Car club plaques were the unique way to show everyone which car club
you belonged to. This started sometime in the 1930's and you can view some early
examples by clicking here. Plaques that have initials, like "SF", might
be listed under "San Francisco" or "San Fernando". Others
listed under a heading like "South Bay" could have various origins;
California has areas called South Bay near San Francisco, Los
Angeles and San Diego. Cities are not listed with their states because there
could be duplicate city names within two or more states; towns named Long Beach
are in CA, IN, MS, NY and WA. Canada and Australia also
have places named Long Beach. Some Long Beach plaques may have a state shown but
to avoid confusion, all are listed under Long Beach.
See if you can find a plaque for a car club you
remember or still belong to. I hope you enjoy these pages and if you have an old
plaque hanging in your garage, send me a picture of it so I can add it here for
others to enjoy. If you find a plaque listed under a wrong heading, please let me
know as I rely on the information received with the pictures to be correct, and
it sometimes isn't.

information about the club's location if the plaque has initials or other
