Stephen Tebo Car Museum

I wanted to share some pictures from a recent visit to a local private car museum. Mr. Tebo has over 400 cars housed here. I was very excited that he has a room devoted to only Thunderbirds! Two fine...

After I had my engine and transmission re-done and broken in I opened it up to 90 mph. She flies, but with those open windows, no window posts and only lap belts you can't feel too safe! I can...

Elvira

Thanks for posting all the great pics. I saw the show and really enjoyed seeing her and the car. It's nice to see someone else enjoy the birds as much as us, and see them get some prime time showing.

No screw

Well my head has the original metal tab, no screw. So I think I can get it on from the front, but it's the springs that are the issue. They are the correct ones, same size as originals. It's just...

Galaxies

Love Robins Galaxie. It's interesting that Ford put the bullet sights on those too. Even the Galaxie scripting looks like the Thunderbird Script. Awesome interior and I like the two tone!

Sorry it's a 1960. The bottom part where the key goes in is still there. The bird emblem and two springs popped off. It's the bird that covers the key hole when not in use. One spring snapped when I...

Is the car drivable now? If It is, then you probably don't have to spend as much. If its not then you could still rebuild that engine. How many miles on it? Either way you will never have that...
