About dloftis’s Garage


About me and my passion for cars

I currently own a 1969 4 door Thunderbird. It has a 429 cu. in V-8 engine that was standard for that year and is a sleeper muscle car. I wanted a 4 door Thunderbird since I was 6 years old when I first saw one in my hometown. I was lucky enough to buy mine in May of 1990 and I am the 5th owner. It has always been a North Carolina car. These 4 door birds were only made 5 years (1967 to 1971) and never really caught on by the buying public. Most were crushed for their metal content in the 70's so few are left on the road.
I am a car nut but not a car snob (which means I like all car makes and models).

My first car

Car I wish I still had
