Ohio Valley Early Birds

Birds Along the River

We are Chapter #68 of the Classic Thunderbird Club International with members located primarily in the Dayton and Cincinnati metropolitan areas of Ohio.

Our membership is open to anyone with an interest in the 1955, 1956 and 1957 Classic Thunderbird.

Our 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).

We currently have about 48 members (including spouses) and the the annual dues are $20.00 per household. Click here to download a membership application.

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 click here or please contact us at info@oveb.org for more information, including the dates, times and locations of upcoming meetings and events.

We look forward to meeting you and hopefully you will be joining our group of Classic Thunderbird lovers.


On Friday the 16th of September two couples from our OVEB club met up with our friends from the Indiana T-Bird club, the Early Birds of Hoosierland (EBOH), for an evening cruise-in parade through the streets of Vevay, Indiana. On Saturday, the OVEB members spent the day in Madison, IN and then attended the annual "On the River Car Show" in Vevay where Duane Johnson and Jim Kaylor from the EBOH club won trophies.

In October join your fellow OVEB club members to learn about aviation history. Even if you've been to the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force you probably haven't seen the newly completed 224,000 square foot fourth building. It will house more than 70 aircraft in four galleries. We'll end the day with dinner at Giovanni's Restaurant in Fairborn, OH.
