BNTR History

The Brass-Nickel Touring Chapter (BNTC) was chartered originally as a non-geographical chapter of the North Carolina Region on October 12, 1997 with 63 charter members. On August 22-27, 1999 the BNTC hosted the 1999 AACA Vintage Tour, which is for cars manufactured in 1927 or earlier. This five-day hub tour was based in Fuquay-Varina North Carolina.


On February 8, 2001, the National AACA Board of Directors approved the conversion of the Brass-Nickel to a non-geographical region!
