    Steve Wise from Lamesa, Texas, owned Humpin Henry back in the 70's and 80's when I owned my T Bolt. He was running a BBC in it at the time we talked. His car was an original Texas car. I can't remember which dealer sold/sponsored it, but it might have been one in the Midland/Odessa area.

    Hello, I'm new to The H.A.M.B., and I wouldn't have joined, except for a coincidental viewing of this Forum as a non-member. I take it to be very offensive to be called a liar (and basically, that is what Tom S. of Tennessee, did when he said the story of The Country Boy Thunderbolt posted on Craig Sutton's site wasn't true. My name is Terry Woods and I AM THAT FIREMAN from Texas that bought the Country Boy from George in Nashville, TN. For Tom or anyone to state publicly that there were NO Thunderbolts in the Nashville area during a certain time without documentation shows the ignorance of the person making the statement. Fortunately, George corrected some of the misinformation posted about The Country Boy, but I still am offended when someone calls me a liar because he doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground The information posted on Craig Sutton's site is 100% true to my knowledge; I wrote it. When I sold the Country boy, it went right back to Nashville. The man who bought it from me owned a talent booking agency called North American Tours. At the time, he was the booking manager for Kenny Rogers. He bought the Country Boy and had it moved back to Nashville, but before his restoration specialist could finish the restoration, the restoration guy died of a heart attack. The Country Boy was then sold to a buyer in Massachusetts. I know that buyer's name and have his phone number but it is private information.

  8. Try not to be so offended.. they are just words and it’s just cars , albeit cool ones. Thanks for coming on this cool page and rambling on without posting any Tbolt pictures.

    For you doubting Thomas'. I only have a picture of the Country Boy when the original driver, Jim Cochrane, owned it. Although I had it painted and lettered when I sold it, the new owner who restored it, stripped off all the professionally done paint and lettering that I paid for, as I have noted from a photo of the restored car, posted on this forum. Also shown is the picture of my 63 R code Galaxie 500 convertible which was the cover car of the club magazine of The Performance Ford Club of America in 1987. The last known owner of the Country Boy was in Mass. and the last known owner of the 63 Galaxie 500 convertible and the 66 R code Fairlane was the same buyer/owner in Colorado.

    All you have to do is pop the back of the laptop off and unconnect the hard drive. Then get a SATA connection on a different computer or even a USB hard drive case and plug that in to any computer. Super easy.

    Flag start in early 1964 at Music City Raceway in Nashville, TN. Shown is the Jim Skinner Thunderbolt before altered wheelbase modifications.

    I worked at Bob Ford in the late 70's. Original owner (really nice guy) was getting old at that time and sold the dealership to his general manager that I had worked with at another dealer. Don't know if he's still around but his daughter worked there and I would guess she's running it now.

    Buddy of mine had a that worked there had a thing going with his daughter. The owner Mr. Walker hated him and tried to fire him a few times. We still laugh about it when one of us mentions it.
