Hi Jeff,

No, but you're welcome to form one. You'll need at least nine other CLC members to join you, and with the many 1959s in the CLC, that shouldn't be difficult.

For more information on starting a Chapter, please contact Bob Crimmins, the CLC's Chapter coordinator. He lives in New Jersey and his contact information is in the CLC International Membership Directory.

Interestingly, when the 1959 Buick owners created a separate division or chapter within the Buick Club of America (BCA), it unleashed a great deal of additional enthusiasm and initiative surrounding the cars. 

The separate chapter planned a large and successful 50th anniversary gathering in 2009; generated all the content for two issues of the BCA's magazine; produces an excellent annual calendar; spawned its own online discussion forum, etc.

I have no doubt that a 1959 Cadillac Chapter could make ownership of these iconic cars even more rewarding!


A 59/60 Chapter would attract a LOT more people...

Plus even more arguments as to why the '59 was better than the '60, or that Cadillac got it best with the "toned-down" '60.
