Over fourty years ago the Connecticut Council of Car Clubs (4Cs) was established. Since 1973, the 4Cs has effectively monitored legislative proposals, informed member clubs, and acted in the best interest of antique, classic and special interest car hobbyists. This year brings new challenges and opportunities.
Meetings held the first Monday of January, February, April, June, August, and November at

It took Avon resident Paul Pellerin about three years to complete his first book, and now Connecticut Created Cars is published and available to the public.
He spent the first two years doing research, ultimately discovering 184 different automobiles manufactured throughout the state.
"Most people are amazed when you tell them how many cars were built in Connecticut," Pellerin said. "There’s maybe 41 built in Hartford and 21 in Bridgeport."
Pellerin, an Avon resident of 30 years and lifelong Connecticut resident, wrote Connecticut Created Cars, in recognition of the 25th Silver Anniversary of the Connecticut Council of Car Clubs, or 4Cs, and New England Air Museum Car Show & Aircraft Exhibit, which will be held on the first Sunday in June.
Pellerin's book provides a brief history of the 4Cs, a detailed list of automobiles created in Connecticut, sorted by city with over 90 accompanying illustrations, and information on major car shows and cruise nights throughout the state.
Daniel Nichols, a Connecticut Automobile Artist, provided the illustrations.Read more: Connecticut Created Cars
Connecticut Antique Auto Hobbyists: by Dave Bajumpaa
I am very happy to report that the 2013 Legislative Session ended on Wednesday night with no bills adverse to the antique auto hobby passed! What this means is the maximum $500 property tax assessment on an antique car remains in effect. The minimum age of an antique car remains at 20 years. The last minute proposal to limit the mileage that an antique car with Early American plates to 2000 miles every two years was defeated. And the use of year of manufacture plates will continue to be allowed.This is good news for antique auto hobbyists, and is due in no small part to your efforts voicing your opposition to their legislators! Take time out to congratulate yourselves!
