  14. Hey Brett, Are you the pinstripe guy who sets up at Hometown HD ?? Love your work.
  15. How about the Belmont Street Saints....been around forever !!!
  16. If the club is anything like the Tarantulas car club here in Anderson that I researched for 3 years before I found any real information, the club you are looking for may have been active in the late 40's and early 50's.

    No one knew anything tarantulas until I had one of the past members get in touch with me here on the hamb me about the plaque, none of the previous members are into old cars and the club was started at Old Boys High School, it turned out that I have known one of the gentleman in the club most of my life and was a well known mechanic in town.

    They were active from '57 to '62. HRP

  17. Yup, That's me!

  18. Id love to get some done on my dash and maybe under hood, I wish the car could makeit but I know I wont get it done in time to.

    That is an awesome story HRP, I know a few of the local guys but none of them are much oilder than me so they dont remember any of the old time clubs

    Thanks for the reply. I had zero knowledge of the car until seeing it pop up in a Pinterest set- looked closely at lettering and saw "Greensboro" under Southern Automotive- I'm sure someone knows what happened to it! I'd love to think it still exists under a tarp in someone's garage.
