Cherokee Valley Region To Host Antique Automobile Club Of America Fall Meet

Saturday, January 19, 2013

The Antique Automobile Club of America has chosen the Cherokee Valley Region of  Cleveland to host the 2013 Southeastern Fall Meet. Hundreds of antique cars will begin coming into the Cleveland area on Sept. 19 and 21.   The cars will be displayed on Sept. 21.  

AACA members from around the United States will attend this Fall Meet. This national meet will bring thousands of visitors to the Bradley/Cleveland community.  The community is invited to enjoy viewing vehicles that are restored to “as they left the factory.”   To display a vehicle in this National Meet, you must be a member of the AACA.

In 2008, the Cherokee Valley Region hosted the National SE Fall Meet. Three hundred and twenty cars from all over the U.S.A. came to be displayed and judged for the meet. Seven thousand spectators are estimated to have been on the show field at Westwood Baptist Campus on Georgetown Road.

The Cherokee Valley Region of the Antique Automobile Club of America was charted in February of 1977.  The region was the sixth region to be charted in Tennessee for the AACAQ.  In 2013, there are 400 chapters and regions, with over 60,000 members of the national organization.
