Description

This fine lady is named "Maybelene". She earned her name because when I first got her (and SHE is definitely a SHE!) she would always give me trouble. It seems like whenever I took her somewhere, I would get stranded in a parking lot and had to call my husband for help. The last time that happened, I was sitting in the car listening to an oldies radio station. The song "Maybellene" by Chuck Berry came on and I started to listen to the words, "Maybellene, why can't you be true". From then on, the name stuck - BUT she's been TRUE ever since! As for the spelling, I changed it a little because this car is unique and I felt she deserved a unique name. She's my baby and my daily driver. I've taken her to many shows and won several first place awards in the T-Bird catagory. My husband and I either work on her or show her every weekend.

Parts to be sourced:

Alas, I had to sell my beloved Bird. But she will be living in the lap of luxury because she was sold to a lovely French fellow who loves American luxury cars. As of 12/06/07, Maybelene was on her way to Paris, France to live out her days as part of a fantastic collection of cars. I wish her well. I will always love her.
