About Collector Car Council of Colorado
The Collector Car Council of Colorado was founded in 1965 and was originally known as the Old Car Council of Colorado. Although our name has changed to better reflect the diversity, interests and goals of our members, our ultimate objectives remain the same: to preserve, enjoy and protect all aspects of the collector vehicle hobby.
Today the CCCC has grown to more than 60 clubs, organizations and individuals. Through our member clubs we directly represent several thousand collector vehicle enthusiasts in Colorado. Some of our member clubs represent national organizations that have a general interest in all aspects of antique and collector cars and vehicles; others represent single manufactures and even individual models of collector vehicles. Still others represent specific interests such as vintage racing. Rod and customs, specialty and special interest, and kit car clubs also are members.
