The 53rd national meet was held in Monroe, Michigan
American Austin and Bantam car owners were warmly welcomed to Monroe, Michigan for the 53rd national meet from July 18 to 21, 2016. With 35 cars in the parking lot, it was the largest number of vehicles at a meet in the last ten years.

The swap meet seems to start earlier in the day every year. Parts were swapped and then it was time to line up for the annual car tour. You have not experienced your Austin or Bantam properly until you have participated in our car tour. We liken it to someone spilling a bag of M&Ms as the colorful parade goes down the highway. In all, 25 cars participated this year.
This rare 1933 American Austin Suburban (pictured above) was for sale in the parking lot.
