ABOUT MITCH..... Many of you knew Mitch throughout the Thunderbird industry and the world as a master of his craft in the art of restoring the 55 to 57 Thunderbirds. Mitch was highly recognized in the early Thunderbird community, and respected for his skill, knowledge, honesty, and integrity.  For years he owned Mitch’s T-Birds in Downey California and continued to give tirelessly of his time, energy, and knowledge through the promotion and education of the love of classic cars.  He could be found behind-the-scenes working at car shows and as a member of many car clubs such as CTCI (Classic Thunderbird Club International), some for more than 40 years.  And many of you may remember him as the long-time former tech editor for CTCI.
