This sign that once welcomed people to Whiteland that was removed a while back was presented to the Gliddens for their shop. Pretty cool and emotional day for everyone.

Lots of info gleaned from internet searches and Fairlane Club of America. Cowl marking located during a restoration
I've got additional information in relation to the Lincoln 430 transmission that was adapted to the FE with a special bellhousing and subsequent upgrading failed to improve it. Irrespective of this the convertor stall was OEM and the thorn in it's side (Achilles heel) when compared to MOPAR torque flights
Does anyone have the remainder of the article, it'd be interesting to see DST undertaking modifications?

Portland Oregon T-bolt racer Bill Ireland in the near lane.
I'm sure this has been tossed around before but curious as to the timeline of Bill Ireland's' Thunderbolt history.
I know they built them in both white and burgundy but thought Ireland only had one, was it repainted.
If there were two which was his first one?
The first eleven were vintage burgundy, they were completed K code cars that were modified. The rest were partially completed body's in white finished as T bolts. If you got one of the burgundy cars you were top on Fords list.
