The Golden Crescent Region of the Antique Automobile Club of America will host its 59th annual Texas Tour beginning Thursday.
Organizers anticipate serving 125 people for the free event.
AACA is the oldest and largest automotive historical society in the nation, dedicated to the preservation, restoration and maintenance of automobiles and automobile history, according to a news release.
"This is one of the years where Victoria is privileged to host," said BJ Cornstubble, tour manager.
It's been five years since Victoria hosted this event that will highlight pre-recorded history, the French explorers and modern day heritage.
The tour will include a host of activities, including a welcome party, car judging, a scenic trip to historic Gonzales, live entertainment and a back road trip through Austwell throughout the weekend and festivities.
Cornstubble said antique car collecting is in his blood. He encouraged others to enjoy the sights.
"People can look and appreciate the unique style of old cars," he said.
