A club for restoring, driving old cars


we love antique cars

The Lafayette Indiana Historic Auto Club is a non-exclusive, mixed social group of people that have a common interest in restoring, preserving, and driving all makes and models of old cars. We currently have over 100 members with more than 400 cars. We enjoy visiting new places, arranging driving tours, and displaying our cars at places like retirement communities where we know people will appreciate seeing them. We welcome families, people of all ages, and walks of life to become members of LIHAC.

Having an old car is NOT a requirement for membership. Dues are currently $15 a year per family.

Our dinner meetings are the first Tuesday each month with dinner at 5:30 and a meeting following dinner.  For information on the meeting place please check the monthly events listing or the Events tab.


A Word From the President

Greetings club members.

Well, August is upon us along with plenty of activities. A few highlights for the month are: Tim Lange's Drive to the Sportsman on August 4th, Don Gosma's Drive on August 18, and the Miller Picnic on August 20th. Refer to the calendar for specific details and other regular scheduled events.

Several members have been passing out fliers that Tim Lange had made for the club. This has resulted in the addition of our newest member, Jeff Beyer a Studebaker fan.

If you haven't been able to attend a meeting recently, we would love to see you back. We have been enjoying some interesting and lively discussions. One is the concern about the club income. The only income we currently receive is through the membership dues. Some of us would like to reinstate the annual winter auction. Take some time and think about this and if it would occur what you might be willing to donate for the good of the club. Think about something that could generate income so that we can continue with a healthy solvent LIHAC.

Until next time,
