Lowcountry Oyster & Motorcar Driving Society

Dedicated to the Enjoyment of Motorcars


The Lowcountry Oyster & Motorcar Driving Society, founded in 1993, was fashioned from a similar New York club named The Madison Avenue Sportscar Driving and Chowder Society or “The Chowder Club” for short. That club was started in 1957 by Walter Cronkite and car racing announcer, Art Peck.  And just as chowder is a New England thing, oysters are a Lowcountry thing. 
We are now a member owned organization dedicated to the enjoyment of automobiles and social activities by enthusiasts everywhere. Join in the informative luncheon and dinner meetings presenting the latest automotive pleasures and activities. Meet with fellow enthusiasts and enjoy their cars and interesting stories about life's adventures in motorcar activities. Whether your pleasure in life is for classic, concours, antique, modern, sports cars, muscle cars, or you just like cars, you will find something to enjoy as a member of the Lowcountry Oyster and Motorcar Driving Society.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 18th 11:30am

Luncheon/Meeting at the Country Club of Hilton Head with a presentation on the American National Auto Race in Savannah.
rsvp to : rosemaryki@aol.com.

From 1908 to 1911 the American  National Auto Race was held in Savannah. This was the major auto event in North America with drivers from both Europe and North America attending. After three years it was returned to New York where it had been held from 1904 to 1908. The reasons for this change will be covered and the way that Savannah managed to create a racing center that is still there. This was around the town race so much of the road system etc. had to be changed or rebuilt. Today we can still see the effect of these changes.
