Mid-Atlantic Thunderbird Club’s purpose is to champion the appreciation of and admiration for all vintages of the Ford Thunderbird. MATC members offer a great deal of technical knowledge on all years of the Ford Thunderbird. MATC members are interested in helping with each other’s projects. This is accomplished at club meetings and at special technical sessions. MATC sponsors or conducts monthly activities, rotating geographic areas in the club’s service area, to minimize driving distances for members as much as possible. The Mid-Atlantic Thunderbird Club’s region includes Southern Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia and West Virginia. MATC’s monthly newsletter and Webpage provides notices of coming events, news of past events, technical tips, and other information of interest to the Ford Thunderbird hobby, as well as for general collectible & special car interest.

In 1993 the Mid-Atlantic Thunderbird Club became one of the Charter Chapters that formed the International Thunderbird Club.

In November 2022 MATC became the 43rd affiliate Chapter of the Vintage Thunderbird Club International.
