About The Club
The Antique Automobile Club of America, based in Hershey, PA. ("The Sweetest City on Earth"), was started way back in 1935 with just 14 members. It's now an international organization in every state and 50 other countries with 50,000 members and 400 local clubs. It's goal is to preserve and enjoy automotive history and vehicles of all types including cars, trucks, motorcycles, race cars and even amphibians. Frequent local and national events are held. Membership benefits include a bi-monthly, slick, full-color, 98 page magazine, called Antique Automobile, an online monthly newsletter, called Speedster, online help forums, free admission to the AACA Museum, as well as participation eligibility in many tours and shows. Annual national dues are just $40 per household, plus our $20 per household local dues. Sounds like a lot but it's not when your old car benefits. The Villages Region, chartered in 2010, requires that you be a resident of The Villages (a private retirement community). You must also be a national member. Ownership of a vehicle more than 25 years old (restored or original) is not required, just interest in automotive history, design, mechanics or driving enjoyment. Simply fill out the membership application(s) and mail them in.
