Smoky Mountain Classic Thunderbird Club – East Tennessee

We are a Classic Thunderbird Club in the Knoxville area of East Tennessee. Our first meeting was held in November 2007. There are around 50 active members and we are looking to grow that number with folks that have an interest in the Classic Thunderbirds (1955-1957). While owning a Classic Thunderbird is desirable it is not mandatory. Only an interest in the Classic Birds is required.

Our meetings are held on the third Thursday of every other month beginning with January (odd months) at 7:00 at Calhoun’s in Maryville.

Throughout the year, on a monthly basis, numerous driving events occur in and around the Knoxville, TN area. They include technical sessions, tours, rally’s, overnighters, Cruise in’s, concours, parades, community service, eating out and parties.

If you are interested in enjoying your Classic Thunderbird with folks of a like mind please contact with us as we are anxious to have you join the club and participate in the many activities that range from driving events, restoration, shows and socializing.

Our Officers are:

President: Frank Navratil
Vice President: Rick Rawe
Secretary: Peggy Cardwell
Treasurer: Bob Bly

For more information about meetings and activities, please contact Frank Navratil at email or by phone at VOL-458-0935 (865-458-0935).
