Proud of East Texas: Dalton's Thunderbirds

By Joan Hallmark

1957 was the year John Dalton graduated from High school and began dreaming of someday owning a fabulous American-made Ford Thunderbird. But it wasn't until he was nearing retirement from the Air Force that he was able to indulge his boyhood dreams

Now, Dalton owns over three thousand T-Birds. Granted,  most are small models that range from intricate scale models to Hot Cars and Avon bottles shaped like T-Birds.. Dalton is a member of the Arkla-Tex Bayou Birds and the International Association of T-Bird Collectors.
