Ok I have a question. For years I've been complaining that there are no real car clubs in my area. There a club with mostly kids with imports and we have a very old and established Corvette club but nothing for the regular (Cadillac) guys.

I'm looking for advice on starting a good solid all around American car club. Who's done this before? Who has pointers, ideas, do's and dont's?

Lets here what you know. I want a damn car club in my area so like everything else in my life I'm gonna make one.

I'm trying to start one in the philly area but only one guy has joined.

I just set up a website and posted the link here. Thats all I have done.

I'm trying not to form a website with people that want to meet. I want a real live club where people meet face to face. The club may have a website later but I don't' want it to be the other way. That never works.

Then its just another website trying to be something. I want a solid group of people in a mature club first.

When Ford had a Mustang club here they'd organize things like a scavenger hunt or some type of rally and the winner got a cheap prize or trophy. The hunt would end in a park with picnic tables and food, at a lodge or restaurant. It was very successful.
