Chestertown, Maryland - February 10, 2019: Phil Hoon with his 1955 Ford Thunderbird in his Chestertown, Md., backyard.
Phil Hoon is an attorney from Chestertown, Md. His grandfather was a Ford dealer in rural Chestertown in the 1950s. When Ford released the Thunderbird in model year 1955, every dealer got one to sell. Phil Hoon's grandfather sold a Thunderbird to a local woman, who then sold it to Phil's mother. Now Phil has it, so it resides in the town where it was first sold.
