1) The first will be a Thunderbird  "Evolution Display"!  A display row of one of each year of Thunderbird produced form 1955-2005.  This is an outside display that the Carlisle operators do not want the vehicles to leave the grounds once they are set.  All vehicles need to be in place by 10:00 am Friday morning and stay until 3:00 p.m. Sunday.  More information to follow!

2) The second will be a display in Building Y of rare and limited edition Thunderbirds examples would be but not limited to:  57 E & F Codes & Battle Birds, 57 E & F  Models 60 Sun Roof, 60 Allegheny Stainless Steel, 1963 Princess of Monaco, 65 Special Landau, 1967 Apollo, 78 Diamond Jubilee, 79 Heritage 1980 25th Anniversary, Fila, Elan 1985 30th Anniversary, 1990 35th Anniversary, 1995 40th Anniversary, 1997 limited Edition, 2002 Neiman Marcus, 2003 007, 2004 Pacific Coast Roadster, 2005 50th Anniversary Limited Edition etc.  Those individuals selected to be inside the building will need to arrive on "Thursday" and leave the car in the building throughout the show, they will not be able to drive it in the evening.  Sunday at 3:00 will be the check out time.

Each partint in the 2 special displays will receive a special partition shirt (there will be a partition form created which will be mailed to each partint).

I noticed that the official Carlisle website has yet to mention the Evolution Display or the rare & limited area.  Any word on when they'll update their webpage?

The 50th Anniversary Thunderbird stuff is just for T-Birds, but for the show itself there are Cougar classes (stock and modified).
