Technical How did you mount your club plaque?

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by ct1932ford, Aug 19, 2019.

  1. Ok it is hot and humid here in Connecticut, so I am spending too much time thinking.:p
    Started mounting a club plaque and was thinking:rolleyes: should it be hanging swinging in the wind or ridged? Tried to remember and thought they swung free. Like I said over thinking. Hey it's a slow news day.:rolleyes:
  2. I really don't like them swinging free although I know that a lot of folks did it that way back in the past........ 20151126_0923432_zpsuspeggab.jpg 20160830_180757.jpg

    Long ago, in a galaxy not so far away...The 'kustom' guys hung 'em on 3/16" chain, center of rear bumper. They'd drag when coming up or going down a driveway...
    When 'rakes' were coming in, they got moved up on the gravel pans, (pre-'49 Fords & Mercs, also the 'hot rods' (fenderless types) were solidly mounting them on the rear, opposite license plate.

    Then, in around 1975, the rod run thing had peaked. Lodi was the place for 'Nostalgia, everybody was outdoin' everybody else.
    My favorite 'trick' was the guys from Hayward, one had a '46 Ford coupe, chopped...Taildragger, everything molded off, top was chopped...DeSoto bumpers, box skirts. BUT:
    The extreme thing was the club plaque. It was hung 'old style', from the rear bumper, on 3/16" rusty chain. Plaque said, "Head Hunters", across the bottom, 'Hayward'.
    You couldn't make out 'Hayward', because they'd ground the bottom off 3/4", and made it real a #20 disc!
    Looked as if it had travelled 200,000 miles in its long life as a 'kustom'.
    I was familiar with Hayward Head Hunters club. That's how I knew it was Hayward. Couldn't read was all gone! Great stunt!!!

  13. It seems I recall a post a while back talking about loosing there club plaque when they were hanging with chains.

    When our club finally decided to have the plaques made I first mounted it in the rear on a modified tail light license plate bracket and left it like that for a couple of months.
    but after see it when Tom posted the photo's of the All Deuce Run I just thought it was too much on the rear of the car.

    The 1932 license plate is larger than most of the other states plate and the club plaque is the smaller size it just looked odd to me.



    So I left it off the car for a while and recently made a bracket and mounted it on the front spreader bar, I'm happy with it now. HRP

    Is this going on the coupe or the roadster, or both?

  19. Our club doesn't have a plaque, (Kent Island Cruisers) so I hung an old generic one on chains. It's been on five or six cars I've had, who knows how many before I acquired it around 20 years ago... 20190728_122504.jpg

  20. I was coached by the guys in our club how to hang them with chain.

    Mine just drags on the ground when I lower the rear a bit.

  22. Fortunately we are not required to run a front license plate, I am unsure when the law changed, I assume it was in the 80's when we the DMV started issuing a new sticker with the year and we kept the same tag instead of replacing the license plate. HRP

    Re pop (O’Brians) of my dads club dating back to early 60’s. My dad owned the blown Olds that was in the club altered. Not sure why Al’s name was on the drivers door, probably because he was a body man and painted the car....
