This year’s car is a ’57 Ford Thunderbird. It’s a personal luxury car. It’s an automobile legend.
The 1957 Thunderbird was significantly restyled from the two previous year models with a more chiseled body, a larger front bumper around a larger front grille, a redesigned trunk lid and more pronounced, sharper-edged tail fins. The new trunk lid allowed the spare tire to move back inside. The 312-cubic-inch V8 was standard on the ’57 Thunderbird with output pegged at 245 hp.

Gallup, NM (you need not be present to win)
$25 each. We pay the taxes.
The Rev. Matthew Keller started the V8s for Vocations project by restoring a donated ’72 Chevelle SS in 2014. It was raffled in 2016 to provide scholarships for seminarians to become priests for the Diocese of Gallup. The Diocese is the poorest in the United States, and creative ways to sustain the life in the Diocese are much needed.
I really think that for $25 per ticket, you can't go wrong. You have a chance to win an awesome car, and you're helping a great cause. Father Keller ... and all the people who supported and donated their time—I can't thank them enough for everything they did on this car!
