Owners of Ford’s Thunderbird from around the world will be sharing their iconic cars with the public on “Thunderbird Appreciation Day” Sunday, May 20th, 2018. The three large Thunderbird clubs: International Thunderbird Club (ITC), Classic Thunderbird Club International (CTCI) and Vintage Thunderbird Club International (VTCI) are encouraging their members to take their Thunderbirds out, individually or in groups, to places for the general public to see, to learn more about and to just plain enjoy.
With over 4 million Thunderbirds produced by Ford Motor Company from 1955 to 2005, it is still not common to see a Thunderbird on the road today, even later models. This is the reason that the three Thunderbird clubs have agreed on Sunday, May 20th as a day to share their Thunderbirds with the world.
For a vehicle that has been out of production for over a decade, their presence is still felt worldwide. Thunderbird owners can be found all over North and South America as well as Japan, Australia, New Zealand, the Middle East and Europe.
Thunderbird owners are asked to share pictures and stories that occur during Thunderbird Appreciation Day on ITC’s Facebook page. If you are not a Facebook member, you can still share your pictures by emailing to ITC [email protected].
