Ohio Valley Early Birds

Thunderbirds at Cincinnati Museum Center

Classic Ford Thunderbird Car Club

We are Chapter #68 of the Classic Thunderbird Club International (CTCI) with members located primarily in the Dayton and Cincinnati metropolitan areas of Ohio. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in the 1955, 1956 and 1957 Classic Thunderbird.

Club meetings are usually held each month on the weekends at various locations around the tri-state. Our members enjoy a variety of activities and functions throughout the year including car shows, tours and driving our cars (weather permitting).

If you live in our area, we would love to have you attend one of our functions. It's a great way to get acquainted prior to making the commitment to join.  To see a complete list of our activities throughout the year go to our schedule page or contact us at index info file for more information.

We look forward to meeting you and hopefully you will be joining our group of Classic Thunderbird lovers. To download a membership application click here.


The weather turned sunny and warm for the 40th Annual Sharonville Car Show. Five of our members brought their T-Birds and enjoyed the hundreds of other cars in attendance. A few more members joined us for lunch at the Blue Goose Saloon.

May 21st has been designated Thunderbird Appreciation Day by all three International Thunderbird clubs. They ask everyone to take their cars out and show them off. We are asking Ohio Valley Early Bird members to join in the fun by driving your T-Bird to the Promont House Museum in Milford for an informative hands-on car prep clinic and to tour this historic Ohio Governor's mansion.
Dinner will be at the Schoolhouse Restaurant in Camp Dennison. Please see our schedule page for more info.
