Christmas Breakfast 2015

Thunderbird Xmas breakfast

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

Black 57 Tbird

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.

Hot Summer Nights 2014

Hot Summer Nights 2014 Cranksters

You’ve carved the turkey, sang Auld Lang Syne & worked off a hangover or two. Now it’s time to have some proper fun!

Start off the New Year right and meet & greet other car-lovin’ folks for the Annual Cranksters’ Hot Summer Nights event. No registration necessary, open to all pre 1978 classics, customs & Hot Rods. We’d love to see a few Tbirds at this fun family event.

2013 Christmas Meetup at The Kiosk


Thanks to everyone who joined us at this morning’s annual Christmas Pancake Breakfast. We had about 13 fabulous Tbirds, and met friends old and new for a chinwag and chow-down.

The Kiosk at Fremantle, alongside the River, proved to be a great venue with an inviting stretch of lawn adjoining the café. The day started off overcast, but beautiful blue skies soon appeared. We had several police in attendance, not to enquire about Paul’s Kansas licence plate, but just for a look-see and a chat.

We missed our friend Dennis who sadly passed away in March. His easygoing charm and good humour will be missed.

Check out the day’s pics here.
Merry Christmas and a prosperous, happy New Year to all! Thankyou for your interest and support – we hope to see you in 2014.

2013 Christmas Breakfast Cruise

Tbirds Christmas Breakfast


Ladies & Gents, rev your engines, get your loose trousers pressed… it’s the Annual Tbird Christmas Breakfast.

This year we’re visiting the Kiosk’s southern riverside cousin – the new Kiosk Fremantle. It’s right between the bridges, opposite the old Rotto ferry departure point, at 123 Beach St, East Fremantle. There’s spacious parking across the road, and the same incredible breakfast food as the Kiosk Floreat.

Please call, text or email Paul to confirm you’re coming – we need to book as it’s a somewhat smaller space than Floreat.

So shine up the duco, we’d love to see you and swap stories about the latest epic mechanical hitches!
