Lincoln Motor Car Foundation

presents Museum Keys

to Club Presidents

 

An estimated 800 Lincoln enthusiasts were present on August 9th to participate in the dedication of the stunning new Lincoln Motor Car Museum at "The Gilmore", in Kalamazoo, Mich. Jack Eby, Foundation President, masterfully officiated the event, detailing the vision, dedication and years of commitment required to complete the project. He introduced the presidents of the four Lincoln Clubs: Lincoln Owners' Club, Lincoln Zephyr Owners' Club, Lincoln Continental Owners' Club and Roadrace Lincolns.

 

Jack then presented each president a key to the front door, expressing "here are the keys to your museum", use it and enjoy it!

The museum was built and is outfitted within the tradition of Lincoln - everything is first class, no shortcuts! It stands out as the shining star of all the museums at "The Gilmore". A must see for Lincoln Enthusiast.

 

The momentum of the festivities overflowed to the banquet that evening where just under $50,000 was raised from the 400 attendees. These funds will to go toward the subsistence of the museum. Those members previously skeptical of the project now were believers and generously made pledges and donations.

Annual Dues
 
Please pay your annual dues now for the 2014 calendar year.  For the eighth year in a row we have kept the dues constant without an increase.  This is in part because we ask you to download the renewal form and pay by mail with your check or pay with your credit card on our secure site.  Doing so will save us the printing and postage charges in sending you a paper bill in the mail.
 
With your renewal fee please consider a donation to the new Lincoln Motor Car Heritage Museum now under construction in Hickory Corners, Michigan.  While we have raised enough money to pay for the construction of the museum, we are just starting to raise the money necessary for interior displays and a fund to finance the ongoing costs of the museum.  If you've already contributed, thank you and please consider an additional donation.  If you haven't yet contributed, this is your museum and it will help to perpetuate the legacy of all our Lincolns.

 Welcome to the new Lincoln Owners Club web site! 

 

Please take a few moments to browse around and see what we have done.  The old site was developed long ago and served us well but was very difficult to maintain.  Hopefully this will be a vast improvement.

 

Please consider joining over 450 members from around the world who own or simply have an interest in these grand old Lincolns produced between 1920 and 1939.

 

Membership is easy and inexpensive.  Joining entitles you to receive our club magazine, the Fork and Blade, which is produced six times a year.  In addition, we print a member's roster annually.  Additional pages on this website are available as well, including an up to date membership directory listing all our members and their automobiles. 

 

We have several meets each year, often in conjunction with our friends at the Lincoln Zephyr Owners Club. 

 

Finally, you will have access to our members who are the best resource for information about the history and restoration of these fine automobiles.

 

You can join online by clicking on "Become a Member!" using any major credit card.  The site is secure so your credit card information is safe.

 

Or, if you prefer, you can go to the "Documents" tab at the left, and navigate to the application for new membership. You can print it out and mail it with your check.

Notes on our Web Site

 

If you are a member you will be able to access the Membership Directory and search for your personal information.  Please check this over for accuracy. Much of this data is old and has not been verified. You will find that you can make changes to your personal information, but not your membership expiration date. 

 

This site currently has room for only five cars per member and we have some members with more than five cars. We have retained that information and plan to add it to our site when Club Express modifies this part of their program late in 2013. Some of you have second homes that you migrate to in the winter. If this is the case, you may change your address when you move. Don't forget to change it back again so that you continue to receive your Fork and Blade and other communication from us.

 

Please consider adding an email address. I know many of us are reluctant to put our addresses on the site, but I can tell you that this information is only able to be accessed by current members. We will only use your email address on an occasional basis and will never sell or give our membership information to outsiders without your permission.
