2017 Homecoming Announced
The Lincoln Owners Club is pleased to be the host sponsoring club for the Annual Homecoming in August of 2017 at our beautiful museum in Hickory Corners. All four clubs will be in attendance to celebrate the 100 year founding of the Lincoln Motor Company in 1917.
Each of our clubs is holding only one national meet this year to commemorate this important milestone in our history. We've got an exciting agenda planned for our group that will satisfy all the members of our clubs and their families. In addition to offering some exciting tours of classic auto collections, we've planned visits to beautiful parks, an historic village, a visit to the exquisite home of the Kellogg family, and a tour and beer tasting at a successful craft brewery.
Everything you need to know to sign up for this exceptional program is available for you by clicking on the "Documents" tab to the left. Whether you plan on bringing your classic Lincoln or not, join us in August for this memorable event. Register now - many of our tours are capacity constrained and once they're filled, you'll have to choose something else. If you have any questions, please contact Eric van den Beemt or David Schultz. You can find our contact information in either The Fork and Blade or the Newsletter.
To make it easier for you to register, the registration document is also available for you online at http://lincolncarmuseum.org/ This link allows you to fill out and submit the document on line; then all you have to do is mail in your check.
While we have rooms reserved at multiple hotels your first choice should be the Sheraton Four Points in Kalamazoo, which is the site of meet headquarters and two of our dinners. There are a limited number of rooms available here so make your reservations now. You can do this online at
Lincolns On The Blue Ridge
Ferrum College - June 8-12, 2016
Meet Directors David Roycroft and L.D. Arrington, plus the staff of Ferrum College, welcome you to the 2016 LOC and LZOC meet in Ferrum Virginia. This idyllic town, nestled in the heart of the Virginia Blue Ridge offers a perfect backdrop for enjoyment our Lincolns. Nearby, the famed Blue Ridge Parkway is the perfect road for exercising those Lincolns and just a short hop from the College. With classes and graduation completed in early May, we will have the campus and the grounds pretty much to ourselves, from Wednesday June 8th until you leave for home on Sunday, the 12th of June.
The 4 days of festivities planned will not only highlight the beauty of the region, but also offer a spectacular venue in foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Southwestern Virginia. The town of Ferrum and the College itself is surrounded by mountains, lakes, rivers and state parks, plus numerous small towns brimming with regional heritage, that will give members of the LOC and LZOC some of the most unique and varied shopping, social, dining and entertainment opportunities of any Lincoln meet in the past 50 years. The 700 acre Ferrum Campus, a private four-year residential college is gorgeously maintained and gives you the feel of a park like atmosphere. Ferrum has easy access to the major metropolitan areas of Roanoke, Virginia (35 miles to the north) or Greensboro, North Carolina (70 miles to the south) via Virginia State Route 40.

Welcome to the new Lincoln Owners Club web site!
Please take a few moments to browse around and see what we have done. The old site was developed long ago and served us well but was very difficult to maintain. Hopefully this will be a vast improvement.
Please consider joining over 450 members from around the world who own or simply have an interest in these grand old Lincolns produced between 1920 and 1939.
Membership is easy and inexpensive. Joining entitles you to receive our club magazine, the Fork and Blade, which is produced six times a year. In addition, we print a member's roster annually. Additional pages on this website are available as well, including an up to date membership directory listing all our members and their automobiles.
We have several meets each year, often in conjunction with our friends at the Lincoln Zephyr Owners Club.
Finally, you will have access to our members who are the best resource for information about the history and restoration of these fine automobiles.
You can join online by clicking on "Become a Member!" using any major credit card. The site is secure so your credit card information is safe.
Or, if you prefer, you can go to the "Documents" tab at the left, and navigate to the application for new membership. You can print it out and mail it with your check.

Notes on our Web Site
If you are a member you will be able to access the Membership Directory and search for your personal information. Please check this over for accuracy. Much of this data is old and has not been verified. You will find that you can make changes to your personal information, but not your membership expiration date.
This site currently has room for only five cars per member and we have some members with more than five cars. We have retained that information and plan to add it to our site when Club Express modifies this part of their program late in 2013.
Some of you have second homes that you migrate to in the winter. If this is the case, you may change your address when you move. Don't forget to change it back again so that you continue to receive your Fork and Blade and other communication from us.
Please consider adding an email address. I know many of us are reluctant to put our addresses on the site, but I can tell you that this information is only able to be accessed by current members. We will only use your email address on an occasional basis and will never sell or give our membership information to outsiders without your permission.
