We are passionate car enthusiasts who live and breathe American classic cars.
Our mission in life is to provide an environment for other like minded car aficionados to savour and enjoy their American classics, without the rules and restrictions that seem to dog other areas of everyday lives.
If you are an American classic car owner who feels the same as we do, we invite you to take a small journey through our site to see if this sounds like you. If you like what you see, and want to be involved, then send in a membership application.
If you are already a member, check out the events page to see if the next event is one you want to participate in, or join us in the forums for club talk and discussions.
Latest ACCCA club activities
TOY RUN – 1ST DECEMBER 2014
With the Toy Run just the night after our Christmas party which we held on Sunday the 30th November it was a great opportunity to clean up the rest of the food left over, and for most of us the last chance to get together before the hectic run down to Christmas.
With a dozen or so cars turning up from all over Auckland it was a pretty good muster considering that it is quite a job getting away from work and then battling the evening rush hour getting right across town to the Eastern Suburbs. A couple of us from the eastern side of town were able to get to the park reasonably early which enabled the club to stake it’s claim to the usual piece of turf on the western edge and mark out the area we needed before the bulk of the cars arrived.
Because the weather this year was looking pretty good a big crowd was expected and sure enough by six o’clock the park was getting pretty chocker.
CHRISTMAS AT THE MANUKAU LIVE STEAMERS - Nov 30, 2014
Our annual Car Club Christmas party this year was held at a venue we had not visited for quite a number of years. In fact only the old hands in the club would remember the venue in Mangere, off Robertson Road, the home of the model steam locomotives and their enthusiastic supporters.
It is a great spot to hold a car club outing, with a big grassy reserve immediately adjacent to the Manukau Live Steamers railway track and clubhouse. An ideal spot to pitch our tents and plenty of space for the cars to be displayed.
GIBBS FARM – RURAL SCULPTURED ART – November 2
Of all the recent runs we have done as a club, the run to the Gibbs Farm would have to be up there with the best. Not only did we have a great number of members show up for the run, 24 cars in fact, but the day turned out to be a great outing for all sorts of reasons. Firstly there was the delightful run through the rural West Coast of Auckland, then the chance to inspect first hand the very special amphibious vehicles that Alan Gibbs produces world wide, followed by the viewing of the sculptured art spread all over his spectacular property on the Kaipara Coast.
KAIAUA VIA HUNUA – A DAY IN THE SUN Oct 12th 2014
The first glimpse of the Thames estuary as you roll through the countryside high above the coast is a great sight to see and on a sunny day it is picture perfect. So it was for a dozen or more cars that made up the contingent of this Sundays run and with Spring definitely in the air and the sun shining it was perfect classic touring weather and we were all making the most of it.
The day started as usual with us all meeting up at the Papakura Pitstop, on the southern motorway which is good for a coffee and a chat before hitting the road. This time the day’s outing had a twist to it with a visit to the Hunua Falls but not before a great cruise through the back of Drury along a sealed but “off the beaten track” road called Ponga Road, that took us through some delightful rural countryside before dropping us neatly not far from Hunua township. Just a hop skip and jump down the road to the Hunua falls where we all had a chance to walk the short distance to the falls and admire the fine native bush and take a look at a real waterfall. A chance also for a quick pitstop for those with Woolworth bladders and then on our way winding through the back of Paparimu and on through to Highway 2 at Mangatawhiri, where we picked up a part of the old State Highway that had been discarded following the roading upgrade some years ago.
