Director's Welcome


Welcome to the official website of the Spirit of St. Louis Region of the Classic Car Club of America. Founded in 1985, we are a non-profit organization whose mission is to further the enjoyment, restoration and preservation of distinctive motorcars produced during the period from 1915 through 1948, and foster a spirit of unequalled fellowship among those interested in the pinnacle of automotive design.

Our Region is based in St. Louis, Missouri, and serves 100 members within the Eastern half of Missouri and Southwestern Illinois, in addition to several members from around the country. We are an active club and our events calendar includes monthly dinner outings called Spirit Nights, spring and fall driving tours to places of local interest, an annual picnic, and other social events throughout the year. Our bi-monthly newsletter, Spark Plug, includes pertinent news, an activities calendar, invitations to upcoming club events, and much more.

Ownership of a Classic automobile is not a prerequisite of membership. We encourage anyone with an appreciation or interest in cars of this era, and the friendship of fellow enthusiasts to consider joining our club.

Come join us...............
