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.

We normally have a regular meeting including dinner each month.  However due to the Corona-19 scare, monthly meetings are changed. Each month we do something different.  We announce these meetings in advance through our email system.  We plan to go back to regular monthly meetings at a local restaurant as soon as possible.  


A Word From the President

LIHAC members,
While other events may be inserted as weather and healing permits, we are officially scheduling a driving event for Saturday April 24, 2021. It will be the type of event that guest can be invited. Plan on normal social distancing and masks.  Keep the date in your calendar. Many of us in a normal year have paid our annual dues at the club auction or at a club meeting. Obviously this has not been a normal year. Our club budget was in the negative $800. The count for those that have so far paid their dues is behind by 30 memberships. While some expenses will be  variables reflected by how active we are, like how much chicken at the Columbian park pic nic. Other expenses are static like insurance and web fees. So please if you get a notice of dues being owed please take immediate action, so that we can leap forward when weather permits. We have many opportunities to use our cars and getting together in our future, so let’s be ready. Please help the club be fiscally sound to help provide the events in upcoming better days.
Keep it between the ditches
President Joe Goss
