1950’s American cars


Blackboard, surfboard & T-bird - three things that draw my life together.  I am the current caretaker for this gorgeous car known as Trixie.  She has a 5 litre (312 cubic inch) V8 motor with two quad barrel carburetors.  She was built to homologate Ford’s fastest car for Nascar racing.  She made 270 horsepower and 120 mph in her day, but like Fad she’s 60 years old and operation at full throttle is no longer recommended.  This is the original colour - Thunderbird bronze - and she’s pretty much in her original condition.
