Antique Automobile Club of America celebrates 75th anniversaryMon, 10 May 2010 00:00:00 -0700
The 15 founders of the Antique Automobile Club of America would be proud: The organization's membership has grown to nearly 60,000 since the club launched in 1935.
And to celebrate its 75th anniversary, the AACA will hold a four-day celebration, June 30-July 3, in Louisville, Ky. A car show on the last day will be the spotlight event, and more than 600 vehicles spanning more than a century will be displayed. The 1909 Sears, the 1916 Milburn and the 1929 Essex will be among the featured cars.
Car fans can also experience local attractions, and several tours are planned for the first part of the week, including a Bluegrass trek through Lexington, Ky.
