The second weekend of July, from Friday 8th to Sunday 10th, 22 classic Thunderbirds gathered for an unforgettable weekend. There were 12 T-birds from Norway,10 T-birds from Sweden and one member met with his 1956 Ford F100 Pick-up, who transported the lunch for cruising on Saturday. This years meeting was marking the 50th anniversary of the Thunderbird. All participants got a 50th anniversary t-shirt and a good anniversary red wine.
On Saturday the temperature was close to 90 degrees F, so all T-birds cruised topless on the beautiful roads in the Inderoy area. During the cruising we had stops atGjorv Deer farm, beautifully Kjerknesvaagenmarina, Skarnsundet bridge which is the world’s longest bridge using inclined cable suspension ( 3050 feet’s long) across the Skarnsundet sound and finally to the Muustroeparkwith the famous Nils Aas sculptures.
All the Thunderbirds were arranged in the park for making some beautiful unforgettable photos. Many participants and public enjoyed to have better look at the beautiful Thunderbirds.
Jaegtvolden Fjord hotel showed up to be a perfect place to arrange a meeting of this kind. The hotel had arranged a barbeque dinner on Friday evening in the garden, and all 47 participants enjoyed a huge unforgettable dinner on Saturday. One of the members, Bjorn Walseth, entertained us on his keyboard. We had some wonderful days together with Thunderbird friends, a lot of good car-stories and of course beautiful Norwegian nature.
