The Torok’s are excellent hosts and their facility is outstanding. The ‘56 T-Bird was just what we wanted. It’s in great working condition and looked perfect. We drove the car about 50-60 miles in the scenic Kentucky countryside with the top down. Great sounding glass-pack mufflers are a plus on this car. It certainly is a head-turner and we talked with people everywhere we went! We still can’t decide which was better; meeting the Torok’s, seeing their classic car collection or driving the t-bird? A definite repeat experience for us. Michael & Cynthia Frank

What a beautiful and fun car. We had an amazing day touring around the countryside with this old beauty. Dale was great and his route recommendation was the best.

Spoke with Dale over a year ago and booked a weekend in his 56’ Thunderbird. Had to cancel and the next year we were able to make it work. Dale was the perfect host before we even picked up the car all the way until we returned it. He treated us like family and not someone who was renting one of his classic cars. The t-bird was phenomenal and we turned heads everywhere we went pretending that sweet ride was ours rolling through the Kentucky countryside. We got pretty good at it. The car itself was in perfect condition and ride was great, and it was everything we imagined it was going to be except having to dodge a few rain storms. We look forward to trying another experience through Dale or Driveshare in the future. Thanks again Dale!
