Anyone recognize this plate?

My brothers and I are searching for the Scavengers car club plate attached to Dads car - 53 Chevy? Dad passed away several years ago and we think this plate might have been sold at a garage sale around the Sacramento, Ca. area around 2001. The Scavangers were around Bakersfield, Ca. I would be suprised if this plate ever turned up again. That being said, anyone know who could reproduce something like this? From what I remember, it was etched from a block of aluminum.

When I was at the NHRA museum in Pamona a few years ago I remember seeing a whole wall of car club plaques. You might try asking them.

two clubs, one from Canada, one from Minn. The second link will make a plaque.

I have no idea...

I can, however, say that I love looking at vintage pictures! A priceless piece of our culture, and a excellent tool for those making 'era correct' hotrods.

Yeah the pictures are great. Another chance is Vic Hubbards speed and marine in Hayward Ca. They have a large collection of them hanging on the wall.

They were cast in aluminum. I have a few in my garage, wish I had this one for you.

And just so you know they are never called "Plates" at least not that I have ever heard them called that. They are commonly called "club plaques".

I don't think it's the same guys but there are some cool pictures here of a "Scavengers" club. http://rides.webshots.com/album/292023895BLqEas

Thanks for all the replies. I have learned that they are plaques not plates. I did find a place called something Truckers. I sent them an email but no response yet. I love the old pictures also. Those were taken in a dump South of Bakersfield called "Pumpkin Center". That is where I grew up.

O'Brien Truckers is the name of the place. They do have a lot of that sort of stuff.
