South Jersey Region
Antique Automobile Club of America
Since 1966, the South Jersey Region of the Antique Automobile Club of America membership has been committed to sharing our vehicles with the public. It is our goal to see that our classic automobiles are “out and about” at local events for the public to see and enjoy.

Once each year, the South Jersey Region participates in the Harvest Fest Car Show in Elmer, New Jersey where Lew Zane, a past South Jersey Region President, instituted a car show that included antiques, classics, motorcycles as well as military vehicles. We also run a Cruise Night from April through September. We have partnered with Bobbitt Auto of Salem, New Jersey for our 3rd Wednesday of the month Cruise Night. Our Cruise Flyer is posted under Club Events.

Toys For Tots
Each October our club participates in a “Toys for Tots” Cruise Event at Bobbitt Auto. We ask both spectators and those who bring out their antique vehicles to contribute a new unwrapped toy to benefit the “Marine Toys for Tots Foundation”.
Swap Meet and Car Corral
This annual event is held at the Salem County Fairgrounds on the 4th Sunday in March.
It’s the biggest one day swap meet on the east coast, drawing thousands of shoppers and hundreds of vendors each year. It's been held each year for roughly half a century!
If you're a shopper searching for that illusive part, this is must-attend event! If you're a vendor, then this is the event you don’t want to miss as many of our vendors have happily been coming back year after year.
SJRAACA - A Quick Overview
We're always enthusiastically attracting new members. You don't need a classic vehicle to join but simply be interested in the automobile and its heritage. Our membership covers many generations and we include our AACA Junior Members in events in the hope that they will continue to keep the love of our classics alive.
Our club shows in parades, travels to nursing homes and participates in many other regional events.
With over 100 members, we hope to continue the growth of our region. If you are interested in joining or have a question, please contact us and we will do our best to find an answer to your question.
We look forward to seeing you “down the road!”
