The Dixie Classic Chevy Club was formed in the summer of 1981 as a local chapter of the Classic Chevy Club International. The International Club, in Orlando, Florida, had been in existence since 1974. It was bought by Eckler’s some years ago. The original members of the Dixie Club felt that there was enough interest in the North-metro Atlanta area to warrant a club of our very own.
The Dixie Classic Chevy Club’s purpose is to promote the ownership, preservation, and restoration of the 1955, ’56, and ’57 Chevrolet cars and trucks, as well as associated literature, novelties, and related items. We expanded our model years to include classic Chevys through 1972. We encourage fellowship and technical help whenever possible to anyone interested in these vehicles and their time period. ANY 1955 through 1972 Chevy qualifies! We are just as interested in vehicles that are driven every day as we are in show cars. We enjoy looking at and talking about ALL makes and models. Our club includes a wide variety of ’55 -’72 Chevys, ranging from project cars to show cars, garage kept to daily drivers, original to highly modified. In short, if you own any kind of Chevrolet vehicle built between 1955 and 1972, you belong in our club.
What if you don’t currently own one of these classics? That’s OK; ownership is not necessary. The Dixie Classic Chevy Club members are a group who share an interest, and we are more than happy to help you find that car of your dreams or to share memories of that Classic Chevy that you wish you had kept.
The club meets the first Thursday of each month for dinner and a business meeting. Members get together for dinner around 6:30 P.M. at Bay Breeze Seafood Restaurant, located at 2418 Canton Rd, Marietta, GA 30066. Our meetings start at 7:30 P.M. and are usually over by 8:30 or 9:00. We discuss upcoming events, plan our club’s participation at many car shows, share ideas, and have informative sessions on different aspects of owning, restoring, and maintaining our cars. We also share with our membership the various mailings we receive from parts manufacturers, dealers, and other clubs from around the country. In addition to the business aspect, we pride ourselves on being a “people’s club.” We host cookouts, have an annual Christmas party, and plan several events throughout the year for the entire family. We travel to car shows, swap meets, and area Cruise Nights throughout the year. We really do enjoy the fellowship that comes from having an active club.
How do you join? It’s easy! Just give us a call, send an email, or fill out the contact form!
Club dues are $25 per year, prorated the first year. We appreciate your interest in our club, and look forward to meeting you in person. But beware…when we start talking old cars, you might not be able to stop us!!!
