Our History

The Lake Erie Region of the Antique Automobile Club of America was formed in November 1952.  Rudy Ribbeck's Auto Service on Old Bailey Avenue at Seneca Street was used for meetings.  During the summer of 1952, a group of old car lovers would go to parades, etc., and soon the required minimum of 15 members was achieved in order to petition the National AACA for a Region.

The following individuals were part of the original 15 members:
William M. Cryan, Caryl Paul, Garold Seifert, Dorothy Cryan, Howard Holmes, Dr. Robert Britt, Rudy Ribbeck, Franklin Schweitzer, Stephen Schimolski, Frank Stabell.

The Club was first organized under the name of Lake Erie Region of Western New York, and three years later it was changed to Lake Erie Region of AACA.
