The purpose of the Veteran Motor Car Club of America is to encourage preservation, restoration, and use of antique and historically significant automobiles. This is not a military Veteran’s organization, the veterans in our name are the cars, not people. Our specialty is touring events, where we drive our cars to interesting places, meeting new people and visiting old friends along the way. We have fun while everyone gets to see, hear, and enjoy old cars driving on our highways.
On our touring events, original preserved or restored cars 25 years or older are generally welcome — though some of our events are restricted to specific car types or eras. Check on our menu bar above for information about upcoming tours and the perennial events we offer.
Our most famous touring event is the Revival AAA Glidden Tour for pre-WWII motor vehicles. We host this tour on even years, sharing odd year hosting with the Antique Automobile Company of America (AACA). The AAA Revival Glidden Tour is usually held in the fall. It is now accompanied by the Chrome Glidden Tour which caters to newer collector cars.
VMCCA also provides Gold Award of Excellence judging for tour cars. Our judging system carefully considers the originality, quality, and preservation features of your collector car. It is offered as an optional service at most national events. VMCCA also presents an array of special annual awards to tour vehicles and participants at our annual Winter meeting.
We have an award winning bi-monthly publication: The Bulb Horn. This color magazine has been published continuously by the VMCCA for over 75 years. In it, you will find many historical articles about old cars, mixed with fascinating personal stories about their owners.
If you like old cars and love to see them driven, we suggest you look into the VMCCA. You can join our club on-line or by mail, just click on the “Join or Renew” link on the menu bar.
