The Claycord Online Museum – The Drifters Car Club of Concord

This came from our friend “Grumpy Old Man”, who says “Attached is a rendering of the Drifters Car Club plaque, which my late brother made in about 1959. This design was used to have several plaques made at the Cowell foundry, out of cast aluminum. The car club was active from about 1958 until about 1965. It was a small club but maybe some of the Claycord readers will remember it, and if they know of the existence of one of these plaques, maybe they could let me know. Thanks for your great service.

Thanks to you, “Grumpy Old Man”, for sharing this with us.

Does anybody out there have one of these old plaques? If so, email and we’ll get you in touch with “Grumpy Old Man”.

Dear Mayor, Thank You Again.
Dear Claycord Friends, Please stop being SO darn NICE! I will no longer earn the moniker of “Grumpy”!. Just kidding, may God bless us, each and every one.

Many of us in our car club collect plaques, especially ones for the bay area from the 50’s and 60’s. Another cool club from the 50’s was the Primers of Concord. Our own club was established in 1952 and had a magazine with articles written by members of other local clubs. the magazine was called Dip Stick.

This looks a lot like the logo for the Strictly To Go pizza place. Maybe there’s some tie-in here??

Does anyone remember After Hours CC or the Devious Ones in the early 90’s? I started up After Hours CC when Devious Ones separated.
