Nah, a lone wolf is just that: a wolf that has been chased out of the pack because he/she is queer or has some sort of genetic problem that is a threat to the pack.

Yep - seen 'em in a lot of circa 1962 Hot Rod mags.

I wish I could find a not-overly-abused one for the front of my '64 Fairlane quad cab .

The "lone wolf" term does come out of the 50's and you'll find the lone wolf bumper plaques in JC Whitney catalogs going back to about 1951.

I remember in the late 50's and 60's there were lots of car clubs and every member hung his badge of courage on the back bumper of his rod in the form of a metal club plaque. In my home town it was the "Road Angels, Sycamore, Ill".

At the same time there were a few guys who really didn't care for the idea of joining up with a bunch of other people or didn't feel the need. So the "NO CLUB, LONE WOLF" plaque sort of became the country's original bumper sticker and a way for these rodders to assert their independence...from EVERYTHING.

Do you remember the Laverne and Shirley episode where Lenny wanted Lone Wolf put on his jacket, but they put One Wolf instead??
