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.

rose hill mansion tour

LOMDS Members at Rose Hill Mansion
A beautiful day for a gathering of the LOMDS faithful at The Rose Hill Mansion.
The weather was perfect, topped with a guided tour of the South’s most beautiful
plantation house built in 1858. The tour was followed with a delicious luncheon,
consisting of a variety of delicious Sandwiches, Salads, and Southern Treats. Our
hosts and club members Rusty and Robin White made us all feel at home in the
mansion that they have been actively restoring and calling home over the last
fifteen or sixteen years. The Mansion suffered a major fire and laid vacant until
Rusty purchased it for Robin for her 29th Birthday. Thank you Rusty, Robin and
the staff for a memorable outing.
