The Los Angeles Roadsters Car Club was formed in 1957 and is still going strong. Membership consists of 30 active members, 11 lifetime members, 19 associate members and 5 honorary members, all with pre-36 Roadsters.
In 1960, the Club started the now famous Los Angeles Roadsters Show and Swap Meet. Over the years, the show has become a Father’s Day tradition for car enthusiasts from around the world. The show has earned it’s reputation as “the greatest roadster show on earth”. The show features more than 800 pre-36 roadsters, 1,500 pre-72 specialty cars, a giant swap meet, and commercial vendor midway.
The annual Roadster Show is planned and operated by the active, lifetime and associate members and their spouses. This is an event that is a family affair and an annual tradition in the street rodding industry.
The Los Angeles Roadsters are well know for their beautiful roadsters as well as their Club uniform of red shirts and white pants. This uniform has been a tradition since the Club started in 1957.
The Club promotes street rodding safety, family unity and camaraderie amongst the members and other clubs.
The Roadsters of Los Angeles Car Club was formed in 1957, and in 1968 was chartered as a 501(c)(4) non-profit corporation.
