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.

Our club has dinner and a formal meeting the first Tuesday of every month around 6pm at Arni's in Market Square,  Lafayette, Indiana. Please contact us if you are interested in attending or speaking at a meeting or becoming a member of LIHAC.


A Word From the President

LIHAC members,
Well we finally have some warm weather . We have the national lockdown expired. As of this writing, we are still waiting for information on the state unlocking of our society. No matter what is done on the state and local level, it is up to us to figure out how to have safe times together. We appear to be at little risk getting out and driving our cars, as long as they are reliable. The key is to be able to maintain social distancing. If you question your cars ability to maintain drivability, then only use it very locally to work things out. Normally I would say drive it and get the bugs out, but now we need to mitigate some risks. For our driving events, bring a well sorted out car or drive modern. We are a social club and now more than ever, we need to stress that aspect, over the cars. If someone has car issues , don’t be unsafe in helping out. Take your time and take action in a safe social distancing manner. See you virtually and down the road. Keep it between the ditches.
President Joe Goss
