About the club
The club formed in 1981 and held monthly meetings in member's homes or businesses. The programs were auto related with some giving demonstrations in their shops. Dues were $15 and the money was used to cover newsletter mailing and meeting room costs. The first newsletter was called "The Collier Collector". In 1985 the newsletter became called the "Running Board".
The club has met at the Naples Depot, various Bank Community rooms and at several churches in Naples. The December Christmas party has been an annual event since the club was formed. Membership in 1983 was 42 and 50 two years later. The club has not always met during the summer. Usually September was the start of regular monthly meetings. Some events were held for members in the summer. We currently have a "Cooks Night Out" in the summer, where the members get together at one of the local restaurants which replaces the monthly meetings.
The members have been on many group trips - mostly thought out Florida. Edson and Irene Williams conducted these trips for several years. Day trips to closer activities and car shows have also been enjoyed by members.
The first president was Dr. Mason Seibel
Membership dues covers both husband and wife.
