a good feeling to see it come alive, piece by piece.
