ATO members attend the Classic Thunderbird Club International convention in San Jose

On August 3, 2013, ATO members, Johanna and Merlin Hoiseth, and Brenda and John Shriver were in attendance at the Classic Thunderbird Club International convention in San Jose California.  Pictured below are Johanna, Merlin, Brenda and John with the Shrivers' award winning red 1956 Thunderbird, at the C.T.C.I. venue in San Jose.

The following photograph shows the more than 80 classic Thunderbirds lined up on the wharf at Santa Cruz.

Merlin reports that as first timers, he and Johanna enjoy seeing all the beautiful cars and meeting lots of fun people (which is typical of T-Bird owners).

John and Brenda are pictured below with their CTCI Region 3 Birds By the Bay 1956 Touring Third Place plaque presented at the awards banquet.
