Early Birds Magazine Article --- January / February 2011 Issue
5 PSEB Members and their spouse drove The Mother Road in late September and Early October, 2010.  There was 1 '56 T-Bird, 3 '57 T-Bird's and 1 2004 'V-Bird' [a Volvo as the owners '57 broke down with a collapsed rear spring in Seattle].  After 23-25 different hotels rooms on 23 -25 different nights and 6500 miles, we made it back to Seattle.  The trip went from Seattle to Chicago to the Santa Monica Pier and back to Seattle.  The only casualties were:  a broken generator, which was replaced with an alternator ('56 T-Bird), a power window motor and a thermostat (the same '57), a broken rear spring (another '57), a collapsed rear sprint (another '57 and they took the V-Bird), and a muffler/header crack (another '57).  There was some damage done to the cars, a hit and run in the parking lot in Amarillo, and some apparent vandalism (an attempt to steal the T-Bird Logo) in Oklahoma.  Not bad for almost a month on the road.  You can read all about it in the Early Bird Magazine.

Early Bird Magazine Article  --- March / April 2009 Issue
Lead Article by Gordon Thorne (Page 10 of the CTCI Mar/Apr) outlined the events our club in 2008.  The webmaster particularly enjoyed the photo of the Starmist Blue '57 (License Plate:  IMSMILN).  Just like the days with the car was new, who wants to sit next the window when you can sit next to your guy.  Unfortunately, no 'neckers knob', but she knows how to shift when the driver works the clutch. . . . .    For more information see CTCI Early Birds.
