Took the little bird to check out the big bird.
My wife and I had the honor of being photographed with Miss Parton on the set of Christmas of Many Colors.
@eboose7 I didn't have a speaking role in 42, that was when I first got started, but I did make it into the movie poster. Here is my Demo Reel- [MEDIA=youtube]l4PjKaMuk9Y[/MEDIA]
Cool! I saw 42 about the life of Jackie Robinson. It was a story about a great American hero. What part did you play?
My pleasure! BTW I'm an actor, I did the movie 42 with Harrison Ford and it was pretty cool to see them bring in the car haulers with all the 40's cars one day. You are lucky to be able to use your car in the movie there are people that actually do that for a living, rent out cars to the studios.
Thank you very much. I really appreciate the video clip and your gracious comments.
That was not my car in Grimm. This was the movie debut of the '56.
Wonderful curves in the pic...
These pics are GREAT! I have a complete calender with pics like these (though not with any tbird in it). Anybody interested in these kind of pics, just take a look at the calender!
Not only matching numbers matter with the old cars... also matching colours!
I do not know which curves are more sexy... the tbird curves or your curves...
Not only the tbirds like this... it is a wonderful retro pic!
Christmas tree in a thunderbird...
I thought that birds would sit ON a tree ;-)
What a SEXY Coke girl ;-)
WOW... this looks like a painting... what a GREAT pic!
Was your car in Grimm on NBC last year too? They had a red bird on the show too.
Very true and when everyone thought she was crazy, she invested millions in her hometown and now Dollywood and Pigeon Forge are a huge success and many people are employed because of her.
Yes, I agree that Dolly Parton is in great shape. She puts some 25-year-olds to shame!
Wow, I thought mine was in great shape, but this beats me ! Congratulations
Thanks! I was honored to have my car selected for the movie. Miss Parton is as gracious as she is lovely.
Super Cool @eboose7. I live in East Tennessee where Dolly got her start!
I meant next month (December) haha Getting ahead of myself!
Thank you so much
How could I possibly not make this a photo of the week this month? haha Love it.
You can't tease us with just one photo @Steve Springer! lol Add some more.
Thanks Dave and I will keep posting them. No gonna be perfect but it is a labor of love.
Jeffrog . . . hats off to you! This looks major! My first car was a '66 TBird (back in the last millennium). It was 5 years old when I bought it, right out of high school. That car was way ahead of its time. We drove that car from one end of this country to the other. The only trouble I had with it was some weird intermittent electrical issues. Kudos for taking on this project. Keep the pic's coming!
@CSPIDY I'm going to make you the photo of the week Monday, so if you have anymore photos to upload, go ahead and add them.
Yes sir, more photos coming!!!
Great photo! Can you upload some more or do you just have the one photo? I will probably put you on next week's photo of the week. @chiefs
The mileage is now 97, 400 kilometers (November 8th, 2016)
The car is put away in the garage covered up for the winter
Regardless, the car is beautiful. It looks like it is going 100 m.p.h. sitting still!
eboose7, Thank you. Car is 2004 so it's not a 2002 N-M car. Interior is similar to N-M car as it's partial-white. I do have one of the 200 original Neiman-Marcus satin silver hardtops that I found in a St. Louis warehouse.
Good looking bird, just like mine and I bought it in Florida in 2011,
Is this a modification of a Neiman Marcus car? Anyway, I love what you have done with it. It looks sinister and that is meant as a compliment. Great job!
Beautiful, what size engine?
The car is a 2005 50th Anniversary. Thank you for the attention!
Jaguar designed the AJ35 engine and some parts were changed for Jaguar. Engine itself has been modified and dyno-tuned. Visible Jaguar parts are engine cover and coil covers.
What did you do to the engine?
