April 21-26, 2013
VMCCA's Chrome Glidden Car Show & Ice Cream Social

5pm-8pm. Main Plaza, 100 North Main. Hosted by Veteran Motor Car Club of America.

In 2013 the Veteran Motor Car Club of America is celebrating their 75th anniversary. The VMCCA holds different tours throughout the country every year, the premier tour being the Revival AAA Glidden Tour®. The American Automobile Association (AAA) conducted the original Glidden Tour in 1905 to encourage tourism and demonstrate the reliability of a new form of transportation – the horseless carriage. The eight original Glidden tours (1905 – 1913) were lengthy and demanding of man and machine. Once the reliability of the new-fangled automobile had been proven, the tours had served their purpose and were ended in 1913. In 1946, James Melton, a VMCCA member and renowned opera star, revived the tours. The original Detroit Glidden Revival Tour proved to be so successful that 67 annual events have followed. Since 1946, the Revival Glidden Tours® have been hosted in alternate years by the Veteran Motor Car Club of America (VMCCA) and the Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA). In 2002, AAA celebrated its 100th anniversary by reviving its historic participation as a sponsor of the tour, since then known as the “Revival AAA Glidden Tour®”.

Recognizing the increasing interest in cars of later eras, in 1982 the VMCCA pioneered the “Chrome Glidden Tour” for cars 1935 through 25 years of age. This event has been held annually in different parts of the country ever since, thus allowing owners of newer collector cars to enjoy touring in the Glidden tradition.

The 2013 Chrome Glidden Tour, “Chroming Around the Hill Country,” will be held in Boerne, Texas from April 21 through the 26. The cars will be on display at Main Plaza on Wednesday, April 24th starting at 5pm.
