Show us pictures of your kids/grandkids enjoying the antique car hobby!

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone!

 

AACA's Junior Member publication, Wheels, is looking for ways to liven up its content for kids. Inspired by a recent thread on the forums, we would like to include a section with pictures of children enjoying the old car hobby, whether it's sitting behind the wheel of their parents'/grandparents' favorite ride or helping out with grandpa or grandma's latest restoration. Children featured in Wheels will receive a complimentary copy of the magazine. If you think you have a great photo for the magazine, please feel free to share it here or email it to the editor, Matthew Hocker via: mhocker@aaca.org 

 

In order for a photograph to be featured in Wheels, we will need the following:

1. Your permission to publish your photograph in Wheels.

2. Your child/grandchild's name (full name or first name)

3. Your child/grandchild's age

4. Your child's state of residence

5. A brief description of the photograph (ie: make and model year of car, description of what they are doing, etc.)

 

If you have a cool story associated with the photograph or enjoying the hobby with your child/grandchild, we would also be open to featuring your story as its own article! 

 

Find out more:

If you have any questions about our Junior Membership, Wheels, etc. please contact Matthew Hocker at mhocker@aaca.org or by phone (Mon.-Fri. 8 AM-4 PM EST) via the following number: 717-534-2082

Feel free to use any picture you would like. My Grandson David. He is 10 years old and lives in NY.

Second photo: 2017 at the Simeone Museum a good way to end a weekend in Philadelphia.

Third photo. 2017 Pound Ridge NY Car show. David with the Corvette go-Kart he built with his Dad. His Dad's Nova in the backround

Cute pups! My pit mix Patsy loves to ride around in the convertible with me. I wish I had a pic! She sits right next to me. I sit on her leash to make sure she doesn’t go anywhere, but it’s not even necessary. Haha

DSCF4657.JPG                                                                                              Grandson at 4, ripping his first wheel off a tire. I missed the photo of the exact moment, but the expression on his face is burned in my memory forever. He has enough parts to build his own Model A Ford chassis now. Bob

My son liked my 1970 Plymouth GTX, but didn't turn out to be a "car guy".
