The Antique Caravan (the oldest motorized unit at Syrian) was organized in 1972. The unit has 13 "Tin Lizzies", and a wrecker (customized golf cart) in use today. Each Tin Lizzie is kept and maintained by a member of the unit. The unit promotes Shrinedom through participation in the many parades and fucntions sponsored by our fraternity.

Our unit started in 1983 with mini 1932 Model B Ford Roadster cars. They are powered with a 8 hp Briggs engine, a 3-speed forward with reverse transmission. We participate in Shrine events, meetings and parades. We have some cars available to purchase. Please contact any of our Roadsters members for more information. You are also welcome to stop by on our meeting nights to meet our unit members. To join the unit the initiation fee is only $115.00 of which $15.00 is the first year's dues. Our unit does fundraising events to fund our meetings, summer picnics and the Christmas party. The ladies also have an auxiliary that meet the same time as the men do. Their dues are $15.00 a year, which the money goes towards buying clothes, candy and other needs for the children at the Acute Unit of Shriners Hospital. Take a look at our family-oriented organization for a really good time.
