Who is MAAC ?

This is the organization that protects your interests against unfriendly state legislation. AutoNetNewEngland stongly recommends that all Car Clubs in Massachusetts consider becoming a member of this worthwhile organization.

“promoting the interests of the hobby”

The Massachusetts Association of Auto Clubs was founded in 1969 by a group of concerned hobbyists, much like yourself, who were dedicated to promoting and protecting the interest of the automobile collecting hobby. They took it upon themselves to contact all the car clubs in the state and had them send two representatives to the very first meeting at the Bolton Town Hall. The response was tremendous.


Over the years, MAAC has worked behind the scenes to protect the interests of the hobbyists against legislation that could have had a negative impact on driving our collector vehicles. MAAC has also worked proactively to make changes the way we register our antiques or collector cars. Some of the areas MAAC has made specific impact on behalf of the entire hobby are:

Year of Manufacture Plate wording drafted, approved & implemented by RMV.

· Initiated Insurance Law changes to allow Specialty Insurance Carriers.

· Seatbelt law that exempts vehicles manufactured before 1966 to be retro-fitted.

· Vehicle inspection program to exempt antique vehicles from any type of emission testing & waver from annual inspection if vehicle off road for extended period.

· Assistance in changing town zoning ordinances impacting the storage of antiques on private property.

MAAC cannot stand still. The legislative activity at both the national and state level continues to threaten our hobby. If we, the hobbyists, want to continue to enjoy our vehicles it will only be through a strong unified effort. Clunker laws, Zero Emission vehicles and Clean Air Acts will all take their toll if we don’t make our lawmakers aware of our side of the issues. To make all this happen, MAAC needs your support to carry out the programs that we has set for ourselves.
