9 posts in this topic

Can someone clarify? The activity request card show cars 1932 and older are allowed while the Nov/Dec magazine show cars 1932 and newer are allowed.  Which is it???

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.

For first time tourists, Gettysburg is a great hub for antique car tours.  History, pretty countryside, and fun people in their great antique cars all seeing and learning.  One of the best benefits of AACA membership is the opportunity to see the USA in your antique car (Even if it is a Chevrolet)   We'll see the Gettysburg Region's neighborhood on back roads. We'll see battle fields, Civil War museums, car museums, Amish country, antique stores, good shopping and good food and be in one of the best rolling antique car shows you'll ever participate in.

Once you've experienced a national tour, you'll want to go home and organize a tour of your area and maybe host the 2018 Sentimental Tour for cars 1928 to 1958, that is looking for a host club.

Applications were mailed out - but cannot be returned prior to an April 1, 2017 Postmark.

 

We are going to Gettysburg!

 

I haven't missed a Founders tour yet, and this one should be outstanding.

We got our application on Monday. It is all filled out and ready to be sent on April 1.

This will be our first tour and we are a little nervous and very excited to attend.

P.S. We have booked a room at the host Hotel, so we are ready.

I've registered.  And I understand that the deadline

for the Founders' Tour is a postmark of May 1.

 

For a little enticement, here is a typical Pennsylvania

covered bridge.  One day of the tour will cover

several covered bridges, as that county has at least seven.
