    Hey, I'm new here so this may have been covered elswhere but I couldn't find it. I'm looking for information on the Throttle Merchants car club from San Fernando, what I would like to find most of all are pictures of their club plaque and jackets. I looked in the club plaque data base and it wasn't there. I hope someone out there can help me out, thanks.

    The only Throttle Merchants plaque I have a photo of is for this Russetta Timing Association club, but I'm not sure where they were based .....

    Dennis O'Brien has a couple of patterns with this club name but I don't think any of them are from the Southern California area.

    Well I know they were an RTA associate club and I know Tony Nancy was a member, other than that I can't find much on them. Thank you for the picture.
     
  4. FWIW, back in 1995. I made ten of those plaques for the fellow here in Massachusetts who was restoring Tony Nancy's 22 JR roadster. He got a blown up print from Gray Baskerville of the plaques from the Hot Rod Magazine archives to go by. According to Dan, when he took the car to the Bakersfield Reunion, a couple of guys approached him and asked where he got the plaques from for the car. Seems they were original members......
