Meetings were originally held once a month at the home of one of the members, and it was more or less a family gathering. Dues collected at that time were pooled at the end of the year, and usually spent on a party for the members. The family theme still runs through the club with many Husband and Wife memberships, including their children. It is not uncommon to see teenagers at the meetings, and they get involved with many of our activities.      FOR INFO ON CURRENT MEETINGS CLICK HERE

Yesteryear car club was formed in Shelton, WA in 1967 by people interested in keeping alive the history and preservation of vintage and older automobiles. Members didn’t necessarily have to have an old car, but many did. Charter Members were: Howard and Pat Austin, John and Evelyn Hubbard, John & Marge Temple, Winston Asche and Gene and Sherry Myers. Interestingly enough the Austins and Myers are still active in the club.


Other early members included Don and Mary Kay Pauley, Rod and Carolyn Olsen, and Art and Ernie Nicklaus to name a few.
