Yeah, but I was much more impressed with the 442, it's more my style of car.

Foose's Speedbird is the ONLY new model Thunderbird that I like. It looks like it's the ONE of a kind Concept never made it through production. As for the 442, I was impressed, the paint job was hella sweet

I don't often find myself drooling about too many things in this world (the doctors helped alot ) but
I really, really wanted that car. The engine needs a comparable level of attention but overall
the car and its paint job is truly one of my favorites of all time.

yea that Olds was the best make over I've seen in a while on that show. I would like to see him get a hold of a early sixties model T-bird.

The 4-4-2 was nice, but I just watched the '56 Bel Air one last night, and the amount of work and change they did to that car was amazing. Turned a 4 door hardtop into a 2 door speedster.

I worked one car show in which there was a trophy for best 68-current Tbird. Chip and I were the only ones who brought such a car...who do you think won? But then again, since I was judging that class, it would have been amusing to award my own car over Chip's.
