Yessiree, it’s everyone’s favourite Car Event of the entire year (& the only one we’ve actually hosted!) – the Annual Tbird Xmas Brekkie!
This year, we’re going riverside. Meet up at the Coode St Jetty carpark, South Perth (right next to the Surfcat hire), for a meet & greet, then breakfast at 8am at the Boatshed Café. If you prefer, there are BBQs in the park, but then you’d have to drive home with the smell of leftover bacon and sausages in your car, wouldn’t you? (maybe that ain’t a bad thing!). There’s an enclosed play area (for the kids, or the birds after a glass of sparkly) and glorious views of the city over the beautiful Swan River.
So rip the dust cover off the Tbird and dig out your elastic-waisted pants. It will be great to catch up with other Tbird owners – come along and make some new friends, and possibly find a solution to that pesky oil leak, the hydraulic system failure (bummer about the aircon), the best way to remove the hardtop on your ’57, or how to eradicate bacon smells from your pristine trunk interior.
Give Paul a call on 0417 766 552 if you’re planning on coming along. Hope to see you then!

All Ford Day Perth – November 1st, 2015 – Kingsway Football Oval
The All-Ford Day Perth is held every second year (on odd year numbers, in case you lose track). There are always a great selection of Fords, early models right through to current, hot rods, customs, classics and contemporary. Details from the AFD website.
Thunderbird owners, if you want to park together, give Greg a call on 0407 977 427. He’ll be there in his refurbished 1966 Landau.
(So you’d best tinker with your car now so there’s no chance of fuel blockages ruining your day!)
See the Events page for more upcoming November dates.

Come along to this great event next weekend (28th February) at the new venue, Lilac Hill Reserve. It’s always great to have a few Tbirds along, and this event is fun for the entire family. Bouncy castle, rockabilly bands, market stalls, dancers & stuff, all in the cool, cool of the evening.
Bill (pictured below) is helpfully demonstrating the relaxation technique required to balance in a folding chair and drink a refreshing ale. And talk.
Read the poster or see the Cranksters facebook page for more info.

Michael Paul Smith creates amazing dreamscape miniature models of a 1950’s utopia he calls “Elgin Park”. These deceptively realistic landscapes often feature period automobiles and sometimes, Thunderbirds!
A talented modelmaker, and unassuming gentle guy, Michael has become something of a sensation since his images went viral. This short but very revealing little Vimeo clip will completely captivate you. Take a look.

Well folks, the year is fast drawing to a close… and that means it’s time for the Annual Tbird Christmas Breakfast. The day in your diary we’ve all been dieting for.
Once again, we’re visiting the Kiosk Fremantle, between the bridges, opposite the old Rotto ferry departure point, at 123 Beach St, East Fremantle. There’s spacious parking on the grass (Paul has custom ramps ready for those low-slung undercarriages), wonderful breakfast food and coffee. Even better, the Kiosk is now licensed for alcohol, which means the missus can down some celebratory bubbles. Or the blokes, if so inclined.
Please call, text or email Paul to confirm you’re coming as we need to book.
So clear the diary for Sunday the 7th, and come join your fellow Tbird owners for a chinwag and coffee!
