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 have re-starting our dinner meetings beginning in May 2021. Check out below for the latest meeting time and place.


A Word From the President

LIHAC members,
We are seeing some signs or normalcy. The last three meetings have had over forty members in attendance. The lady’s and men’s events about half that which makes sense. Rain dwindled the Dog and Suds to low numbers, but we always have been rain sensitive. The next meeting November 2 at Arni’s at Market Square will have our elections. Bob Burkhalter is chairman of the election committee, so be ready to do your part and say yes , should he call.
Also, be on the watch out for upcoming freezing weather and have protection ready. Also you might run any alcohol containing gas out and find some non-alcohol containing gas loaded for storage. The other option is to use Stabil or a similar product to help preserve the gasoline thru the winter. If the battery condition is in doubt, charge it up( maybe with a good fall drive.) Then with all those worries behind, remember to join in LIHAC events thru the winter to keep you in tune for next year’s LIHAC fun.
Keep it between the ditches,
President Joe Goss
