The Carter County Car Club was founded in 1982 when a local McDonald's hosted a "Happy Days" program and invited local 50's and 60's car owners to participate. After that event an ad was placed in the local paper seeking other enthusiast with like interest in classic cars to contact them if interesting in forming a club of car enthusiast. The club has grown by leaps and bounds and each Saturday Night from Apr to Oct they Cruise Into Historic Downtown Elizabethton for a gathering of classic cars and meeting of old friends. Everyone is welcome to come and socialize and view the classic cars they display. Takes place on Saturday.
