A Few Words About the Prescott Antique Auto Club
The Prescott Antique Auto Club (PAAC) is open to anyone with an interest in vintage or classic vehicles or machinery. Our members have a wide interest in acquiring, restoring, and exhibiting antique, vintage, production and/or special interest vehicles or machinery. We promote many activities for the enjoyment of all of our members and their families.
PAAC regularly schedules various events such as mini car shows, parades, monthly tours, monthly cruise-ins, swap meets and other related events. We present one of Northern Arizona's best yearly shows, The Watson Lake Show, in early August.

The 43rd Annual event started on Saturday, 5 August 2017 at the beautiful Watson Lake Park. A huge swap meet was being held as the Antique, Classic, Muscle Cars, Rat Rods, Hot Rods and Resto-Mods cars filled the display field. There were about 150 vehicles of all kinds for people to browse and inspect. All attendees of the show also got a voting card to fill out to nominate their choices for the Best Original, Best Modified & the Best Truck displayed on the car show field. There was also a special Ladies Choice Award available too.

The Parts Exchange Swap meet had spaces available for 140 vendors and almost all the spaces were filled. Parts from the 1920s, 1930s, 1950s and newer were there for you to find the special part that was necessary to complete your project.
The Car Corral displayed all the vehicles that were for sale. An excellent place to find your next project.
Food and drink vendors were in a central area overlooking the Swap Meet and the Car Show area. To the west side of the park was the display area for the Car Corral.
The Antique Engine Fire Up Show surprised children of all ages, Antique Maytag washing machine engines, various Hit and Missed engines that can run drive belts to lumber cutting operations, corn shucking operations and pumping water from one source to another. Old trucks, tow trucks, fire trucks, Model T trucks were on display.
The weather looked stormy around 10:30 AM but the clouds blew away to mostly sunny skies. I don’t know about the weather after 1 PM. That is perfectly normal for Prescott this time of the year.
Next year’s show will be the First Saturday and Sunday, 5th & 6th August 2018. For information, contact the PAACAZ, Prescott Antique Auto Club Arizona. PAACAZ.COM
See you there!
