GREETINGS FROM THE PRESIDENT
Hello and welcome to our new website.
On behalf of all 190 plus members of the Prescott Antique Auto Club I would like to thank you for taking the time to look over our different web pages to see what we are all about. Our webmaster has spent many hours putting together a tremendous amount of material to inform our members and the general public about our passion.
Our club is in its 44th year here in Prescott, Arizona and this year we will be hosting our 40th Annual Car Show, Parts Exchange and Old Engine Fire Up at beautiful Watson Lake Park. We are proud of our club and its heritage. We never believed when we incorporated in 1970 that we would grow this big, have our own clubhouse and be responsible for one of the biggest restoration projects recently seen anywhere in Arizona – the re-birth of Prescott’s 1931 Seagrave Model 6ET Ladder Truck.
So take a few moments and surf our site. Even better, come and join us. We are looking for people who love cars and trucks, any year and model. You don’t even have to have a special vehicle to join. We participate in parades, car shows, automotive tours, parts exchange extravaganzas and various social events. Drop by or give us a call.
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 2014 Watson Lake Show was our 40th annual show! By all measures it was a great show. We, almost entirely, dodged the monsoon rains but benefited from cool weather. We, thanks to our participants, had a large turn out. Lots of smiles. Happy show car owners, swap people, car corral folks, and small motor people. See message from the PAAC President.
If you were unable to attend the event, you can get a small "taste" of what it was like by viewing our slide show A here or slide show B here. We hope to add more photographs for you in the near future.
We also wish to thank all of the businesses who participated by offering promotions and providing items for our raffles. Some truly neat things were raffled this year.
For more information about the Watson Lake Show, please visit our Watson Lake Show pages.

The PAAC has a Clubhouse which is located at 823 Osborn St. in Prescott. This is on the northeast corner of the Prescott Rodeo Grounds. Club meetings are held at the PAAC Clubhouse on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 6:30 pm. The meetings are open to all interested persons.
PAAC has recently restored a 1931 Seagrave Ladder Truck. This truck is the first ladder truck owned by the Prescott, Arizona, Fire Department. It was purchased new in 1931.
The Prescott Antique Auto Club is a great organization! Come visit us at a general meeting or a Tuesday morning get together at the Club House. See what we are all about! Map.
