    My boss has just brought a '56 Pontiac which has just been imported into New Zealand. It has a Pharaohs club plaque and decals. We would love to get any info on the car or it's previous owner(s)

    Any help would be appreciated.

    First of all the Medesto boys are "Pharoahs" not "Pharaohs" those are two different clubs.

    If the car has "Pharaoh" markings its not connected to the medesto boys . The Medesto Pharoahs are a very large club .
    The Pharaohs are each seperate but also there are many Pharaohs club all over the country and world .
    My self I belong to The Pharaohs of Minnesota and have contact with many other Pharaoh clubs in the states including the Medesto Pharoahs
    What does the plaque look like ?

    I may have the exact spelling wrong. I will have to check with the owner.

    The plaque is a standard size club plaque with just the word PHARAOHS (?) in an arc across it. The car also has small decals (I think in green) with Pharaohs on them.

    The car is in getting some work done on it at the moment to comply with New Zealand road rules. I will have to get a photo.

    Thanks for your help.
     
  10. I'm Heading West to Modesto, Ca. in a day or so, and if it's the Modesto Pharoahs, then I could probably talk to them about the car and maybe get a contact for you.

    I know they like to hang out at the Local A&W near my house from time to time.

    PM Me the Pics of the car and info.

    Weird that a car would be sold with an actual club plaque. Most would never give away a plaque to a club they are actively a member of. Sounds like it was just a swap meet buy stuck on the car to '50s it up. Probably wrong, but it would be the first thing I took off it it was my car and my club.

    I think Flamedabone had a mid 50's pontiac many moons ago and he is part of the club (thou do not know which spelling).

    Like JimA, I find it hard to believe a club member would let his plaque go. They do make repops of them.

    I would have to agree with JimA . Seems strange that a Pharoah would let his rod go with its markings. In our club The Pharaohs of Minnesota we never ever let a rod go with any Pharaoh markings EVER

    The plaque on the car has a black painted background.

    I found the picture I used on the link supplied by Bullet Nose further up this post.

    Yes, I do agree it is strange that the plaque was left on the car.

    In our club the plaques are club property so we cannot sell them.

    I have seen a copy of the California title and it says the owner was Rubino Joseph Eugene of San Jose.

    The story I was told is that the buyer had to become a member of the Pharoahs to keep the club markings on the car. The new owner in New Zealand has also had to become a member(??) so the plaque and decals could stay on the car.

    Seems strange that just buying a car could get someone into The Pharoahs or The Pharaohs . I know that all of the Medesto Pharoahs chapters have a rule that you cant join you must be asked . And the same goes for my club . Havnt heard back from Ant about the dragger or the car your boss bought . Ill let ya know



     
  25. Still around. International, plastering the east. Let me know if any of you want your childhood dream to come true. I get ya contacts. Love to have ya . The above, unpaint draggers plate is one of ours, we don't let them roll with our car, they comeun painted, so you can custom paint, match your rides. Merry Christmas
