Hosting a VTCI Regional or International? Here are some tips
to make things go more smoothly.


August 10th 2014 Annual All-Thunderbird Show (non-Sanctioned)

The Buffalo Thunderbird Club's 29th Annual All-Thunderbird Show will be held on Sunday, August 10th. The show will be held at the West Herr Automotive Group’s Resale Center at 5535 Transit Road (Route 78) in Williamsville, New York 14221. (NOTE, the dealership's phone number is 716-689-8900). Williamsville is a suburban area north of Buffalo, NY.

This is a Fun-Fun-Fun non-concours Thunderbird event and it’s open to all model year Thunderbirds. We'll have music provided by one of Western New York's premier DJs, door prizes, goodie bags w/dash plaques for the first 40 registered vehicles, award plaques, a chinese auction, and a 50/50 split club to benefit Cystic Fibrosis. Food and beverages will be available for purchase.

 So, bring a couple lawn chairs and join us for a great day of Thunderbird activity. Vehicles need to be in-place by noon to enable our judging team’s sufficient time to do their work. Pre-registration is $7.00 or $10.00 on the day of our show. For more additional information contact either; Todd Ruth at phone 716-803-1965, or  Gregg Zimmerman: phone 716-907-0147 (before 9PM E.S.T.), or email via email at


VTCI 2015 South Central Regional Arlington, TX

May 14-16, 2015  (sanctioned)

Boots and Birds!

Pack your cowboy boots and bring your Birds to the VTCI South Central Regional Convention in Arlington, TX, the heart of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. (Note: this is a change from the date announced at the VTCI International event in New Orleans. Due to hotel conflicts, this new date is the only possible date for the 2015.)

The Steering Committee of the NTVT is hard at work planning all kinds of fun events for the weekend. We will have the opportunity to take pictures of our beautiful birds in front of AT&T Stadium (where the Cowboys play) and we hope to have a tour of that magnificent facility as well. We are working at providing other fun options in the DFW area, including watching real cowboys drive the Longhorn Herd through the Fort Worth Stockyards on Friday afternoon before enjoying a Bar-B-Que dinner and fun shopping there in the evening. Convention attendees may also schedule a tour of the Frontiers of Flight Museum in Dallas, take a Trolley tour of the route JFK followed on that fateful November day in 1963, or possibly visit Globe Life Stadium, home of the Texas Rangers.

Of course, all of these fun activities will be in addition to the main event going on Saturday on the show field. The hotel has generous parking allotted exclusively for our show cars, and there will be room to park your trailers nearby.

The Sheraton at Arlington Hotel offers an elegant, convenient, and comfortable venue for our stay. You will want to book your rooms early, and you may want to extend your stay so you can go to the nearby Six Flags Over TX Amusement Park or Hurricane Harbor on Sunday after the convention ends. More details on registration, tour costs, and room pricing will follow in the next edition of The Scoop.  

So mark your calendars now for May 14 - 16, 2015. From the Welcome Reception, highlighted by an interactive session called "Winners, Losers and Lugnuts...Things you Auto Know About Car History" from “Prof.” Dan Sublette, to the exciting closing awards banquet which will feature some truly Texas-sized entertainment that will have you boot-scootin’ on the dance floor, the 2015 South Central Regional Convention of the VTCI will be the most fun you can have and still stay legal Further information will be forthcoming in future Scoop issues!
