As motorsports enthusiasts, we love the process of restoration. We enjoy taking an old car and applying the skills, talents and resources necessary to bring it to a better-than-new condition. Whether it is a rusted forgotten '33 Chevrolet to a well-used 60's Muscle Car or a Model A Truck ... it is our joy and passion to witness the creation of a beautiful piece of automotive art as the meaningful culmination of our combined skills and efforts. Northeast Texas Travelers is comprised of men and women who believe that life also exhibits a parallel principle in the process of growth and maturity that everyone must experience in the ongoing course of life.
A few of our members' cars.
The Northeast Texas Travelers car club was started as a small group of individuals that had a desire to get together and support their passion of building "hot rods". Origination of the club began in Mount Pleasant, Texas in 1987. The club then moved its meeting place to Paris, Texas in 2000.
With members from Clarksville, Deport, Powderly, Mount Pleasant, and Paris we definitely represent Northeast Texas. Our members come from all backgrounds and enjoy the fellowship as well as the trips to other cities in their classic cars.
With the start of the National Street Rod Association and the Lone Star Street Rod Association around 1975, the "hot rods" have changed to "street rods". The main difference is that our cars must be street legal and able to drive many miles to participate in the many "Rod Runs" throughout the United States.
Our club officially classifies "1972 and earlier" as the year model cut off, however you do not have to have a classic car to join our club. We just ask that you have a desire to be involved abd are looking toward the future to have a classic car in your garage.
The Northeast Texas Travelers meet every Thursday at one the local restaurants to eat and talk about our cars and where the next event is and how to get there. Many times we caravan to the events with as many as 10 cars going down the highway with onlookers staring and wishing they had one of the cars.
Call or e-mail us and let us know if you are interested in joining us.
Northeast Texas Travelers Car Club
The mission of the Northeast Texas Travelers Car Club is to promote "Street Rodding" in Paris, Texas and surrounding communities. We strive to bring people together for the purpose of helpin them to build, buy, or just enjoy hot rodded classic cars. We only require membership to participate and help us sponsor a Rod Run in September. The run is our main event of the year and we welcome all visitors and car enthusiasts.
Hot Rodders Prayer
Before I proceed to bring this old vehicle back to life,
Please help me keep the receipts from the eyes and hands of my wife.
If she knew the total cost of this spectacular project,
It would not be my car, but my life You would have to protect.
Help me, Lord, find deals that make me appear thrifty and smart.
And oh please, God, let this thing start.
