May 2021

Hello Club Members,
Our April event was a car show in the town of Grabill.  We had a nice day, with good attendance from the club members.  Those attending were Greg Minnich, 1955 Thunderbird, Bryan Provine, 1958 Thunderbird Hardtop, Keith Landis, 2002 Thunderbird, Gina Rodriguez, 2003 Thunderbird, Larry Sneary, 1958 Thunderbird Hardtop, Bud Gibson, 1964 Mercury Monterey Convertible, and myself in my 1966 Thunderbird Convertible.  Congratulations to Bud Gibson, the only member winning in the Top Ten Cars.  New club members Mike and Susan Weishelt stopped by to say hello, it was good to put faces to names.  They have a 1955 Thunderbird, but didn't bring it to the show as they were just out running around.  It was nice meeting them and of course we look forward to them joining us at upcoming events.
Our next club event will be on Sunday, May 16th, THUNDERBIRD APPRECIATION DAY.  Club VP Keith Landis volunteered to plan our day.  We will meet at 12:00 noon for lunch at Arcos Restaurante Mexicano, 2868 E. Dupont Road in the Fort.  It is in the same shopping center as The Trolly Bar.  Just ask to be seated with the Thunderbird Club.  After lunch, we will head to Auburn to tour The Auburn, Cord, and Duesenberg Museum.   It has been quite a few years since we have toured this wonderful museum, and with them changing displays frequently, there is always something new to see.  We encourage you all to drive your Thunderbirds, but if yours is not drivable that day, don't let that stop you from attending.  The daily beater will work just fine.  Our thanks to Keith for planning our day and I hope to see you there! 
As you check out our webpage, you will notice a new column entitled 'Getting to Know You.'  Many of you have filled out the survey sent out by Webmaster Amy Minnich.  Thank you for that, we will be featuring a new member each month.  Our first entry is from long time club member Lars Kneller from LaPorte, Indiana.  Be sure to check it out, and if you haven't sent in your survey be sure to do so.  
I would like to welcome our newest club members, Keith and Brenda Murphy from Marion, Indiana.  They are owners of a 1957 Thunderbird Convertible/Hardtop and also a Black 1962 Thunderbird Convertible.  We look forward to meeting them and having them join our Thunderbird family at upcoming events.  
So see you on May 16th for THUNDERBIRD APPRECIATION DAY,  let's get the flock out!
Best regards, 
Roger Noll, President
