HISTORY

Sultans’ Car Club started at Jordan High School in the late 50’s and early 60’s. The club held dances at the National Guard Armory in Long Beach with Wolfman Jack as D.J.  The Vietnam War broke up the club for a while due to guys going to war, etc… Around 1990, previous members Dave Ellis and Doug Vaughn, along with four or five other people with nice cars attended Fuddruckers cruises on Thursday nights and decided to start up Sultans’ Car Club again. The Sultans’ began meeting again in Rich Floyd’s garage.  With Andy Heintzelman, Ken Reason, George Evans, a couple other members, and a few plaques the Sultans’ were active again.  The club eventually grew to over 80 members.  Monthly meetings, annual dues and regular club cruises were on the agenda. Now, after two decades, the club has 35 members. The Sultans’ annually do a car show in Signal Hill the first week in August, host the K-9 Officers Association car show in May, and hold a BBQ in October.  The Sultans’ provide help for youth programs and senior citizens in Signal Hill donating $5,000 annually.   The Sultans’ have supported the Veterans Car Show in Loma Linda by sponsoring a trophy and cooking at the food booth for the past two years – raising over $5,000.00 (Thank you, Veterans!). Sultans’ Car Club of Long Beach is always looking for new members with mild custom cars. The cars must have at least three modifications. Potential members must attend three consecutive meetings and cruises or shows.  Meetings are conducted the first Tuesday of each month.  Contact Rick Smith, current President, 626-407-5270 for more information.
