History Dad's club plaque

Discussion in 'Traditional Hot Rods' started by qmdv, Feb 4, 2019.

  1. Tomorrow I will build a mount to hang my dad's car club plaque. He along with Bill Burke, Joe Hunt and a few others were in a club in LA in the late 30's. Club name was Road Rebels. Here is dad with his 34 roadster. Oh and that is an original Carson Top

    With a little porting and ignition work by Joe Hunt (magneto fame) it did 98.7 at Muroc Dry Lake

    They had a reunion in the mid 60's at our house in Burbank, CA. Somebody had a local foundry cast up some plaques and painted them for members at the reunion. They forgot the "S" at the end but that is ok

    Dad and I started a 32 Highboy about 40 years ago then life got in the way. All we had was chassis parts. I bought a Brookville 8 years ago and am getting closes to finishing it. I think of dad whenever I work on it. I have to have this plaque on our car.

  4. My Dad's Car Club that he and a few other guys in Pewaukee Wisconsin started in I believe 1956. I still have his original plaque and have worn it on every one of my "Hot Rods" since his passing in 1974 at only 51 years old.
    Right nom it hangs on my garage wall as I don't have a car worthy to wear it. Maybe someday I will .
    I'll be 71 in May and even though I've had it on several cars since 1974, I'm not gonna say I'm done.
