The Austin-Healey Sports & Touring Club, or AHSTC, is a club of more than 300 members consisting of regional groups in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and Delaware. We also have members in Maryland, Ohio, Virginia, Florida and other states, mostly on the Eastern seaboard.
Club membership is open to all Healey enthusiasts. You don’t need to own a Healey to join — in fact, many people join the club in search of a car. Other people join for access to technical advice on repair or restoration, parts sources, or third-party service providers. Still others join the club to socialize with people having similar interests.
The AHSTC is a cooperative group of individual Austin-Healey regions governed by a common board of directors. The board consists of the presidents from each region, and AHSTC's corporate officers, who are elected by the region presidents, as are other positions deemed necessary.
Each regional club operates independently, electing officers and scheduling local activities and meetings as desired by its members. All regions have at least a president and a newsletter editor.
The regions take turns hosting Encounter, the AHSTC’s annual multi-day all-region car meet, open to all Healey owners and British car enthusiasts.
In 2022 the AHSTC joined forces with the Austin-Healey Club of America for a big combined meet called ENCLAVE — a combination of “Encounter” (the name of our annual meet) and “Conclave,” which is the name of the AHCA’s annual event. Enclave 2022 was a big international Healey meet, held in the scenic Pocono Mountain region of northeast Pennsylvania.
Encounter will be back in 2023. A judged Concours, popular vote car show, a rallye, tech sessions, a gymkhana and a flea market are just a few of the usual Encounter events.
