The club has already initiated plans for sponsoring a meet next spring in conjunction with the citywide “Old Fashion Days” event. Local Antique Car bugs have participated in this event the past two years as individuals, we hope it will become an annual event bringing in other clubs from the surrounding area. The club will participate in the Armistice Day Parade Nov. 11 this year. Everyone with a car is welcome to join up. This will be in Corinth. The club meets in Corinth every 4th Tuesday night. All Antique Car lovers are invited to stop in anytime.
Magnolia Antique Car Club is a group of car enthusiasts who enjoy getting together to have fun and share ideas. Presently the Club consists of approximately 39 members. The Club meets every fourth Tuesday of each month at Lucy’s in Historic Downtown Corinth, beginning at 6:30 p.m. At the meetings we discuss business as well as upcoming activities and events. We support various local charities with proceeds from our cruise-ins and other fund raising activities. This is a family oriented club with emphasis on fun and fellowship. We invite you to join us at our next Cruise-In or Car Show.
