Now almost 50 years old. The Kalamazoo Antique Auto Restorers club was founded in 1962 to bring together individuals with a common interest - the restoration, preservation and enjoyment of antique automobiles. Over the past forty years, the club has grown in both size and membership opportunity as the definition of the vintage and collector car has changed. The KAARC welcomes those with similar interests who seek the simple enjoyment of the vintage automobile and the fellowship that surround the activities associated with it.
The mission of the Kalamazoo Antique Auto Restorers Club is to preserve the hobby which is dedicated to the restoration and preservation of antique, veteran and collector automobiles, and by its activity and fellowship, to promote the appreciation and understanding of the history of the motor vehicle.
To celebrate this rich heritage with the public we have two events each year. Our two day winter swap meet held on the first weekend in February at the Kalamazoo County Fairgrounds. And our premier event "The Red Barns Spectacular" held at the Gilmore Car Museum on the first Sat of August. We welcome inquires of individuals, vendors and clubs about these events.
