GNYR’s History

In October 1960, a dedicated group of antique automobile enthusiasts became the Greater New York Region of A.A.C.A. This group, from New York City and Long Island, felt the need of a region in the metro area because traveling to regions in Westchester County and New Jersey was becoming burdensome.

Two years earlier the same group had been turned down by another national organization because of geographic reasons. With a lot of hard work, time and determination, this group petitioned the Antique Automobile Club of America for a charter.

In the year 2010 we celebrated our 50th anniversary as a region of A. A. C. A.
