Ford Thunderbird

This is a photograph I took at the Northern Classic Car Show at G-Mex, Manchester in August 1989.
It's a Ford Thunderbird First Generation, a car which was produced between 1955 and 1957, and you can tell that this is a 1956 model because the spare wheel is mounted on the back of the car and it has the air vents in the body in front of the doors. The 1957 car had further modifications to the front bumper, the grille and the tailfins. The Ford Thunderbird was produced not as a sports car, but as a 'personal luxury car' and as such the pink colour suits it.
