Founded in 1985 as the Gilmer Street Rodders, we became Apple Country Auto Club when the chance enabled the club to be part of Antique Auto Club of America. We are the original car club of Gilmer County. We have grown to be a focal point of the Gilmer County community and North Georgia automotive enthusiasts. Our events include a monthly cruise night on the second Friday of the month (April-September), as well as our annual Apple Classic Auto Show on the first Saturday of the Georgia Apple Festival. For more information on our events or if you are interested in becoming a member contact us through the contact page on the website.
Apple Country Auto Club Inc. is a non-profit organization, “preserving the classics for the future”, as we give back to our community.
Our events include a monthly cruise night on the second Friday of the month (April-September) at the Highlands Shopping Center parking lot in front of Walmart in Ellijay. Our annual car show, the Apple Classic Auto Show, is held on the first Saturday of the Georgia Apple Festival at Ronnie Thompson Ford.
Our club raises money through monetary donations, 50/50 drawings at our meetings and events, and yearly raffle items. Our past raffle items have included a Chevy engine, rifles, generators, etc. Our 2020 raffle items will be listed in the next few weeks.
All proceeds that we take in throughout the year are distributed throughout the local community by way of scholarships, donations to Christmas programs for children, as well as other programs that help the community.
