How Do You Start a Car Club, Picking a Name and Legal Stuff

How do you go about starting a car club and how do you go about picking a name that hasn't already been taken? There is just 3 of us, as of right now, that are friends and into old cars. We are wanting to start getting together and do our own "handshake" car club like they use to be, helping each other getting our cars done. Two of us have been in car clubs that don't want to help each other out. It's always easier when you have help, especially when you need it.

I'm more wondering on picking a name and/or finding one that hasn't been used yet. Not sure how to go about that either. Don't want some other club to show up and say we copied their name. We are also not wanting to do an organized club just yet, but more of a handshake type club that helps with each other's cars.

I've found very little information and any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Travis

you have already started. friends helping friends is what it is all about.
most car clubs have to many rules. you should just keep it simple and have fun.
if you would like help organizing your club, you can contact either Goodguys or N.S.R.A.. they use to have booklets that spelled out the steps.

as far as picking a name, just go with hte one you like the most. finding one that has never been used will be next to impossible- there were five Cambusters car clubs in the `60's and no one had any problem with it.

good luck and just keep on Cruisin'!!!!!!

Thanks for the info. I looked on both sites and did not see any information about the booklets.

re:picking a name

Back in the early 60's we had a club in SE Pa. called the "Shiftiliers",since I came up with the name and designed the logo go ahead and use it.

I am a member of a small car club of about 50 members.
We called our club the "Mountainview Pistons"


There are insurance issues, etc involved in holding shows, etc.

I can't speak for our president, but you could try contacting him with a few questions. He's a good guy, and has helped answer a few questions for anothe new club that started up about 45 miles north of us.
