15-Time Winner of the Golden Quill Award
For many years, Krause Publications’ Old Cars Weekly has brought recognition to numerous publications in the old car hobby. Clubs enter their magazines and newsletters for consideration and are honored by the selection with a certificate and recognition in Old Cars Weekly. The annual Golden Quill Award continues to be a source of pride for their Editors. Members are pleased they belong to a “winning” club.
The EarlyBird magazine of the Classic Thunderbird Club International has been awarded this honor 15 times for the years 1996, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016 and 2017.

It is not easy to win this recognition each year as the publication must show continuous improvement. Story selection and content is another factor that needs attention, since competition between club publications seems to become stiffer each year. According to Gerald Perschbacher, Golden Quill Judge, a winning publication must fulfill the following:
- Meets the needs of club members
- Is consistently high quality in design and content
- Offers a balance in content (news, features, technical, etc.)
- Presents fresh and creative material that advances the hobby
- Is a good-will ambassador for the club
- Is visually attractive and interesting
If your chapter would like to submit your publication for consideration of this award, please see the instructions and tips at the Old Cars Weekly web site.
