The AAMA official website was started on March 21, 2001 and informs its members of coming
events, what has occurred in the recent past, news of our members and to promote interest in the
antique automobile hobby in Alaska. It has attracted national attention by receiving the 2001, 2002
& 2003 Award of Excellence for Regional Websites  and the 2002 Master Webmaster Award
bestowed by the Antique Auto Club of America to webmaster Greg Lear. Most recently the website
was awarded the Regional Award of Distinction for 2007.
Tinkering Times:
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 6:30pm. For directions to the
meeting location, 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 region 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.
