For lovers of Ford Thunderbirds, the Water Wonderland Thunderbird Club has created a three-day event that celebrates the 55th Anniversary of the original model. More than just a car show, the event takes in all that Ford has to offer around its World Headquarters.
Participants were invited to a BBQ at the Henry Hotel, breakfast at the Henry Ford Estate, a photo shoot at the Ford Proving Grounds test track, a parking space in front of Ford World Headquarters and a chance to drive their Thunderbirds inside Greenfield Village. Nearly 300 vehicles were registered for the event, which starts this Thursday, June 24, 2010. People from more than 30 states are bringing their Thunderbirds to the program, including from as far away as California.
Registration is required for the event, but If you didn’t sign up, you can still come admire the Thunderbirds from various eras on Saturday, June 26, 2010, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Ford World Headquarters in Dearborn, Michigan.
To help celebrate, we’d like to hear your Thunderbird story. Click here to share your story with us. Tell us about your Thunderbird, what you’ve done with your Thunderbird or just about any other type of Thunderbird story you want to share with us. You can submit a story with or without a photograph or video. We are planning on posting a follow-up article with photos submitted as well as images from the Return to Dearborn Thunderbird event.
