Crosley Car Owners Club (CCOC)

Recommended Posts

Guest LouisRugani

The <span style="font-weight: bold">Crosley Car Owners Club (CCOC)</span> was first organized in early 1952 while Crosley auto and truck production was still underway.

Its most famous member was President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who owned a 1951 Super and held <span style="font-weight: bold">CCOC</span> Membership #1300.

By the early 1960s, however, the <span style="font-weight: bold">

CCOC</span> had dwindled away to only sporadic mailings.

On January 15, 2006 the <span style="font-weight: bold">CCOC</span> was revived as an online-based club <span style="font-weight: bold">groups.yahoo.com/group/Crosley</span> starting with sixty members (since doubled) and a large and continually growing collection of Crosley history and imagery, both recent and vintage. There are no dues, and all <span style="font-weight: bold">CCOC</span> meets are scheduled at existing functions.

Actual Crosley ownership is not mandatory and the only requirement is an interest in Crosley preservation and restoration.

Thanks to all for your support.

You need to be talking to Jim Bollman. He's the biggest (and only) Crosley person I know of on the AACA Fourms.

Since my name came up, I will respond. The CCOC was restarted because an individual got upset with the Crosley Automobile Club, that has a paper and web presents.

and sponsors the large National show in Wauseon.

I'm the web master and on the Board of Directors of CAC and we welcome all Crosley related cars be them bone stock, racers or modified.

By the way the name Crosley Car Owners Club is probably owned by Service Motors (largest Crosley vendor in the world), they bought the original club and ran it the last few years of it's existence.

<span style="font-weight: bold">Thank you for welcoming us. Wayne. It's very much appreciated.

To clarify: indeed, the revived CCOC is most certainly committed to restoration, preservation, and the perpetuation of the Crosley legends and legacy. </span>

<span style="font-style: italic">As to Mr. Bollman's comments: those reflect his personal opinions. </span>
