2002 Ford Thunderbird

2002 Ford Thunderbird

Boring Car Colors

1976 Ford Maverick with Luxury Decor Group and Tu-Tone paint.

There’s something to be said for people who go to Golden Corral specifically for the steak. Steak, it seems, means different things to many people. There’s the Ruth’s Chris steak, and there’s the buffet-style steak–as seen at restaurants such as Golden Corral. If you’re an average American, it’s likely you can’t afford to visit Ruth’s Chris on a weekly basis, no matter how good the dry-aged center-cut ribeye is.

Goodguys Heartland Gallery

Fairly ordinary then, far from ordinary now: a 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 two-door hardtop.

Every summer, the Goodguys Rod & Custom Association stages about 20 annual street rod and custom car events at fairgrounds and other large venues across the country. These are sprawling, weekend-long gatherings that include attractions such as swap meets, manufacturer midways, live music, autocross competitions, and plenty of on-premises cruising. They draw huge numbers of participant vehicles and spectators—the larger events regularly surpass 4000 registered show cars.
