Numerous Fredericksburg TX property owners form the Fredericksburg Vintage Car Club, an active organization hosting a large summer event in Fredericksburg.  It is the Annual Hill Country Auto Swap Meet.  The event benefits Fredericksburg Vintage Car Club Scholarship fund.

A varying collection of vintage cars can be seen on display each July at Lady Bird Johnson Park on Highway 16 S.  The classy 2014 event will be held July 25, 26, and 27.  In addition to the exciting Car Corral, there will be 900 indoor and outdoor flea-market vendors, concessions, and a free trolley around the premises.  Admission is free.  

Fitting right in with the vintage theme, historic Main Street Fredericksburg and 100s of local B&B establishments accommodate visitors from around Texas and the USA for this special event.

What is a "vintage" car?

Collectors and participants in the Fredericksburg Texas Classic Car Club and the Veteran Motor Car Club of America have carefully defined differences between classic cars, vintage cars, and antique cars.  While those unfamiliar with these categories might just be seeing "old" vehicles, enthusiasts connected with major car clubs may distinguished between these groups.

Historically speaking, the "vintage" era began in 1919 and continued through 1930.  Many of these classic cars do not have the safety features required in later years.  In addition, this was a time when automobiles had to navigate bumpy dirt and gravel roads.  Federal Highway Legislation began.  Only a handful of car companies survived the economic ups and downs of the vintage era.  

Car collecting is usually a hobby and/or an investment.  Some Fredericksburg TX property owners have purchased vintage cars in excellent condition and take them on Sunday drives or show them at car shows.  Others purchase less-expensive options and spend a period of time fixing them up and restoring them to their original, pristine state.  

Investors seek vehicles that are expected to appreciate, either in the short term or the long term.  Each vehicle is assigned a numeric category, from 0 to 100, which reflects its condition.  For example, Category I may include a Model A in "Perfect" condition that will sell for $20,000.  An older restoration (Category III-60 to 69 points) with some wear may still be considered show quality.
