        Sorry for the delay everyone. How about a shot of your bird on the waterfront. This one is at Gros Cap Ontario looking across Lake Superior into Michigan. This is about 20 miles from where the Edmond Fitzgerald went down.

          Well we had some great waterfront shots of our Thunderbirds. Thanks to all who posted. I choose NotU to give the next challenge. You are up Randy

          • Thank you! This is another surprise. I'm honored.
            How about a picture of the 'bird in distress.
            I know it doesn't happen often, so there may not be many like this.
            Thanks, again. 20190725_185159.jpg

            • My Inca Gold after a javelina encouter in Big Bend. Area was so remote that there was no cell signal and Border Patrol that 20171025_132046.jpg stopped to help had to drive several miles to find a place where his radio would work. The nearest shop that could repair it was in El Paso, 300 miles away.

                        Pappisito's 2020, which looks like the only TBN event I'll get to go to this year, under the entrance to the hotel. Changing coils, in what other group would you find so many people who would drop everything and just say "come on, let's change them right now", and even have someone say "I have a set of plugs" (Ron McLoud) and not allow you to pay for them or replace them, his answer was "some day someone will need plugs and you'll have them for them to use".

                        Thanks to all the fine gentlemen, I won't name them as I will surely miss someone, who came to my aid.

                        • Just read this challenge late last night. Been searching for the last few hours to find my photo. Couldn't remember when, so looked here to see if I could find my old post. That put me closer to date but only by mileage, then went to garage to check my gas mileage log. Darn, had started a new log book (filled up old one) and don't know where the old one is buried. Then decided to find the old Ford receipt for the repair. That came a lot closer to the date so I could find it in my photos.

                          May 2, 2012 after filling it with gas at a Shell station 12 miles from home, then car wouldn't start. Had to get a neighbor come get us with his trailer and winch it onto the trailer.

                            What is that rusty bar connected to. Not the chrome wheels??

                              Those bars are used to anchor the ramps when towing the trailer.

                              Great shots. I will try to pick a favorite tomorrow morning. Thank you all!

                              • Ron (4LOWBIRDS+7),
                                Your picture and story deserve the selection for this round. Great shots, all.
                                Has anyone seen a picture of a retrobird that doesn't look good?
                                Thank you.
