A love of old cars has greased the wheels of a long-time auto club for decades.

When we were younger, and cars became a way of life, car hookups were the first real place you'd experience the camaraderie of fellow petrolheads. Our fathers (and mothers) did it, and our grandfathers did it, just like their parents did.

Car clubs was the foundation of becoming a full-fledged car-lover, and we'd often arrange massive meetups on weeknights just to get together, no matter what you drove. Then there were the park-offs at the beach on Sunday afternoons after a convoy cruise with your best friends.

That same fellowship made a small group of high school kids in the United States start the Black Road Auto Club. Although the club has been meeting in a Stamford, Connecticut Buger King car park for the past 35 years, the origins of the club goes way back to 1957. To this day, these guys still meet up on Mondays for a weekly cruise, and just to hang out and talk about cars.

Talk about passing on a legacy. Isn't that just special?

It's a feast for any car-lover with beautiful cars like Plymouth, Mercury, Thunderbirds, classic Ford models from yesteryear, the list goes on. Watch the video above to see the love of true classic car aficionados.
