Since the begining there has been something about the sight, sound, and feel of the automobile that stirs the imagination and the desire to experience the freedom of the open road. Whether it’s the clatter of the single cylinder brass era car or the heavy thumping of big block Detroit musclecars that fuels the addiction, we’ve all got a common interest. Classic and vintage cars, trucks, buses, and motorcycles are what this car club is about.
We’re glad you found our group. Stay and “nose” around our website. We have something for everyone. You don’t have to own a vehicle or know how to turn a wrench. You can be involved at any level you wish. Whether it’s joining our social events, going on driving tours with our group or just being a part of the San Diego car club scene, the possibilities are endless.
So, spend time with us and others sharing your automotive interests. Join up, it costs less than the price of a tank of gas and lasts all year. And check out our San Diego Regions AACA to find our why we think it is the foremost car club in the area. It’s about the cars, people and getting out behind the wheel. We know you’re going to love the ride.
SAN DIEGO REGION AACA ANNUAL BANQUET – November 07, 2021
This year’s Banquet will be at the HANDLERY HOTEL, 950 Hotel Circle North, San Diego, CA 92108, who provided us such a fine party in 2019. The “Social Hour” starts at noon; lunch is served at 1:00 pm. As the Banquet is now a daytime event, we are encouraging everyone to drive their antique vehicles. We will have a dedicated parking area. Since the Banquet is the Club’s only formal event, we are encouraging everyone to wear either their vintage outfits or
semi-formal outfits. There will be a cash bar in our room. The menu choices are Santa Maria Tri-Tip (a marinated, grilled tri-tip), Miso-Glazed Salmon, or Vegetarian. The cost for the Banquet this year is $25.00 per person.
To encourage everyone to RSVP early, the charge for those registering after November 2 or at the door is $35.00 per person – checks ONLY. NO CASH will be accepted. If you pay at the door the only meal choice available will be Vegetarian.
Make all checks payable to “AACA San Diego” and send them to John Boyd, 1201 Vista Capitan Dr, El Cajon, CA 92020, with your registration form and meal choices. If you have any questions, please email me at [email protected] or John at [email protected]: There is a charge for hotel parking that you will need to pay when leaving. We have arranged for discount parking; pick up your coupon in the dining room before you leave.
Don’t forget to dress up, and plan to have a good time! We always do!
(Note that the meal is complimentary for past region presidents, charter members, and honorary members.)

The annual club get-together at the Cajon Classic Cruise on August 11, 2021 was a great opportunity to get our cars out on community display, to see our friends again and to enjoy a summer afternoon. Many thanks go to Art and Phyllis Cottee for organizing the event and arranging for food and drinks. The Zemciks won the Best of Show trophy for their 1957 Rolls Royce, well deserved for an amazing restoration.
