About “Tandepöödi”

I've always wanted to own MN-12 model T-bird. Long time ago before my driving licence, I had a crush on Thunderbirds. I'm from Finland, and these birds are much more rare here than in USA. I feel honored to own one of these over here. As it's a big and stylish coupe, it's always turning heads wherever I go. It is totally different thing than any euro trash we got here.

I got her in -06 summer, and since then it's been my daily driver. Winter is no problem as long as you got some weight in the trunk. It handles really great, and it's always fun to sit behind the wheel. I've driven many cars so far, but T-bird has some special feeling that I haven't felt in any other car.

For it's age it's in very good shape (thanks to the lovely lady owner in USA). Until -06 summer when I got her, she's been virgin to salt. As it was gonna be my daily driver, her body and bottom have been given the right treatment and protection against the salty and heavy winter conditions we got here.

About “Odin”

This is my 1999 Ford Escort SE that I recently bought as my daily driver / winter beater so that I can begin work on the T-Bird project.

I don't have a lot planned for this little car but it is also a side project I am working on and to practice with. I am mainly going for a rally and tuner look due in fact to it being an l4 (I also like the Escort Cosworth a lot). I plan on spending a couple weeks at most modifying it.

More to come...
