BADASS ODDSQUAD CLASSIC CAR CLUB! – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 628 – Sequel to yesterday’s vlog lands Fireball on a Wedneday Night Classic Car Club event with Oddsquad.

From WIKI… A car club or automotive enthusiast community is a group of people who share a common interest in motor vehicles. Car clubs are typically organized by enthusiasts around type of vehicle (e.g. Corvette, Mustang), brand (e.g. Jeep), or similar interest (e.g. off-roading). Traditional car clubs were off-line organizations, but automotive on-line communities have flourished on the internet.

Classic Car Clubs have been a form of gathering car aficionados for many years that focus a passion for a certain type of car or driving activity.

Historically, car clubs refer to off-line entities, typically organized as non-profits and run by volunteers (who were most often elected). Some clubs were large enough to be run as a paid business with salaried employees; in the 1960s, some were sponsored by car dealers.

Many car clubs charge membership fees in exchange for benefits, such as publications and events. The publications typically contain photographs, messages from other members, service and parts advice, items and vehicles wanted and/or for sale, and historical material of interest to the membership.

Car clubs often host gatherings (called “meets”) which often also welcome interested non-members. Car clubs also may engage in other activities of various types, including races, cruising, shows, “mod” days when garage equipment and service tools are available for members to perform and assist each other with DIY work, or community service activities.

Meets are basically a time for the club to hang out with one another and to talk about cars and do normal stuff, such as bowling, eating, movies, etc.

Additionally, some car clubs have a “prospecting” status, where prospective members of the club meet with established club members, to assess their suitability within the club. During this time, prospective members will help work on club cars, attend events, and sometimes perform tasks; such as helping to park cars at a show, or assisting with ticket sales, etc.

Upon the completion of their prospect status, members will be “patched in,” whereupon they are considered full members of the club. In traditional car clubs in the US, this is typically signified by the awarding of a jacket or T-shirt with the club’s name and logo on the back, and the awarding of a bronze/aluminium “drag plate,” to be hung on the member’s car, displaying their membership status and club name.
