The Westerly-Pawcatuck Region was chartered with the AACA in 1966 to helppromote the enjoyment and preservation of antique automobiles in the Eastern Connecticut and Rhode Island area. Monthly meetings are held as noted throughout the year. Our meetings are open to all. Visitors and prospective members are encouraged to attend. Ownership of an automobile is NOT REQUIRED, although membership in the national organization (Antique Automobile Club of America) is a requirement for membership in the Region. A listing of AACA events and membership information can be found HERE.
Club Activities Never Slow Down!
Members own both domestic and foreign makes representing more than 80 years of the automobile in America. We attend cruise nights, car shows, parades and other automobile-related activities. Annually we schedule several weekend trips to out of state shows in New England and New York and we spend a full week at Hershey, PA every fall. Meetings feature several speakers each year and technical help is always available to members through our Gas Lighters Program.
Gaslight Repairs Crew is always ready to assist members!
Dave and Charlie discussing Michele's new 1951 Buick. The Gaslighters advised Charlie on his restoration plan. See below for links to two blog postings about this process!
Six members joined the Gaslighters crew to help Dave install his new lift. Tom is seen here making final adjustments. Dave and Pat treated each helper with a fantastic steak dinner! I hope he has another big project waiting in the wings.
