About The Antique & Classic Car Club of Canada (ACCCC) Brampton Region

Brampton ACCCC is one of 13 Regions of the Antique and Classic Car Club of Canada (A.C.C.C.C.).  The national web-site is www.acccc.caThe purpose of ACCCC is to further the interest and knowledge of historic, antique and classic vehicles and associated material and to encourage the ownership, restoration and preservation of such vehicles. It is not a prerequisite of the club that you own a vehicle to become a member.  The membership fee is $45.00 per year.

Brampton ACCCC welcomes members from the Brampton and Mississauga, Ontario areas.  During the "Driving Season", the Brampton ACCCC club and members organize and participate in several car-oriented activities including Brampton Classic Cars & Legendary Stars, weekly "Cruise Nights" at Shoppers World in Brampton, "Touring Inspections" (all cars participating in club events must meet club safety standards), several visits to Seniors and Assisted Living Residences, and a major "Fall Tour".  We also participate in events hosted by ACCCC National.

During the "Off-Season", the club holds monthly "Indoor Meetings" with guest speakers, monthly breakfast meetings, and other group events such as a Games and Pizza Night for members and a Christmas party where toys are collected and distributed to the less fortunate.  Details of all of our Driving and Off-Season events are available on the "Events" tab at the top of this page.

Brampton ACCCC is a club built on friendship and our cars are the glue that holds us together.  As we say, "Come for the cars, stay for the friendship."

If you are interested in joining Brampton ACCCC, contact Ted Jeffery by phone at 905 457-3584 or by email at ted27@sympatico.ca

History of Brampton ACCCC

History of Brampton ACCCC

The Brampton Region of ACCCC was formed in June 1985.  Rod Richards who had moved from Mississauga, was the founding President and served until the end of 1987.  Rod phoned a number of car enthusiasts to see if they would like to form this new region.  They were Doug Howard, Dave and Claire Farrow, Ed Thorton, Don(Vice President) and Marion(Secretary) Partrick, Rod(President) and Barb Richards, Bev(Treasurer) and Marion Genoe Ted(Membership) and Jackie Jeffery.

We started by holding our meetings in the homes of individual members.  After many years the membership grew, so a new location had to be found and we met in a meeting room below a restaurant.  We stayed there for three years and decided to look for a place brighter and more comfortable.  We now meet at the meeting room of the Brampton Minor Hockey Assoc.  For the use of this room, the club sponsors one of the minor hockey teams each year.

The Brampton Region has hosted the A.G.M. three times, the Tour to Yesteryear three times and the National Picnic once.

The Brampton Region started weekly cruise nights in 1987 at Burger King on Queen St. East.  This location became too small so we moved further East on Queen St. to Restaurant row. By this time the Brampton Street Rod Club was formed and we joined together to run the cruise night.  It was decided to change location again to KingsPoint Plaza for a larger location on Main St. North.  After three years, this also became too small so we moved again to Shoppers World Mall on 499 Main St. South, where we still meet every Tuesday from the first week in June to the second week in September.  Each cruise night we have a 50/50 draw and to date, we have donated over $25,000.00 to the local Hospital.

The Brampton Region also holds a special cruise night in the last week of August to collect toys for “Toys for Tots” which is sponsored by the local Peel Regional Police of Brampton. At the annual Brampton Region Christmas Party our members bring new unwrapped gifts for children between eight and twelve years of age in the local area to help the Salvation Army Christmas Drive.

The Club visits four different Retirement homes each summer and supports a major Brampton Downtown Development Corp. annual event called Classic Cars and Legendary Stars weekend.

In December of 2006, the Mississauga Region voted to close the door on their Region and a great number of members joined the Brampton Region which has helped to make it a fun Region.

The following is a list of those who served as President ---

Rod Richards---Don Partrick---Bill Savage---Bill Burkett---Betty Dodd---Dave Farrow---Bob Robinson---Bob Gasson---Bill Ash---Ted Jeffrey
