Ye Olde Car Club

In 1962 a group of local car enthusiast formed the Tri-Cities Horseless Carriage Club. However, some of the vehicles in the club didnít meet the criteria for the National charter. As a result, the Ye Olde Car Club of the Tri-Cities was officially chartered in 1963 to preserve and maintain motor vehicles of historical value and to serve as an accurate and technical source of information concerning historical automobiles for the benefit of its members as well as the general public.

Ye Olde Car Club is headquartered in Tri-Cities, Washington and has members primarily from the Richland, Kennewick, Pasco, and West Richland communities and members from the western states. Membership includes over 150 families and individuals, with nearly 400 antique, classic and collectable automobiles and is the largest car club in southeast Washington.

Aside from regular monthly meetings, club members participate in frequent community and social events, driving tours both short and long, and a variety of activities each month.  Annual dues are only $20, with the only membership requirement being an appreciation for historical automobiles.

As an old car club, we are also there to guide you when you decide to buy an old car, help you to restore it, share stories about your car, and provide whatever it takes to see that owning an old car is an enjoyable experience for you!  Our club has among it's members a wealth of knowledge about the auto industry that we would love to share with you.  Some of our members usually can be found at the 2500 Queensgate Sterlings Restaurant in Richland at 7am on Wednesdays.  Come and say "Hi".  You'll be surprised at how much fun can be had for only $20 a year!
