    Hey folks, my dad (still with us) was a member of the Ambassadors club in Torrance, CA in the 1950s. I can’t find much about them, but seems they’re not a club anymore.

    Anyone have info I can pass on to ‘ol dad?

    Thanks,

    john

    Ask Dad if he remembers the "Stockers" of Manhattan Beach, another car club from the South Bay that seems to have been lost to the ages. I regret I don't have any information on the Ambassadors.

    He said everyone in the Stockers was a loser and had slow cars.

    OK, in reality he said didn’t know anything about the Stockers. The Ambassadors started in about 1950 and was only around for a few years.

    One of my brothers found this online photo though. Apparently, there were Stockers elsewhere as well.
