WELCOME TO THE CADILLAC & LASALLE CLUB, INC.
The Cadillac & LaSalle Club, Inc. (CLC) is an international organization of over 7,000 members with 18,000+ collectible automobiles built by Cadillac. The Club provides activities and services for enthusiasts of all Cadillacs, from the single cylinder models to the exotic V-16's. Membership is open to persons anywhere in the world and ownership of a Cadillac is not required.
Who we are
The Cadillac & LaSalle Club, Inc. (CLC) was founded in Detroit in 1958. We are the largest active international organization for Cadillac enthusiasts, with almost 50 domestic regions, 18 international affiliate clubs, and eleven chapters that focus on special interests such as LaSalles, '41 Cadillacs, Allantés, Broughams, etc.
We were initially founded to encourage enthusiasts to maintain, preserve, and restore collectible Cadillacs and LaSalles built from 1902-1942. Now the CLC recognizes all vehicles built by Cadillac. We promote the development, collection, publication and exchange of helpful information pertaining to our cars. We also promote social fellowship for club members.
Old-car hobby in full swing
May means spring is in full swing, which should bring several thoughts to mind.
One that is not particularly pleasant is spring cleaning, but those of us in the old-car hobby do tend to be hoarders, thus making the spring cleaning chore even more important.
You may all thank my wife for this month’s subject, as I asked her for ideas. I am probably afflicted with the hoarder gene as bad as anyone. We all need to dig through our boxes of parts we are keeping for a future need and see what we can bring to the Grand National to sell in the swap meet or donate for the Museum & Research Center auction.
I am certain there are members who have cars that sit 98 percent (if not more) of the time, don’t get driven, are getting very dusty with tires low on air and batteries half dead. If that is you, consider placing the car for sale inThe Self-Starter or the website’s Message Forum, so it may be used as intended, loved and driven by a fellow CLC member. Or, even better, donate it for the MRC auction.
Spring Into Action!
April is a wonderful month no matter where you live, as spring has arrived, and our friends in the Southern Hemisphere are entering autumn, so great weather for everyone.
I have been mentally making up my "to-do" list all winter long to get the fleet ready for another year of activities. We encourage all members to belong to their local Region or International Affiliate, plus keep in mind that a member may belong to as many Regions, Chapters and International Affiliates as he or she wishes.
One will never be bored with all the activities available. My wife and I are planning to attend the Grand European this summer in the Netherlands. Several other U.S. members are attending, and we would love to have others join us. Contact our VP of International Affiliates, Toni Nabholz Huse, if you would like more information.
