Guys I had an offer that I could not refuse come up on a 16x65 foot RV storage facilty that I owned in Havasu and my place will only hold so many so I am letting a few go.
I really love these cars and have a wierd attachment to them but they must be kept in a nice environment so I have to do something with them.
This baby is a 1968 Thunderbird rotisserie restored even though it was very low miles.
429 Thunderjet engine all rebuilt with forged pistons and all fully balanced to the gram, I had the trans done at the same time, lots of smiles and thumbs ups when driving it around.
All new glass, all rubber on the car everywhere is new all seals etc as well as window motors and switches, ac has been converted to R134.
I,ike it and it is fun but I can't drive em enough anyway.
Thought the car guys on here might like a peek into my collection.
The Wharehouse pics is in Vegas where I consigned it last month and if ot doesn't sell for what I want it is EXCELLENT free storage LOL.

Nice one bro. My buddy's daily driver when we were teenagers was his father's 1970 Mercury Cougar, we would fit the whole crew in that love boat!

$4500 put into the rebuild all balanced, blueprinted and forged pistons with a higher performance cam and free flow heads in stock form it was 360hp rated conservatively from Ford this is the only one that I never dynoed because I did not feel I needed to as it is not a "hot rod" per se but the builder put it at 460hp and 520 torque based upon his previous builds with these big block Ford engines and this type of upgrades it and ALL of my cars can safely be run on 92 octane pump gas, so maybe some power loss but convenience and usefullness on a daily basis was and is a priority to me.
