About The Golden Gate Austin Healey Club

CLUB HISTORY

The Golden Gate Austin Healey Club is a direct descendent of the Austin Healey Club Pacific Centre founded in the early 1970s.

Later it became the Pacific Centre’s Golden Gate Region with the primary function of supporting Healey activities in the San Francisco Bay Area in conjunction with the Central Valley Region.

In 1997, the Golden Gate Region became the Golden Gate Austin Healey Club, an independent entity affiliated nationally with the Austin Healey Club of America (AHCA).

The Club is a resource that helps members to maintain and enjoy Austin-Healeys.

The Club also provides and supports Healey driving events in Northern and Central California, including the hosting of the OpenRoads Healey International meet held in June 2002 at Lake Tahoe to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the first Austin Healey–the 100.
