    Anybody out there remember a Port Arthur TX Car Club from the 50s named 'Wicked City Car Club'?

    Supposedly became 'The Rebels' after a suggestion from some official to change the name for sake of the city's reputation.

    My Dad was a club member. Only a very few members still around now.

    Any knowledge or memories out ther, please post up.

    They used to drag race in the Gulf Coast area. Lots of time spent at strip in Nederland TX. I think it was called Golden Triangle Drag Strip or Twin Cities Drag Strip...my memory fails me...lol
    My Dad raced a B Stock 1961 Ford Galaxy back in the day.
    Good memories!

    I don't remember the Rebels but I did spend many Saturday nights at Golden Triangle Drag Strip.

    Funny you should mention Walter. My brother still lives in Nederland, and he knows Walter...small world indeed.

    He plans to contact Walter and talk about the club.

    Anybody else got anything about Wicked City Car Club, or Rebels Car Club from Port Arthur TX?

    Let's hear from you!

    I dated a beautiful young lady who lived in Port Arthur way back in the '60's.
