Does anyone know any members from the 1950's camwinders in colorado Springs?
I live in the springs, but i can't say im familiar with them. I need to brush up on my local rodder history
yes I do.
Do you need to get in touch with them?
someone specific, or just anyone?
I was a member in mid '60's,'31 A sedan. Still have my plaque,shirt and some stationary and envelopes w/letterhead.My winter jacket was stolen from my buddies car outside The Dawn bar and grille.
Just wanted ta let everyone know the Cam Winders are still around and do a huge show up here in the N.W. Here's a couple links to Google pages with more info. Can you post some pics of any Cam Winders memorabilia you may still have or any information about the early origins of the club.
I was a member in 1956&7. Still have the aluminum plate with the Can and logo
Cam and logo
I'm looking for the Camwinders of Colorado Springs, not sure if any of the original members of the 50's are still around, or how to get ahold of any current members.
There was a Hill Climb event in Georgetown 1953 and 1954. Several of the Camwinders were there as competitors, Cotton Warren, Bob Reinfried, Tom Carroll, Major W. M. Martin, Doug Cimino to name a few.
We are resurecting this event, I have been compiling pictuers and stories and would really enjoy getting in touch with anyone that is interested.
This uniquely bobbed 1934 Ford was from the Colorado Springs Camwinders Club, owner/driver is believed to be Tom Carroll. Pictured here in Georgetown in 1954.
The ’34 coupe of Major Martin typified the street machines that were entered. His club, the Camwinders of Colorado Springs, was just one of the Colorado Timing Association groups invited.
