Dan Lineback and Mike Puckett had the honor of representing the MN12 Thunderbirds in a flock of Birds participating in the 4th of July parade in Dunwoody. A total of eight birds owned by members of the North Georgia Vintage Thunderbird Club (All Years), Classic Thunderbird Club International ('55-'57), The Metro Atlanta Thunderbird Group ('02), and the SCCoSE attended. The parade included a '57 convertible, a '66 hardtop and a '66 convertible, Mike's 35th Anniversary Edition, Dan's '91 SC, and three '02 Birds. All of the T-birds received many compliments from the numerous spectators. Following the parade we ate lunch and discussed the history and evolution of these cars over the past 47 years.

|The line of Birds really impressed the thousands of spectators||Mike's 35th and Dan's 91 at the restaurant||Two '02s, a '57, and two SCs in the parking lot of the restaurant|
An amazing coincidence...the wall paper at J. Christopher's (the restaurant) featured '57 Chevrolets and '56 T-Birds!
