Letter From the President


Welcome to the HCCM website and the world of car appreciation. At least that’s the way I see it. I appreciate everything mechanical, I guess that makes me a simple “old boy.” I appreciate the simplicity and variety of the brass era cars. I appreciate the new technology and I appreciate the human factor. There is no drama ever written that could rival the personalities in the automotive field.

Our Motto

Our Motto is “Rigs That Run,” and they certainly do. Most of us drive our antique and classic cars and most of these fine automobiles get personal attention under the hood. We are “hands-on” folks and enjoy the pleasure of “getting greasy”.
