          On Sunday, August 24, 1969, Don Gilder came to our house inquiring if we had any interest in forming a     "Hot 


Rod Club".  The following Sunday, August 31, 1969 the following people met at the Gilders for an informal meeting to


discuss  the feasibility and desire of forming a "Hot Rod Club".




Don and Frances Gilder--32 Ford Roaster (old blue)

Chuck and Connie Kuchta--31 Model A Tudor

Cliff and Donna Simmons--41 Chevy Coupe

Ron and Jackie Learn--35 Pick-up

Russell and Judy Miscalley--27 T Bucket

Wayne and Peggy Nowell--41 Chevy

Jim and Sandy Griffith


          The following Sunday, September 7, 1969--"Rod Runners"--my choice of names--was officially formed.


          The original club officers were elected at this meeting.  To the best of my memory, the Rod Runners Officers


were as follows:


President--Chuck Kuchta

Vice President--Cliff Simmons

Secretary--Jim Griffith

Treasurer--Don Gilder


          You will notice, there were NO female officers.  "We were demonstrating and burning our bras!"


           As the engines knocked in our "Beaters," the club continued to grow. The membership dues covered: Club


annual membership and NSRA dues.


           Chuck and I always had an interest in cars.  His daily driver was a 1957 Chevy and mine was a 1964 Corvette -


-our family car was a 1966 Chevy Nova!
