My husband, Sean, and I officially took over ownership of my family’s 1956 Ford Thunderbird in May of last year. The T-Bird has been in my family more than 50 years, and rather than truck it from my parents’ home in Gilbert, Arizona, we decided to embark on a road trip along the West Coast to bring her to our place in Bothell, Washington.

Ashley, I got my '56 Bird when I was 15, in 1966. I kept it through HS and University, putting 183,000 miles on it in 7 years. I sold it when I was 23; when my Dad, who helped me get it and make it a great looking and great car, heard, he just said, "You'll be sorry." Of course, he was SO right. Oh, and small world, my daughter and I visited Sea Lions Cave just a few summers ago! Glad for you and for your husband. Enjoy!
Epic car, epic drive, epic couple. Having driven your entire route (on multiple occasions, separately), I can only imagine the joy doing it in one trip, in a car just one-year newer than me.
