The group, originally known for the distinctive TCT logo, has grown throughout the past century and now boasts over 2,000 club members and over 40,000 Facebook followers.
A Centennial Celebration Caravan has been organized to visit areas that were a part of TCT history in Michigan. TCT held summer reunions in Traverse City from 1921 to 1963. Many TCT members were also members of the Automobile Tourists Association and participated in events before the Summer Reunion at Orchard Beach State Park.
