Have a request that came down through ITC-Carlisle is setting up a display-Evolution of the Thunderbird-and we need representation from the Super Coupe community! As of yet we have NO Super Coupes in place, other than my 95 Auto. We need one car from each year-and we are also accepting special editions-so for 1990 you could see a V6, an Anniversary SC, and a standard SC.

Only stipulation is that they need to be stock or near stock in appearance & equipment.

I need to know if anyone is interested is displaying their car-contact me at
ttsona@mchsi.com

I'd love to, but my '94 isn't pretty enough to show like that. :(

Pablo-they want Stock vehicles, restored OR UNRESTORED original cars-if you have a car that is original with damage or bad paint, you can dislpay it-this isn't about who has the prettiest car on the block, but gathering all 50 years of Thunderbirds for a once in a lifetime display.


2005
All Ford Nationals at Carlisle, PA
Thunderbird 50th Anniversary Celebration
Evolution Display

To be in the Evolution display, the owner has to agree to have the car in place by 9:00 am Friday and the car HAS to be there for all 3 Days until 3:30 pm on Sunday and if the vehicle leaves the show field each day it has to be back by 8:00 am Saturday and 8:00 am Sunday! Each participant will receive a special participation shirt (there will be a participation form created which will be mailed to each participant). Vehicles in the Evolution Display will not be considered for class participant ballot awards! Vehicles in the display will be considered for celebrity pick awards! Participants will receive a special event participation gift related to the event! Owners will be recognized in the program.

You must still register and can use the ITC Registration form and please note on the form, that your car will be in the Evolution Display.

Owners of cars in the evolution display will receive their event entrance window decal in the mail prior to the event so there will be no formal registration at the gate as usual for these cars as they can go direct to the Evolution Display area!

Evolution Display Thunderbirds must be original non-modified cars either restored or un-restored original cars. No modified Thunderbirds are to be placed in the Evolution Display as requested by Carlisle!

I don’t think this has ever been accomplished so please consider adding your name to this list by contacting Don Holton directly for up to date availability by year as this will be 1st come 1st confirmed for entry e-mail: topsdown@holtononline.com or 607-734-5340 Please include owner information, year, unusual qualities, ie Special Edition…

Early Registration for both the Evolution Display and the normal display classes of $30.00 must be received by February 21, 2005:

Would my engine compartment be too far from stock? What about aftermarket wheels? It's a 90 SC.

Hmm... I dunno if it's "stock" enough. I could always put the stock airbox and foglamps back in, but the raised top, UD/OD pulleys, and the fan wiring kind of kill it.

Nick Anzano from the North Jersey Thunderbird Organization is already filled in for the 95 spot with his V-8 Anny T-bird (40th anniversary).


Still looking for 1989-1993 and 1996.


Good luck...

Well, I have a 1992 that's stock, all except the radio, if that counts. I wouldn't mind helping out here, but I'm pretty new to this club thing and car show thing and it would be my first time anywhere, let alone something the size of Carlisle.

I guess maybe I'm just a little hesitant because I don't know my way around yet.

I think it meets those requirements. But hey, I'm not completely unbiased here. ;)

Why don't you check out my member page and tell me what you think. The pictures are pretty current. She looks good, I think, but I don't want to embarass myself or any of the clubs I would be representing, I guess. That includes yours too, you know. Even though I'm not shown on the Souther NY section I did email something to someone some time ago. I'm registered under "justanotherSCowner", which I guess I should change.

No need for a 94-if the 90 has been switched to full black leather then it has been modified, and cannot be displayed at the Evolution display

I have an almost stock Twilight-Blue-Metalic-Clearcoat 1993 5-Spd. in excellent condition.

Mods:
Suspension Techniques 1.5'' lowering springs
Koni Shocks
Addco 1.25'' sway bars (front and rear)
Pontiac Air Dam
Modified Power-Steering Cooler (looks good though)
Dayco Belt-tensioner pulleys
Shortened A/C Condenser
Lightly tinted windows (all except windshield)
No insulation on underside of hood.

Cool Stuff:
Original window sticker
Original sound system (rebuilt woofer) w/ Ford Sampler CD (music sucks, but it sounds extra good on the JBL) and Factory CD case.
Original paint (few minor rock chips in hood, and a 1'' section flaked off extreem bottom of rear bumber.
Interior is in Brand New Condition!!! Cloth/Leather seats (black interior)
I would get new headlamps and corners for the show.
Stock Rims (99.9% perfect) with PERFECT center caps.
Brand new Air purge gasket (white thing on thermostat housing)

Well, that's my ride. You've got to see it to belive it. It's not a garage queen, so the engine bay is not in 100% magazine quality, but it's clean enough to eat off of. Well, I'd eat off of it. Everything works. Pick me. :D

Mike, you should go regardless. I'll be driving my 93 out if you want to caravan.

Thanks for the votes of confidence guys. I really think it would be an awsome chance to be a part of the display. I sent an e-mail to Jim & Darlene Osowski, but I'm not sure if it went through. I got a few rejections from hotmail, but when I sent it via my Verizon account it didn't bounce back (well, not that I know of).

Paul, we'll be in touch. If this does happen on my end, we should definately cruize together. I'll bring some tools, you'll bring some tools, who know what will break between CA and PA??? :p

Gosh, the evolution display really sounds like a sight to behold. I really want to see it.

I have been talking to Don Holton. When he contacted me about finding cars for the display, I didn't think it would reach out so far!!!!!

CALIFORNIA!!!!!! Hell, that's a trip!!!!


You will not be disappointed with Carlisle at all.

Please contact me at (973) 277-4294 regarding staging out there. We have hotels reserved for Thursday night out there and hope to be on the showfield by 8:30 a.m. on Friday.

We (the NJTACC) are bringing the 90, 91 spots as well as the New Jersey Thunderbird Organization (mostly older birds) Nick Anzano, is bringing the 95 Anniversary car.


Hope to see ya there!!!!!

Get this, I just found out last week that we are relocating to Newark, New Jersey. We'll be there the end of this month. :D Guess this trip just got a little shorter.

Don, I'll give you a ring this weekend when I have some free minutes on the cell phone.

For the guys coming out from California-if you're gonna cruise down I-80 in Iowa, why don't you make an overnight here in CR?? We could find ya a place to crash, maybe have a get-together with the guys from the SCCoIA and a BratBQ-mike does a mean grilled brat!

Resurrecting an old thread...

Don, did NJTACC reserve any rooms this year? I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to make it, but it looks like I will be. Hopefully I can find a room left. Is anyone from the club planning on convoying down this year?

Thanks,
Brandon (formerly from CT, now RI)

I can finally say I had the pleasure of meeting many of the people posting in this thread (I know it's from 2005 and earlier) Don & Ezzie, Mike K, Jim, Joe & Wanda, Anthony,Ira & Gail, etc. It was great getting to meet them and finally have faces to go along with names. I'm sure many of us can say something alone the following lines:

"Hi. My name is Brandon and I'm an SC addict.":D

Here's a link to the Carlisle website. http://www.carsatcarlisle.com/ford/index.asp. As I've learned, bring an umbrella! It's a Carlisle must ;).

I wasn't able to make it in 2006 with it being too close to my wedding, but I'm looking forward to this year and getting to see everyone again.

Thanks, Mike. I look forward to seeing everyone again.

Here are some pics I'll share. More pics will have to wait till Carlisle as I don't want to hijack the thread and stray way off topic. I'll remove them if someone objects.
