Welcome to the Chicagoland Thunderbirds Car Club

The Chicagoland Thunderbirds, a chapter of the Vintage Thunderbird Club International (VTCI), was established in 1982 and is an Illinois not-for-profit corporation. We are dedicated to the preservation of the Ford Thunderbird and uniting the owners of these automobiles.  This site has been created to; help expand the awareness of these cars, provide a chance for people to discover the uniqueness in features and styling of the Thunderbird from its creation in 1955, and to share and exchange knowledge about these vehicles.

Have fun exploring the site, learning about the club, what events we have coming up, and explore past events we've hosted and/or took part in.
