HEARTLAND CLASSICS

Heartland Classics Chapter of the ACBS

About Us – Our Crew

Who are our chapter members?

The Heartland Classics Chapter is for those who love and care for antique and classic boats in America’s Heartland. Members mainly reside in five core states, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Missouri, but there are also active members from all of the adjoining states.

What keeps our chapter together?

Though the members of Heartland Classics Chapter are spread over a great distance, communication keeps everyone in the know. The award-winning chapter publication Mahogany & Chrome is mailed on a quarterly basis.

Chapter Crew

It takes a lot of dedicated individuals to keep a dynamic group like Heartland Classics up and running. If you ever need to contact any of them directly please feel free to do so. The information is provided here in the interest of advancing the classic boating hobby.
