New York Early Bird Club


The New York Early Bird Club is a non-profit organization designed to bring together owners and/or enthusiasts of the Ford Thunderbird for the years 1955 through 2005.

We enjoy socializing and exchanging information helpful in the preservation and restoration of our Classic Thunderbirds. Many find the Club a resource for locating and obtaining Thunderbird parts.

The Club was formed in August of 1973 at Saratoga Springs, New York, incorporated in 1974, and is composed of families from the Albany, Catskill and Hudson Valley areas of Eastern New York State. In 2012, the New York Early Bird Club welcomed owners/ enthusiasts of all years of Thunderbirds. Business meetings are held each Spring and Fall. Monthly breakfast get-togethers are held the last Saturday of every month at a local diner.


In addition, each month a specific event is scheduled. Examples include the Club picnic in July and the annual holiday party in December. Rallyes, foliage rides and displays at interesting locales (The Great Escape Fun Park, for example) fill the remaining months.

A periodically published newsletter keeps members informed of upcoming events.

Please feel free to contact any of our officers for more information about our Club.
