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. The current meeting spot is the Red Bird Cafe in Dayton Indiana at 6:00pm on the first Tuesday of the month.


A Word From the President

LIHAC Members,
Hopefully you all have by now had a chance to get the car out of mothballs and enjoyed a few rides. Keep in mind that these down periods need to be followed with paying attention to things that might fail. Failures can be an annoyance or catastrophic. So pay attention. Taking short little trips to local events, or with the club let’s you sort things out and catch issues before they become serious. I have had several occasions when things like loose lug nuts were spotted by others and I am thankful that they spoke up and let me know. Gas leaks are not only an annoyance, they can be much more serious, so take care. Well now that we have all had our mandatory safety talk, take action and then take a ride.
Keep it between the ditches,
Joe Goss
