Rebooting Cadillac Club for Vancouver, BC area
« on: January 04, 2018, 11:36:29 AM »
What is the best way to reactivate a Cadillac Club chapter?  I live in Vancouver, British Columbia just 2.5 hours north of Seattle.  I've found 48 other interested owners, and we are all members of the same CCBC Lower Mainland Facebook page:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/cadillacclubbc/

Is there an easy way to get a list of the previous members of the Cadillac Club of BC? 

Is it possible to get a mailing list for owners who belong to cadillaclasalleclub.org, or have a message sent to those owners telling them that we're starting up the club again?

Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated!

Take care,
Steve

Contact either Mike/Nancy Book in the office or the Western Regional Vice President for the best way to get started.
Hit the Club Home Page for who this is at present. And thank you for getting off the dime and doing something about it. If it were not for guys like you that think that doing things like this is important, we'd be in dire straits.

14 years ago I bought a pristine 1974 Fleetwood on eBay. It was located in Vancouver BC. Prior to dparting, I contacted members from the Vancouver Cadillac club. The vehicle needed repairs for the drive back. What a fond memory of such a wonderful group of people! I was extended an invitation to stay with a family in Surry. I attended their local Cadillac club meeting! I long for the opportunity to visit BC again...and worth mention...one of the best steaks Iíve ever had! Iím sorry to hear this group did not remain active, but certainly encourage your efforts!

Hi Steve,

Back in the day, many of the members of the CCBC were from the Vintage Car Club of Canada.  I suggest you go to one of their meeting to try to solicit new support and members. 

Sadly quite a few members of the Original Club have either passed or moved on which was one of the reasons behind our inactivity.

I still keep in touch with the Clubs Dealer Sponsor (Dueck's) so if you need a contact, let me know.

I still remember your visit V63, that was a beautiful car that you bought.

Cheers!

Alfred

Images attached of the 1974 Fleetwood Brougham with 8,000 miles. All original, from Vancouver BC.

The original owner was from India whom married a significantly older Dr in BC. She was a very young woman  and she picked the colors (cranberry fire mist) of the car when they ordered it as newly weds. They only used the car for special occasion, and the last registration was 1986. She also had a 1977 Seville for many years she spoke fondly of. A later visit to India she experienced a terrible car accident that left her in a wheel chair.

Her husband had passed.

She decided to part with her beautiful fleetwood. It was such a pleasure meeting her, Iím reminded I need to call her and say hello.

The car is now in Norway.

Ron Zahn, the international VP would be a good contact too.
