Welcome to the Pre'50 American Auto Club  --  the Pre50AAC

The Pre 50 American Auto Club is the biggest and best club in the UK catering for the lover of classic American cars,
trucks and bikes. It has attained an important place in vehicle preservation in the UK, helping to increase the awareness
and popularity of the classic American vehicle. The club is democratically run and controlled by all its members,
governed by a detailed constitution first adopted in 1967.

The club was founded to promote interest in the older American vehicle and to assist owners by locating parts and
offering advice.  

The club is open to anyone who either owns an American vehicle of any age or who supports the interests and
objectives of the club but does not own an American vehicle.

Black and silver number plates.


There are some changes in the legislation around black and silver number plates.  From the 1st January 2021 only vehicles constructed before 1st January 1980 will be able to display black and silver number plates.  This replaces the current guidance which would have allowed any vehicle over 40 years old to have black and silver plates.


Here's the FBHVC notice on this.
