Car: 1988 Thunderbird Turbo Coupe
1988 Thunderbird Turbo Coupe was way ahead of its time. The cars of the day were boxy and square, yet the Thunderbird was aerodynamic and sleek. This proved itself on the Tracks of Nascar by dominating the series and causing GM and others to make changes to their lineup. It was technologically superior to many production cars with a 4 cylinder turbo engine, 4 wheel disc brakes w/ABS and a computerized ride control suspension. It is the epitome of luxury/performance with stock top speed of 145 MPH while being able to get 30 MPG.
I'm a rookie at this and just a little older than her (not that there's anything wrong with that!) at age 62, however, we're both aging gracefully. I got my 1965 Thunderbird May of last year/2016 in Los Angeles and we're enjoying our time together. You'll see us cruisin' in N Richland Hills and surrounding. Other than buying this treasure, my first investment as the new owner was some serious engine work this past winter along with a safety check...to date, April 10, 2017, still running with that engine break in motor oil. While we know there are so many after market parts available, my interest is to restore this to as much original as possible and to have everything working, again. The paint job was as already existed and shows some spotty failure, but, a new coating is not likely in the near future. While she looks pretty descent, she still needs some work, however, now mostly cosmetic...finding those acceptable original parts at a descent cost can be challenging but rewarding. We've only participated in 2 shows with the first on March 18 and 2nd showing was with our host on April 8. We were fortunate to have won each show with the restoration/under construction award. My goal is to get out of the restoration class. I'll continue to look forward to meeting car show hosts and fellow car enthusiasts and their prides...I'm certainly proud of mine. For you seasoned relic owners, please feel free to share your critique and suggestions if you see us showing...I'm always eager to learn.

2003 f-150 Boss 5.4
This truck is an extremely rare version of the F-150. Only about 500 Boss 5.4s were made in 2003; half were yellow and half were orange. I found this truck in Calgary, Canada with only 15,500 miles on it. It has the rare optional supercharger and even had the original tires! Boss 5.4s were sold new through Ford dealers as an aftermarket package. It is frequently confused with a Lightning, but there were ten times as many Lightnings produced. It appears that Roush produced some Boss 5.4 models in 2007.
Owner: Justin Stafford Truck: 2011 Ram R/T
I bought her brand new in 2011 when I returned from Iraq, and it has been nothing but smiles ever since. She is a 2011 Ram R/T, a special edition of Rams that came with 4:10 gears, high stall torque converter, and 22" wheels. Dodge had only built 837 of these beast, and out of those only 119 where flame red. What I have done is,she been lowered 2/4 with belltech springs and shocks, Custom painted interior and engine bay, Kooks Long tube headers 1 3/4 with high flow cats, QTP electric cutout, Sonnax line booster, and a Hemifever custom tune.

Car:1969 Buick Skylark Gran Sport 400
This was Buicks answer to the GTO. Just completed a full frame off restoration with no dollars being spared. Replaced floor from the firewall through the trunk and both rear quarters. The entire chassis was powder coated as well as the top frame; the radiator support and the inner wheel wells. The interior was changed to metallic parchment, added both the consolette with tach for the shifter and shorty console between the seats. The engine was bored .30 over and fully balanced. M21 was installed with 3.42 posi rearend. The engine was produced originally with 340 HP and 440 torque. All the chrome was redone and the stainless finely polished. Lots of options were added either before or during the restoration. Such as power windows and door locks; power trunk opener; right hand mirror; door edge guards; AM/FM radio and pin striping.
Buick only made 55 Air Conditioned 4 Speed convertibles.
Although this car didn't come from the factory that way,
it is a fine example of what one would look like.

Cami is 2013 2LT/RS. She is my first muscle car - I got her in May of 2014. I loved her just as she was.. I thought.. LOL - - Then I learned about modifications you can do to cars. I didn't just want someone to do that to her - I wanted to learn how to do it all myself. So as long as it is not ART related - - I put my own hands to work. It's been 2 years of learning... and now I'm hooked. I help rung a 5thGenGirlz group on Facebook - I'm always giving advice to other ladies on how to do their own mods... I think you can appreciate your car more when you know that what you are looking at and driving every day - was made possible by your own 2 hands.

This is Sneaky Pete
1997 Dodge Viper GTS
It has been my dream car for a little over 20 years. Picked it up last year and have been doing mostly routine maintenance to bring it up to present day condition. In addition to a bunch of little things, I have also done M&M headers, Belanger cat back exhaust, tune, and upgraded brakes. Hopefully adding a blower in the near future. The car already had 4.10 gears when I got it. It also has a pretty choppy cam from the factory (708 cam) and forged internals common to the older Vipers, so I frequently get asked about the engine build. Follow me on Instagram @ol_roc to see updates, mods, maintenance, shows, etc. If you see this snake at a local show, feel free to approach me to talk about/see the car. Just look for the yellow headlights.
