The earliest forerunner of AAA Texas was the Dallas Automobile Club which organized in 1904 and affiliated with AAA in the same year.  For 20 years, motor clubs formed in all the major cities including Houston, Galveston, San Antonio, El Paso, and Fort Worth, most of which joined the national federation. Dozens of smaller clubs formed during the 1920s such as Ennis, Waxahatchie, Lufkin, and Eastland County, but most of them perished during the Depression.
