Since its inception there has been something about the sight, sound, and feel of the automobile that stirs the imagination and the desire to experience the freedom of the open road. Whether it’s the clatter of the single cylinder brass era car or the heavy thumping of big block Detroit muscle cars that fuels the addiction, we are all kindred spirits. Vintage cars, trucks, buses, and motorcycles are our bond.
Since 1935, AACA has had one goal: The preservation and enjoyment of automotive history of all types. From National Meets and Tours to Regional events, AACA is here to bring enthusiasts together through exciting National activities, friendship, and Antique Automobile… an award winning 100-page full color magazine.
We have something for everyone. You don’t have to own a vehicle or know how to turn a wrench. You can be involved at any level you wish. Whether it’s joining our judging teams, doing research in our vast library, or taking the family through the excitement of a National Meet or Tour, the possibilities are endless.
So, spend time with us and others sharing your passion. Join up. It's less than the price of a tank of gas and lasts all year. Then check out our Regions and Chapters to find one near you. Get behind the wheel of AACA. We know you’re going to love the ride.
SPEEDSTER is the Antique Automobile Club of America's monthly e-newsletter, containing updates from the club and library, member contributions and stories, antique auto trivia, meet & tour details, interesting industry articles and much more.

AACA Sponsored Tours:
AACA Reliability Tour
The Reliability Tour is held during even-numbered years and is for brass era vehicles manufactured in 1915 and earlier. All AACA recognized vehicles of that vintage are permitted to take part. The Reliability Tour was designed many years ago to test the reliability of earlier vehicles.
AAA Glidden Tour
The AAA Glidden Tour is sponsored in alternating years by the AACA and the Veteran Motor Car Club of America (VMCCA) The AACA hosts this tour during odd-number years, and the VMCCA hosts it during even-numbered years. Vehicles manufactured in 1942 and earlier qualify to take part in this event. This event is the most prestigious of all antique automobile tours in the nation. Originally held annually from 1904 until 1913, it has been recreated by a number of hosts in different parts of the country. The AAA Glidden Tour remains the largest and most traditional of our Tours.
AACA Founders Tour
The Founders Tour is sponsored annually for all vehicles, except race vehicles, manufactured from 1932 through a production year 25 years prior to the year of the tour. The Founders Tour was established to honor the founders of AACA, and was designed to permit the use of newer vehicles on an AACA Tour.
AACA Vintage Tour
The Vintage Tour is held during odd-numbered years and is for vehicles manufactured in 1931 or earlier. The Vintage Tour was designed to provide an additional touring opportunity for earlier vehicles.
AACA Sentimental Tour
The Sentimental Tour is a National Tour to supplement the already existing Reliability and Vintage Tours. It will be sponsored during even numbered years and is for vehicles manufactured from 1928 through 1958, except for race vehicles.
AACA Divisional Tour
Each year, a Divisional Tour may be scheduled in each of our four geographical divisions, i.e. Eastern, Central, Southeastern and Western. These tours are of shorter duration than our traditional five-day tours. The hosting Region or Chapter is free to decide which vehicles are eligible to participate, so long as all vehicles are of production year 25 years prior to the year of the tour and are recognized AACA vehicles.
