We are the oldest car club in Kingsport, TN. In 2009 we
celebrated our 35th Anniversary. We are a non-profit organization. Our
membership generally averages around 70 members. Club members' cars
include antiques, street rods, 50's and 60's mild customs and classics.
You do not have to actually own a car to be a member, although most are
expecting to own or build a rod, custom, etc. We meet once a month, on
the second Thursday, at Golden Corral Restaurant on Eastman Rd. Most
members eat at around 6:30 p.m., and the meeting starts as soon as the
meal is finished. After the meeting we move to the parking lot for
lengthy bs'ing, and bench rod building.
Our major activities each year are our annual Benefit
Cruise-In and Wilderness Trail Rod Run. The Cruise-In is held on Friday
evening at the Kingsport Town Center at the corner of Fort Henry Drive
and Memorial Blvd. in Kingsport , TN. It is
followed on Saturday by The Wilderness Trail Rod Run, held on Main Street
in Kingsport, TN at the Historic Train Station. These activities are held
during Memorial Day weekend in May of each year. All donations at the
Benefit Cruise-In, are donated to charity. Those
have been going to the Ronald McDonald House in Johnson City, TN.
As a club, we try to hold one or two picnics each year, and
usually a cruise to an interesting location.
The clubs major charity is Ronald McDonald House in Johnson
City, TN but the club also donates money to other charities as needs
