The Georgia Regional Group was chartered in 1969, and currently has in excess of 100 members. Most members own at least one car and many have several. There are show cars that have undergone total restoration and win awards. And there are others that are “drivers” to be simply enjoyed for what they are — old Fords.
Many of our members’ drive their cars on our club’s old-car functions such as the day-tours, picnics and even to meetings. Our tours are planned well in advance and are advertised in our newsletter, The Running Board. These include trips to nearby scenic and tourist sites; picnics at area attractions (such as the Great Old Time Picnic at Lake Allatoona); attendance at area old-car shows; and at least one overnight, 150-mile + trip each fall to an interesting or historical site.
This club is about enjoying, driving and showing off our cars. Members’ autos range from pampered show cars to vehicles that are driven cross country. Some cars have won numerous trophies, others are projects in the works, most are somewhere in between.
