I would drive from Idaho to pick up this car


There is a museum in Deer Lodge, Montana which is one of the best I have ever visited. It is located in part of the old state penitentiary complex. There are nearly 200 classic and vintage cars in the building. If you are a biker it is worth the drive to see the place. From several points in Idaho it is only a few hours drive. There are reasonably priced hotels in town (Deer Lodge is the hometown of NBA great Phil Jackson). There are several museums. The automotive showcase is the largest of the group.

The Thunderbird pictured on the postcard is being sold as a fundraiser. You can buy tickets and there will be a raffle in early December. I buy tickets every year. Camaros and old Corvettes have been prized in the past.

The museum sends me a postcard every year and I return the favor by sending money. He keeps the lights on, even if I don’t win. And I think the museum is a good cause.

If I won the T-bird, I think it would be easy to recruit some friends to help me get my prize. Especially if they’ve spent time behind the wheel.

On the evening of the drawing, there is usually a banquet.

i will share one link so you can get more details.

I once won $50 in a contest. I had no luck otherwise. I would think if I drove home with the car, I could stop complaining about being unlucky.
