Something Good happened in Louisville Kentucky!
Just ask me, Lou Morganti!

It was a hot & sunny day on Saturday, August 6, 2010 at the Street Rod Nationals in Louisville, Kentucky and as I walked to the Exhibit Building I spotted the Car of my Dreams! It was a white 1956 Ford Thunderbird, just like the one my employer let me drive when I was seventeen years old! It was even the same color.

Ray Hunter, the owner who was up from Georgia said that the Thunderbird had undergone a complete Body Off Restoration just 2 years ago and I plus several of my Gear-Head friends agreed that the Bird was well done! Then the Crowning Glory Blow came when my wife Regina came walking by and agreed that the Bird was Gorgeous and she really liked it. She only had two words to say about the Bird at this point, BUY IT!
Yes, Dreams Can Come True!
It only has 80,000 miles on it has been restored to its original stock condition. It has a 312 cubic inch V-8 with a 4 barrel. The interior has one bench seat that is covered with two-tone vinyl in red and white. Although I bought this car as a Turn-Key it shines next to my 1932 Ford, 1957 Chevrolet & 1923 T-Bucket, and I plan on taking it out to many shows. It has already won many Trophies and Plaques!
