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.
