The group was founded in 1983 by Ron Rapp and now has over 500 members. It publishes an award winning newsletter six times a year and holds annual conventions and technical seminars at locations all over the U.S. The club store sells technical items, hardcover books published by the club, technical restoration manuals and videos and other items to enhance the ownership of these great automobiles.
