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.
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.
Klingberg was a great event for our club. We had a total of 9 cars making the nearly 80-mile trek to New Britain, CT. Check out all the neat photos in our Gallery Section.

Steve Rossi Returned on June 26th !
Steve Rossi was an even bigger hit this year! His talk was an in depth examination of various myths that pervade the car collecting hobby. One of my favorites was about claims that Henry Ford used packing crates to make the floorboards of Model A cars - never happened! Steve's presentation got everyone so excited that they almost didn't let him leave; he was bombarded with questions and the discussion could have gone on for hours. Thanks so much to Mr. Rossi and all the enthusiastic members who welcomed him!
Two friends and a model A Ford Woodie ... What could be more fun? We had a big turnout for the N. Stonington Agricultural Fair on Sunday, July 15. A complete set of photo are in our gallery section.
