Antique & Classic Car Club of Canada Upper Canada Region
About The Antique & Classic Car Club of Canada Upper Canada Region
In the early days of the Club they did not have a regular place to meet. The Inaugural Meeting took place at the Coca Cola plant in Kingston Ontario on Railway Street. Later the Meetings were held at Member's Homes, they would take turns each Month. The Ladies were always involved in the Club as they are today. The Ladies would do extra things before the Meetings, they made the banners for the Meetings and the Snacks. The A.A.C.A. was around first, so someone came up with the idea of a Canadian Car Club, which became A.C.C.C.C. and Upper Canada Region was born. Our " Founding Fathers" are pictured on this page, except for one person who did not make the photo shoot.
The back row standing left to right: Earl Reynolds, Don MacDonald (Secretary at this time), Royce Wilson.
Seated Left to right: Merrill Weekes (1st President) and Ken Vivion, not shown, Bill Charlton. Yes the same Bill Charlton that owned Charlton Motors in Napanee Ontario for many years. These Men, along with their Ladies jumped in with both feet to form our Great Club. Thanks to these Pioneers we had a great start. Some of the originals are gone now but not forgotten by Club Members that knew them. They are fondly remembered by the second and possibly the third generation families that joined the Club in the later years. The first Car Tour was call the" Commemoration Tour" and went from London to Brighton. Later the Yearly Tour was renamed "The Tour to Yesteryear". These are just a few little things about our Club. Come out to a Meeting or an Event and help us make more History and get to know us.
