The Southeast Tennessee region's Thunderbird population will multiply this weekend during Mockingbird Run III, a gathering of the Smoky Mountain Classic Thunderbird Club out of Knoxville.

About 50 people from 10 states who are owners of '55-'57 Ford Thunderbirds will participate in the run.

Driving tours in these iconic vehicles will include Coker Tire and the International Towing and Recovery Museum Hall of Fame and Museum in Chattanooga, as well as the Coke Ovens Museum in Dunlap, Tenn., on Saturday.

The crowd-pleasing classics will be based at the Chattanooga Choo Choo.
