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 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.

OVEB Notes:

On Sunday, August 5th, a large group of OVEB members met at for food and fun at Cabana on the River! This west-side hotspot along the banks of the Ohio River provided a casual, fun, friendly gathering. After our meal, those members attending the upcoming CTCI Convention in Knoxville, met to work out the caravanning arrangements.

We have a record twenty members registered to attend the 2018 CTCI International Convention in Knoxville, TN from August 15th thru 19th. Two caravans are headed to Knoxville, one leaving on Tuesday and the other on Wednesday. Registration for the convention is now closed, but you can learn about the event on the CTCI website click here to go to the CTCI website.
