BOB AND JEANNE DIERKES
It was a cool evening on October 21st, 1957 whenI picked up my Starmist Blue 1957 T-Bird at the age of 19. I traded in my first car, a 1953 Ford Victoria 2 door hardtop that I had purchased 6 months earlier. The T-Bird was a daily driver for 14 years. I then threw a cover over it in 1971 and it sat in my garage for the next 24 years. In August of 1995, a body off restoration was begun and completed in June of 1999. It is always driven to shows and events and has won numerous trophies, including several Best Of Show.
