Help The Rosemary Clooney House add Rosemary and Dante's historic Thunderbird to the house's collection.

Dante was riding in this thunderbird when he stopped at a redlight at the corner of Canon Drive and Little Santa Monica and saw his "Rosella" for the first time in many years... and the rest is history.
