Featured Thunderbird for March 2000

1962

1962 Exterior: Red/White
Owner: Ken Cross, Bakersfield, CA

This is my '62 T-Bird, bought fresh out of restoration in Bakersfield, California in 1998. Picture taken at NASA in Feb. '99 at Edwards Air Force Base, where I work. This is a daily driver and all original.

I turned 16 years old in '62 and this was my dream ride (in my dreams!). I just had to buy it in '98; the year that Mark McGwire broke the '62 Home Run record and John Glenn (the first manned space flight in 1962) returned to space.

By the way, the California license plate reads "6TY 2".
