Next Thing to do...
This is not a tour per se nor is it an Autoneer event,
but I decided to share it with you if you are looking for a Father's Day thing to do with your old car.
Sunday June18 - Taunton MA
I'll let the event organizer tell you about it.
"I’m having a gathering of Model T’s (all years) and horseless carriages gather on June 18th (Sunday) at the
STAR drive-in on Route 79 , 205 Myricks Street, East Taunton MA starting at noon. The idea is to have a cruise
night (afternoon) type gathering of these cars rather than your typical 50’s cruise events. The STAR drive-in is
pretty well known and will draw quite a gathering of interested people to learn and admire our cars. They’ve been
hosting car shows for decades and have never had one like this. Flyers will be made as well. I know the owner and
she can bring in the people if we bring in the cars. Our Old Colony Model T Club is celebrating 50 years this year
and we will have a cake as well for the festivities. STAR started out as an ice cream stand / burger car hop and
hasn’t changed much since its beginning. I know this is Father’s Day, but what better way to celebrate. Bring your
kids and make them buy you an ice cream or two! Please pass this invite on to all Model T / Horseless Carriage owners
- Matt Foye"

Who or what is an Autoneer?
The first use of the term is found in the "Overland Monthly" from 1902.
It is a contraction of the words "automobile" and "pioneer" and was used to describe those indefatigable folks
who first took to the paths and byways of America in their new form of transportation.
Today, this anachronistic term is revived by an enthusiastic band of New Englanders who pay homage to those who
have gone before. The group that calls itself the Autoneers is a collection of car folks who enjoy driving their brass
cars and showing the world what automotive transport was like in the early days.
The Autoneers was first organized in 1980 and held our first tour in September of that year.
In 1990 we joined forces with the Horseless Carriage Club of America
by becoming their New England Regional group. We conduct at least 6 events (tours) each year and also host other
events for the HCCA. Our outings range from 1 day tours, weekend happenings and even week long events.
Our tours are limited to non-modified vehicles built in 1914 or before, and other vehicles through 1916
that retain the hallmark characteristics of the brass era such as Ford cars.
These tours offer a wonderful way to enjoy the back roads and country lanes of New England and share their love
of these antiquated vehicles with all the folks we encounter.
HCCA membership is required of all Autoneer touring members. Prospective members and guests are encouraged to attend.
