  Club History
  The Creeper's Car Club was established and incorporated as a non-profit organization in August 1960 in Smyrna, Georgia by a small group of men who shared similar interests in show cars, drag racing, and rods.  That is now nearly 50 years ago!
 
Charter members of the Creeper's Car Club and the car each owned at the time, were:

  For the first few years of the sixties, the group became deeply involved in car shows.  They co-sponsored the Atlanta Car Show at Lakewood Fairgrounds with Promotions, Inc. in 1963, then sponsored the same show at the Atlanta Merchandise Mart the following year.  The Creepers also held a car show at the North Georgia Fair for ten years and showed their cars at various malls and shopping centers over the years.
 
In the mid-sixties, the club bought an AA/Altered Ford roadster drag racer from the Lowe Brothers, a car originally built by Art Crisman.  They entered the roadster in car shows and drag races, where several times it came within one second of the national record.  This car was sold in the early seventies and has changed owners several times in the Atlanta area.  It's whereabouts today is not known.

The Creepers don't claim to have invented the rod run, but they certainly were one of its early innovators, especially in the southeastern part of the country.  In 1964, for instance, the entire club drove its cars to Panama City, Florida, 13 cars in all.  The Creepers were one of only two clubs represented at the first Gatlinburg Rod Run.  Another claim to fame for the 48 year old club is its 100% membership in the National Street Rod Association, one of the first Georgia street rod clubs to do so.

The club tries to keep very active in the sport of street rodding, participating in as many rod runs and car shows as possible, many in the southeast and throughout the 48 states.

Involvement in community activities is another hallmark of the Creepers, who have contributed money to a number of charities including Calvary Children's Home, Cobb County Association for Retarded Children, Scottish Rite Children's Hospital, The American Cancer Society, and Rhubarb Jones' Leukemia Walk Across Georgia, among others.  It is not known what the total donations are since the club's inception, but in the last 20 years alone, the club has donated over $365,000 to charities!

The 'Club Car' - 1966

 

Guy Lindsey receiving an appreciation award from Maxie Fuller

In the early years, the Creepers were fortunate to have the support of several non-members.  Once such individual was Guy Lindsey.  Guy was a car enthusiast and helped the club by providing facilities for working on the club car as well as a place to hold regular meetings.

In appreciation for all of his help and support, Guy was unanimously voted into the club as its first honorary member.

 

Incorporated in the State of Georgia, the creepers have as their objectives the promotion of interest in various types of street rod activity and the creation of good fellowship and sportsmanship.  They uphold the principles of good government and strive to bring about a clearer understanding on the part of the public, press, and law enforcement agencies of organized street rod activities.  An NSRA safety inspection sticker on each and every street rod in the club is another of its goals.

  All Creeper Car Club members are also members of the National Street Rod Association (NSRA).  Many Creepers are also members of the Georgia Street Rod Association (GSRA).
