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 or 1957 Classic Thunderbird.

We encourage all of our members to also join CTCI. As a member of CTCI, you will receive the Early Bird, a bi-monthly magazine on Thunderbirding, where you will find valuable help on restoration, maintenance, history, activities and general interest articles all focused on the Classic 1955, 1956 and 1957 T-Birds.

Our club was incorporated in 1976 as the Classic Thunderbird Club of Dayton. In 1996, with the membership expanding to Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, the name was changed to Ohio Valley Early Birds (OVEB).

Club functions are usually held once a 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, weekend excursions, 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.

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