Mike Ludy is one of the charter members of the Midwest Firebirds and served as one of our board members from the very inception of our club. We congratulate him and his wife Peggy, as they retire in sunny Florida.
Mike has been a huge part of our club, serving us well over the past two and a half years. His wisdom and enthusiam will be missed. He has also done several restorations of first gen Firebirds, and his current Matador Red 1969 400HO convertible is one of the finest restorations of a rare 400HO we have seen.
Peggy and Mike have been great supporters of our club, participating in almost all of our cruises. They will be missed, but his experience will not be lost. Mike will be officially heading up the new Southern branch of the Midwest Firebirds in sunny South Florida!
I’ll close with this video Matt Avery shot at a show in Arlington Heights, Illinois last year (2014) we had three member cars there including Mike and Peggy’s Firebird. I love how Matt captured Mike and Peggy as they were leaving the show saying “Bye”. We wish you all the best as you move on to the next chapter in your lives in Florida.
