NEW IBERIA, La. --- Are you a car enthusiast? Or do you speak French?
The public is invited to the New Iberia Vintage Car Blues rally on Wednesday, March 18 from 4-6 p.m. at the old Gulf Station (200 W. Main St.), to see old cars and visit with a group of car enthusiasts from Lyon, France.
The French “Club Les 3 A” (the 3 A’s Club: Amateurs of Ancient Automobiles) was created in Lyon, France, in 1956 to provide a venue where people interested in the preservation of old cars could share their passion.
Each November, the club hosts “Epoqu’Auto”, a vintage car show that attracts some 70,000 visitors over four days. The French club hopes to establish a friendly partnership with the Iberia Parish vintage car enthusiasts.
