The Lowcountry Oyster & Motorcar Driving Society (LOMDS), was founded in 1993 by George Sztybel, to be fashioned from a similar New York City club he belonged to, "The Madison Avenue Sportscar Driving and Chowder Society," which was orgiginally started in 1957 by Walter Cronkite and racing car announcer, Art Peck. In New York City, Chowder is a popular food much like Oysters are in the Lowcountry of South Carolina; hence the name.
Our club is a non-political, non-partisan, 501c3 tax-exempt entity, and it is open to all automobile enthusiasts of any age who are seeking a social group of men and women who share the same love and excitement for the automobile industry. We are the founding club of the Hilton Head Motoring Festival & Concours d' Elegance which is considered to be one of the finest Concours in the nation. The club is managed by an elected Board of Directors.
So, if you love classics, antiques, modern, sports cars, muscle cars, or you just like cars, you will find something to enjoy as a member of the Lowcountry Oyster and Motorcar Driving Society.
The members meet the third (3rd) Wednesday of each month at the Country Club of Hilton Head, in the Hilton Head Plantation, for a buffet lunch at 11:30 a.m. The luncheon cost is $20 per person. Annual dues are $50 per couple and $25 after June 30th.
