Cal-Rods SGV: Featured Car Club Follow-Up | Pomona Swap Meet

If I had to describe my perfect date, I might go with April 15th... because it's not too hot, not too cold. All    you need is a light jacket. Plus, that was when the Cal-Rods Car Club of San Gabriel Valley was featured on the Main Aisle of the Pomona Swap Meet!

The next Cal-Rods Membership Meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, July 3, 2018 at the Finish Line Grill, 2201 N. White Ave., Pomona, CA.  

Meetings start at 7 PM on the first Tuesday of each month.  

Join Us!  Cal-Rods welcomes your attendance. 

About Us… 

In the mid-fifties Baldwin Park High School was no doubt just like hundreds, no make that thousands, of other high schools around the U.S. There were music clubs, service clubs, athletic clubs and clubs for just about every special interest on every high school campus.

I suppose Baldwin Park was typical in the fact  it had several car clubs too: The Deckers. the Nerfers, the Ratchets, the Wambombies the Loafers and the CAL- RODS, just to name a few.

The CAL-RODS Car Club was started in1954 by Don Scurti (a Junior in 1954) on the advice of Clyde Gorsuch so the boys would "have something to do". Mr. Gorsuch had talked to Scurti for almost a year until they finally decided to form a club to teach the boys how to work on their cars and to learn what makes them run.

With Gorsuch as an advisor, Don Scurti and the boys sat down to work out a constitution and set goals for themselves. These fellas were ambitious and they were not going to wait around for someone to give them a recreation center because that was not going to happen, so they started scouting around for a clubhouse. Pete Peterson owned the service station at the corner of Merced and Garvey and he told the boys they could use the old barn at the back of his property if they fixed it up.  read more
