The VCCA Touring Program promotes our hobby and the VCCA
One of the best benefits of belonging to the VCCA is taking our vehicles on tours. The Touring Committee is dedicated to the promotion and enjoyment of owning and driving Chevrolets, social interaction and fellowship among members, and increasing awareness of the Vintage Chevrolet Club of America in the general public.
The popularity of driving our Chevrolets continues to increase in the VCCA. In an effort to support and enhance the experience the VCCA Touring program was developed. It consists of three segments – Tours – Vehicle Passport – Touring Awards.
Driven vehicle tours have been a part of the VCCA since the club was founded in 1961. In 2003, a Touring Committee was established to develop a program for the recognition of these driven Chevrolets. The first and most important aspect of the program was to offer tours of various types across the country. A number of vehicle or era specific tours had been conducted for many years. This has rapidly expanded offering numerous types of tours. A key factor of the program permits any VCCA member to be the Tour Master and to plan and conduct a tour.
Remember - EVERY Chevrolet is eligible to participant in the Touring Program. If it wears a Bowtie, it's welcome.
There is a Touring Guidelines Manual available to members only. This should be helpful in covering most everything you have to think about, so that even a novice can manage a Tour - and the Touring Committee is always ready to help get a tour launched. It is available under the Member Services in the RESOURCE CENTER under the "Touring" TAB.

The concept of using a document to record a vehicles driven VCCA tour miles was developed in 2004. The document was designed to mirror a U.S. Passport. Each vehicle participating in the Touring Program is issued a Passport. It includes a photo of the vehicle, owner information and entry areas to record tour title, date and official tour mileage as indicated by the Tour Master. Unique to the VCCA, All Chevrolets to current production are welcome to participate in the program.
Recognition of the tour driven mileage was the final portion of the program development. Vehicle Awards, similar to the VCCA Class Judging Program were developed in 2007. The design consists of an oval with the likeness of Louis Chevrolet and stacking mileage tabs.
A member upon reaching the following milestones may request award recognition: 500 miles – Oval with Louis Chevrolet, 1,000 – 2,000 – 5,000 and 10,000 mile stacking tabs. Also unique to this program, Touring Awards may be displayed on the vehicle in addition to Class Judging Awards.
