Est. 1960

A Historic Auto Club for enthusiasts


Founded in 1960, Great Lakers Auto Club is one of the oldest auto clubs in America.  We are located in Michigan City, IN.


GLAC was founded on March 3, 1960 and has been in the Michigan City area since its beginning.  We are one of the oldest car clubs in the U.S. We are dedicated to the automotive enthusiasts that work, preserve or build vehicles to enjoy either showing or racing them. We have a facility for members to work on their vehicles and a club room for weekly meetings on Wednesdays. The club is organized on a set of rules and regulations with a constitution. We elect officers every year and have a Board of Directors. We are a Not-For-Profit organization. 

We’ve had many car shows and swap meets over the years and we have been in most Michigan City parades since they began in the late 60’s. In 2001, we partnered with the summer festival committee to start a car show and swap meet at the Labor Dayz Festival in Washington Park. The Labor Dayz Show and Shine (one of our marquee events) brings in many vehicles to a Saturday cruise to the beach and a trophy awarded Sunday car show with a swap meet. We take great pride in our club and support other organizations that make a difference in our community.



The application process is an 8-week period in which you become a prospective member first. Attendance for these 8 weeks is required.  During this time, fellow active members will help you get acquainted with the rules and regulations of the car club as well as the traditions and uses of the club grounds.  Then the active members will vote on your acceptance into the club.  Once you’re in, you will receive a key to the premises, a plaque, and 24/7 use of the club facilities.  You will also get a monthly newsletter, an invitation to the annual membership banquet, and you may participate in all club activities. At the weekly meetings members discuss the operations of the club. As an active member, you can vote on the matters concerning the club and its membership. An active membership is the best way to support your car club!
