The Association of California Car Clubs consists of thousands of automobile hobbyists throughout the state who are interested in California laws and policies regarding collector automobiles. The ACCC was formed March 16, 1972.
The ACCC is a volunteer organization with regional representatives who represent the interests of individual members and member clubs across the state. Hobby clubs and individuals joining the ACCC contribute to the protection of the hobby and are kept informed of the issues. These representatives form the Board of Directors, serve without pay and are elected from the pool of active auto enthusiasts in this state.
WHAT IS THE FUNCTION OF THE ACCC?
We form the bridge between the automotive enthusiast and our elected officials (who have stated that about 85 percent of their votes are cast on unfamiliar subjects). We are united to serve by informing and educating our members, and by using appropriate channels of communication at all levels of government, as necessary, to protect and preserve the collectible automobile hobby.
Article 8.3, Section 5050. of the California Vehicle Code, authored by the ACCC, states:
"The legislature finds and declares that constructive leisure pursuits by California citizens is most important. This article is intended to encourage responsible participation in the hobby of collecting, preserving, restoring, and maintaining motor vehicles of historical and special interest, which hobby contributes to the enjoyment of the citizens and the preservation of California automotive memorabilia."
