There are antiques that sit on a shelf. Think Aunt Ida’s fine china or Grandpa’s vintage beer-can collection. Hands off! Admire only. 

But there are other antiques that get exercised regularly. Think, for example, the vintage vehicles owned by members of the Antique Automobile Club of America.

With pandemic restrictions being eased AACA members are venturing out of their garages on a series of vintage vehicle tours such as the recent cruise of the midsection of Tennessee by the Honk, Rattle and Roll Touring Region of the AACA.

“HR&R was founded based on the excitement of traveling new roads, visiting collections, museums, new social events, feeling the freedoms of country roads and socializing with friends who share these feelings,” according to the group’s website. 

“While we are an AACA club, we also take the position that the five touring events a year we hold are the most important experience for our members, rather than other clubs that focus on shows or cruise-ins. We do not require that you drive an antique on our tours. Due to the heat of summer, the chill of spring and potential rains, we feel that it is fine to cruise in newer iron.”

The region staged its first tour in 1998 and notes that using automobiles as originally intended is the best way for the whole family to enjoy antique automobiles.
