Membership Information

When the City of Oshawa celebrated the 100th Birthday Robert Samuel McLaughlin in 1971, the celebrations included a parade of over fifty McLaughlin and Buick automobiles. This had been arranged by members of the Antique and Classic Car Club of Canada and the Canadian Automotive Museum.

Bringing these people together for the event led to the formation of the McLaughlin Buick Club of Canada and the club celebrates that occasion with an annual Homecoming event. In 2008, at Colonel Sam's Parkwood Estate in Oshawa, over 120 McLaughlin and Buick automobiles recognised the 100th anniversary of McLaughlin-Buick in Canada.

The club publishes a quarterly magazine, The Accelerator. Members can choose to receive their copy by mail or for a substantially lower membership fee, electronically by e-mail. It features interesting articles about members'cars and the historical aspects of McLaughlin and Buick. All issues contain membership updates and a classified section with free ads. for members.

Members have access to the Club Library and can purchase club merchandise including club jackets, crests, caps and badges.

Beside the annual Homecoming, which is a three or four day event usually held in Ontario in early August, Spring and Fall Tours are organized most years.
