      (CAR CLUBS--CLASSIC THUNDERBIRD CLUB INT'L.)
      Charming album compiled by Donald J. Gridley (Member No. 5), an avid Ford T-Bird collector, following he and his wife's shared passion for American classics, and their baby blue Ford Thunderbird.
      The detailed and neatly compiled album presents 137 photographs taken at various club meets and runs throughout Michigan, many depicting other Thunderbird owners posed by their pristine rides; alongside car-centric images of roadtrips undertaken by Don and his wife, Lucy (T-Bird club member No. 279, but Mustang owner). The album also includes ephemeral objects related to the club and car shows, such as membership cards, window tags, travel notes, decals, medallions, stickers, and a xeroxed letter from the chairman of the Ford Motor Company. Polaroids (13), chromogenic (120), and silver prints (4), sleeved recto/verso, some with typed captions affixed on sleeve rectos. Tall 4to, green leatherette, with affixed dymo labels. 1961-81
