Savannah automobile clubs revving up for August events


SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – Two local car clubs have teamed up to host meetings and events for lovers of antique and classic vehicles throughout the month of August.

The Savannah Region of Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) and Live Oak A’s host monthly and bi-monthly meetings, including an 11:30 a.m. luncheon on the second Wednesday of each month, as well as a whole host of other events.

The Live Oak A’s weekly work session is one of the top events, helping members and non-members keep their Ford Model As in running condition.
