The HCCA Tour Library
An HCCA Member on Tour

A Collection of Antique Automobile Tours

Including a Database of Past Tours & Information

With Tour Planning Guidelines


     In the early years of the automobile industry, Automobile Associations created and issued books for different regions and states to assist drivers going from one location to another (directions, advertisements and points of interest). As vehicles became older and the antique car hobby started, owners began to create tours to enjoy their historic vehicles, promote the hobby and see the local points of interest.

    To save the tour routes created over the years and provide a resource to help individuals who want to create new tours, the HCCA has created this Tour Library. The collection of tours is designed to encourage the creation of new routes in different locations.
