The founders of the club were Paul Tucker, Gerald Meek, Ben Tankersley and Robert Fowler. The Idea of forming a club came about because antique car license were only issued to people who were members of an antique car club.
The first officers were:
President: Paul Tucker
Vice President: Gerald Meek
Secretary: Young Osburn
A decision was made to meet the third Thursday of each month. This date was chosen because it seemed to conflict less with other club and church meetings.
Some of the early meetings were held at KWHN radio station and they also held meetings in different members homes.
Today the meetings are held at Creekmore Park in Fort Smith still on the 3rd Thursday of each month.
FSAAC became affiliated with MOTAA in February, 1963.
The Club is a non profit organization.
For many years the club sponsored an open car show each year.
