The International Thunderbird Club, the ONLY club in the world whose common goal is to preserve and enjoy all model years of the Ford Thunderbird through family fellowship, local club shows and tours, convention seminars, specific model year help, parts location through endorsed vendors, annual meetings and an award winning bi-monthly magazine: The Thunderbird Script.

Come on in and look what we are all about!

 

Hello fellow Thunderbirder!

Since you are reading this you must be like me and share an interest in Ford’s most iconic model, the Thunderbird! You may like the classic version from ’55 or bought a ’66 Flairbird brand new. Perhaps you grew up with an ’83 Aerobird in the garage or are enjoying the classic lines and late model comfort with a 2005 Retrobird. Personally, I am a “bookend” Thunderbirder with ’57 and ’03 Thunderbirds. It doesn’t matter what year you like (or even if you own one!) you are part of the Thunderbird family and are welcome here.

The ITC is always there to answer any questions you have. So go ahead and reach out to any of us on the Club Info > Officers and Advisors menu item above.

I look forward to the time when we can meet and chat about your Thunderbird in person.

Hey everyone. I just ordered some taillight LED-Bulbs for my 69 Bird.

In my opinion the red flashing is not bright enough, especially for German Streets where u normally have to flash yellow.

So does someone have Experience with such Led Bulbs? I've read something of Burning Cars cuz of low Quality Led's?

I hope all of you are looking forward to the ITC Convention in Harrisburg PA in about 12 days.
Although John and I cannot be there this year I have been scratching my pea pickin brain trying to find a way I can participate in this fantastic annual event. And I think I have found a way. Some of you know, but most of you don't, but I am a Jewelry Designer, In 2014 I Designed several pieces for the Ladies that attended that years convention. Well I must say I was thrilled at the response I received. Every piece was gone.
So this year in my absence I have made a lovely Bracelet & Earrings set just for one special Lady. All I ask is that whoever win this send a picture of you wearing it.
I hope you love it as much as I love making it.
And I'll be that fly on the wall at the Banquet, so FEED ME!!! 😄😄

Hagerty Insurance Top five Ford Motor Company designs

1.1965 Ford Mustang Fastback Coupe : The convertible Mustang was the glamour ride but the fastback was the real beauty. As hard as Ford tried in 2005 to recapture the magic of the first-generation Mustang, park a ’65 next to the ’05 and it’s clear that the granddads of the people who styled the latest Mustang knew a thing or two themselves about car design.

2.1955 Ford Thunderbird : The 1955-57 T-Birds are generally regarded as the classic Thunderbirds, and even among those years there’s a definite pecking order. Among design geeks, the ’55 is usually the favorite because it is the simplest and the least adorned. The ’56 grew a rear mounted spare tire and the ’57 got bigger fins and a larger grille. The ’55 however, was just right in every respect. A true classic.

3.1949 Ford : The ’49 Ford was the first all-new design from Ford after WWII. It was worth the wait. Ford stylists clearly knew how much was riding on this all-important first new car since 1941, and they delivered. A smooth, modern envelope design that dispensed with the separate fenders of the 1941 Ford, it was clean and very attractive.

4.1941/ 1961 Lincoln Continental : OK, we cheated: These are really two separate cars, but we couldn’t decide between them. The ’41 was probably the apex of elegant pre-war design for Ford (the lovely waterfall grille is still a design feature on modern Lincolns) and the ’61 might just be one of the greatest pieces of post-war automotive design. In fact, the influence of the ’61 still shows up from time to time in Ford concept cars, and customizers never seem to tire of it.

5.2005 Ford GT : Granted, this wasn’t a new design; it was actually based on a race car that was already 40 years old at the time. Nevertheless, the sheer gumption of launching a state-of-the-art supercar with the styling of a classic race car was about the nerviest thing that the blue oval people have ever done, and we salute them for it. So, for that matter, does the collector car market. Ford GTs became instant collectibles

Folks
It's with mixed feelings that Allison Jordan Jackson and I spend our last night with Margaret, our 1964 Worlds Fair Thunderbird.
She will depart for Auburn, Indiana tomorrow.
She is scheduled for the Auctions America Labor Day sale.
We enjoyed her a bit, but not enough. When we discovered her World's Fair heritage, we stopped driving her.
We purchased her as an investment. Now we get to see what the market will bear.
Our 1986 Zimmer QuickSilver will be auctioned as well.
We are taking suggestions for what to put in the garage next.
