This was past on to me by my late friend Mike Branson....RIP Mike.
OK, I've viewed this entire thread and no mention of the group that were around the Inglewood, Westchester area of California around 1959. The plaque just said ELIMINATORS 90+. That was a drag strip validated time which was pretty good for 1959. Anyone else remember ?
This one from SW LA? .....
The plaques I run on my car
Sent from my SM-A600P using The H.A.M.B. mobile app
The plaque I run on the wagon with permission from a couple of the founding members. Made from the original 1955 casting when the club was founded.
Wow! It's been almost six months since there have been any plaque photos posted here. Time to bump it to the top in case some of the newbies missed it.
In the upcoming year, I should be posting the 10,000th photo on my site.

And still nobody seems to know anything about this plaque that I've had for over 40 yrs.........its supposedly from the USA, I certainly know of no Long Beach here in Oz where I found it at a Oz parts importers shop around 1978......poor pic I know but Throttle Stompers, Long Beach surely someone knows of them.........the guys from Valley Custom were supposedly in a club by that name according to Pat Ganahl' book "The American Custom Car", page 18.......Neil Emory, Clay Jensen and Dean Batchelor apparently were all members of a club called the Throttle Stompers around 1940-41.........is this the club they belonged to?.............thanks....Andy Douglas
