Default 2011 TPS Ford Fest Car Show Picture Blowout

I went with the Thunderbird/Cougar Club of America and the Super Coupe Club of America to the 2011 TPS Ford Fest Car Show in Campbell (San Jose), California last Saturday. Lots of awesome cars showed up and I took a ton of pics. I just thought I'd share:




My car looks so much better without the hubdubs:

Thats awesome. 5.0 Foxes are cool cars, but at this point I really think Foxbodies are played out for the most part. If I was going to get a Fox Mustang it would definitely be a Capri or a four-eyed Mustang. Have you thought about the 5.0 Thunderbirds? (83-88, 91-93)

Sick 91-93 5.0 'Bird:

Sick 87-88 5.0 and 2.3T 'Birds:
Somewhat newb here...showing my pair of Thunderbirds - TCCoA Forums

I also really like other cars on the Fox chassis like the 1981-82 Granada, 1983-86 LTD, and the 1978-82 Fairmont. You can build them up as nice as a Foxbody but nobody would ever suspect them to be very quick. And you end up with something unique unlike the thousands of Mustangs out there.

Thanks man! I was actually wondering what you thought of the final product. I think it looks a lot better too.

Thanks for the encouragement to get new wheels, you were right, the hubdubs were pretty hideous.

Now if only the thing was running right...
