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.
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.

Our November meeting featured a presentation by George King III. He and his restoration crew took turns telling us all about the work they did on George's 1901 Orient (see above). For additional photos and videos, you can go to the Metz / Waltham Facebook page and look at postings by Gregg Anderson who documented the event. Under the 'Discussion' heading you scroll down until you see the same photo as above. The postings will follow (about 5 of them).
