    I must have watched the videos of Tom Kristensen driving that Thunderbird around Goodwood a few years ago, atleast 100 times, and Romain looks like he's having a blast! Goodwood Revival is an event i would really like to get out to some year!

  3. I love that bird! We were there in 2011 and there were a couple of big Galaxies running as well. So fun to watch! Hoping to get back next year as a 50th :eek:birthday present to myself!

    I like to see someone hammering it like it was intended.

    Very cool video!
    It sounded like the Brit commentator was having as much fun watching that as I did.
    I've knicknamed it the "Lumbering Battlebird".
