The Antique Auto Mushers of Alaska is the state's oldest and largest
antique automobile club. This Alaska non-profit corporation is dedicated
to the preservation, restoration, maintenance and enjoyment of antique
automobiles and to the historical and educational aspects of the antique
automobile hobby.

AAMA was founded in late 1961 when a group of antique auto enthusiasts
began meeting at the Northern Lights Service Club on Elmendorf Air
Force Base, just outside of Anchorage. Membership has grown to over 90
members, who enjoy a full schedule of automobile and social events
throughout the year.

The club meets to conduct business on the second Wednesday of each
month (except in December) at Day Break Adult Day Center, 9210 Jupiter
Drive, Anchorage.  Meeting time is 7:00pm October-April and 6:30pm
during the summer, May-September. For directions, go to the
Meetings
page.  AAMA participates in the Anchorage Adopt-A-Road project each
summer and has shows and activities beginning with the annual
Installation of Officers in January, and continuing with the Fur Rendezvous
Parade and Show, the May Early Bird Cruise, the annual Early Summer
Meet, Fourth of July Parades and a host of other events, culminating with
the annual Christmas Party in December.
AAMA Vehicles:
Ownership of an antique or classic automobile is not required for membership in AAMA, but most
members have a vehicle that fits a classification recognized in the hobby. These include four main
groups of vehicles: Antique vehicles are pre-1930 models;  Classic and Production vehicles are
the later models. Exceptionally fine cars of specific makes such as Duesenberg, Rolls-Royce,
Cord, etc. dating from 1930 through 1942 are recognized as Classic. A new group of limited
production luxury vehicles is recognized as Specified Prestige Vehicles. Examples of this class are
the Jaguar Mark IV, Oldsmobile Fiesta and Rolls-Royce.
AAMA History:
Introduction to the AAMA
The AAMA official newsletter, Tinkering Times, is published monthly to inform the members of
coming events, of what has occurred in the recent past and news of our members. It has attracted
national and international attention the last eight years through awards bestowed by the Antique
Auto Club of America. From 1994 through 2003, it received the Award of Excellence , which places
it among the top 15 of more than 400 AACA chapter newsletters. Tom Cresap (editor from
1991-2000 and current editor) received the Prestigious Ann Eady Award, a special award
presented each year to an editor whose service to region or chapter and to AACA as a whole best
exemplifies the spirit of the late Ann Eady, whose work as editor of the Southeastern Region
AACA's award-winning Peachtree Parade touched many individuals. Judging for the Eady award is
done by the Nation Publications Committee, and the winner is announced at the Annual Meeting's
Awards Banquet.
Antique Auto Mushers of Alaska is a chapter of the Antique Automobile Club of America. Although
AAMA is administered in an autonomous manner, holding meetings, collecting local dues and
conducting events, membership in the national Antique Automobile Club of America is required.
