Hagerty Driving Experience
Through this Operation Ignite! initiative -- held Friday, July 8 at the Automotive Hall of Fame in Dearborn, MI -- young drivers between 15 and 20 years old had the chance to celebrate Collector Car Appreciation Day behind the wheel of some of the sweetest classics to learn to drive a manual transmission. The day started with a short classroom session, in which more than 30 young adults learned the basics of how a clutch and transmission work. Then the fun really started as participants headed out to the closed course and received one-on-one driver training from classic car owners. Each participant had the chance to get behind the wheel of awesome classics, including a 1928 Packard Phaeton, 1930 Ford Model A Tudor sedan, 1940 Buick Super convertible, 1955 Porsche 356 Cabriolet and a 1963 Corvette "split window" coupe. Two modern cars were also available -- a 2011 Camaro SS convertible from Ken Lingenfelter (Lingenfelter Performance) and a 2011 Ford Mustang GT coupe provided by Ford. Not only did kids learn to drive these cool cars, they also learned the basics of taking care of their own cars during a "Car Care Essentials" seminar. Instruction was given on checking fluids, tire pressure, battery connection and safety. "In order to keep classics on the road for future generations to enjoy, we have to give youth access to these rare cars and teach them the ins and outs of driving such unique vehicles," said McKeel Hagerty, CEO of Hagerty Insurance. "The feedback we received was incredible. They really seemed to embrace the event." With all the excitement surrounding this awesome day, plans are being developed to host several more Driving Experiences throughout the United States. Keep checking in with Operation Ignite! for information on future events and be sure your spot is reserved! For more visit http://www.hagerty.com

1955 Ford Thunderbird: Back in Black -- /BIG MUSCLE
It's been in the same family for the better part of 50 years. Been modified with performance and weight savings in mind, and is one of the sleekest looking cars we've ever come across. This 1955 Ford Thunderbird is no secretaries car, but a purpose built award winning street machine that was built in a time before resto-modding old cars was all the rage.

Finally starting up my 1977 T-Bird again after a whole year!
Hey everyone, I finally got a chance to start up my T-Bird and give it a spin. It has been way too long. Last time I started it was Sept. last year (2010). Starts up again without really any problems, small fuel leak, 40 second fix. lol. Here is the history of my t-bird: My dad bought it for his first car and he stopped driving it in 1989 because of some carb problems. My dad saved the car for me and in 2004 I had the chance to get it running again. To my surprise, after not running for 15 years, I poured gas down the carb and it fired right over!!!!! After I bypassed the gas lines (old gas in them) I had it running like new. Haha, first time I put it in gear it squealed the tires and jumped forward a couple feet!!! I make sure I have the break to the floor before I put it in gear now! Later in 2004 I brought the car in to a mechanic to have the tranny flushed, but because of my lack of car knowledge I found out the hard way that you don't do that to a old car. It now has tranny problems, sometimes it wont stay in gear. Which really sucks because the tranny was working beyond perfect before. It still has the minor carb problems mentioned above too. And so I parked it in the storage shed in the video and it is waiting for me to have the money and time to continue rebuilding it.

When introduced, it created the market niche eventually known as the personal luxury car. For 1964 the Thunderbird was restyled in favor of a more squared-off appearance, which was mostly evident when viewing the car from the side or rear. Hinting at its roots in the previous generation Thunderbird that it evolved from, the new model retained a similar grille design with dual headlights. As before, the new Thunderbird continued to be offered in hardtop, convertible, and Landau versions. VIN 4Y85Z128649 Ultra Rare and Beautifully Restored. Original Owners Manual Included.

1955 Ford Thunderbird Convertible Classic Muscle Car for Sale in MI Vanguard Motor Sales
http://www.ClassicCarBuyingSecrets.com Click now for an instant download on "How to Avoid the 7 Deadliest Mistakes of Buying a Classic Car Online"! Some cars are simply universal in their appeal. No matter if you're a Ford guy, a Mopar guy or a Chevy guy, there are some cars that transcend barriers. I'd argue that the 1955-57 Ford Thunderbird is such a car. Great looks and instantly recognizable, it all adds up to a beautiful car that everyone sees as something special. Some T-Birds are more special than others, however, and Ill argue that this '55 is one of the nicest we've seen lately. The recipient of a 3 year, body-off restoration that cost somewhere near $85,000, this car is in outstanding condition from top to bottom. The mirror finish black paint is absolutely beautiful, applied over those classic T-Bird curves. Whenever I think of an early 'Bird, I always picture this color combination. All of the chrome and trim is perfect, the bumpers have been re-chromed. The body is straight, solid and rust free. The panel gaps are awesome and the door, hood and trunk lips are clean. This car looks even better in person than it does in photos. The doors open and close with precision, the forward-tilting hood fits extremely well, and the trunk lid, including the pass-through for the fuel filler, fits well. The paint has obviously been cut and buffed, because the gloss is fantastic. Under the hood you'll find a nicely detailed 292cubic inch motor and the 3-speed manual transmission. Up front there's a 3-blade fan which looks awesome. The Thunderbird valve covers are a beautiful addition. The Exhaust manifolds have been coated to keep them looking "like-new" forever. A new heater box and duct work, new wiring and a new master cylinder were updated during the restoration. This 'Bird also received a fresh alignment. You will find a battery shut off switch under the dash as well. Underneath, you'll find that the entire frame has been treated to a black paint job before the body was reinstalled. The floors are as glossy as the body panels and it creates an awesome background for the details that are found throughout. The springs and shocks have been rebuilt, and the stainless steel Exhaust system is beautiful. The rear end housing has a paint job that is worthy of the hood! The gas tank has been refinished, and the brake lines as well as the parking brake cable are new. The steering gear is painted, the bushings are new and there are new motor mounts front and back. The back sides of the fenders are beautiful as well, showing no filler, no bumps and no bruises. The interior is a real treat. As I said, whenever I think of a '55-57 T-Bird, I always envision a black one with a black and white interior. The power seat has been as beautifully restored as the exterior, and are all-day driving comfortable. The instruments have been fully restored and look gorgeous in that jet-age instrument panel that is framed by engine-turned metal appliqu├ęs that run from end to end. The dash pad and carpets are also new. There is an aftermarket stereo installed in the dash. The original Town & Country AM radio is in working condition, and will go with the car to the new owner. Overhead, the black top fits extremely well. This T'Bird comes with a tunneau cover and an unfinished hardtop (all components required to finish it are available). The trunk features a new mat and a matching wide whitewall tire. Many T-Bird enthusiasts think that 1955 is the best-looking of all the early 'Birds, with no external spare tire like in 1956, and no extended trunk and mini tailfins like the '57. Instead, the purity of the original design that wowed crowds at car shows remained pretty much intact. Restored to spectacular condition inside and out, this particular '55 T-Bird is on that you can drive and enjoy, or trailer to a show and bring home trophies; it all depends on your mood. This is a car where you're getting an awful lot of restoration for not a lot of money, all surrounding a gorgeous, highly-collectable car that will always have an eager crowd of admirers around it. Like I said earlier, there's almost nobody who doesn't think an early Thunderbird is a great car. If you've longed to put one in your collection, I submit this as an excellent candidate.
