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 are re-starting our dinner meetings beginning in May. The current meeting spot is the Red Bird Cafe in Dayton Indiana at 6:00pm


A Word From the President

LIHAC members:  While still following CDC guidelines of social distancing and wearing masks are getting harder for us all to maintain.  Car outings are relatively easy ways to maintain some safety measures. Our meetings that are soon approaching will be similar to going out to eat. So let us know if any concerns, but plan on joining and resurrecting the fun of our hobby.

Keep it between the ditches!!

LIHAC President.  Joe Goss
