Rose City Thunderbirds - Portland Area, OR

The Rose City Thunderbirds was formed in 1973, and became Chapter #51 a year later. Since that time, the club has continued to grow. Currently there are over 95 families on the membership role.

The Rose City Thunderbirds maintains an active schedule, both locally and nationally within CTCI. We conduct tech sessions, tours, dinners, picnics, and business meetings on a regular basis. We have hosted three regional conventions (1981, 1989, and 2003), plus three international conventions (1986 and 1996, and 2008). All six were very successful in terms of attendance and finances. Three of our members have served on the CTCI Board of Directors, all serving as vice president and president. Two of our members have also served as CTCI Secretary for a total of 18 years.

Locally we are one of 33 car clubs in the Northwest Car Collectors Association, holding a car show and swap meet each October. As a club we try to help each other keep our cars not only run-able, but in good, safe condition.

The Rose City Thunderbirds require membership in CTCI as a requirement of membership. Dues are $25 per year with an initiation fee of $5.
