Well I was told that the original chapter of New Friends Car Club started in Bakersfield in the mid 70s...  I wanted to know if anyone knows if thats right or knows any of the old members.

im wanna say that is true. heres some history for you that ive been told by family and family friends, that were FRIENDS C.C. members.

before NEW FRIENDS started there was a club that my uncle and his friends started called FRIENDS from reedley cali. they were in the original LO-LYSTICS C.C. from visalia cali which no longer exist but does in the sacramento area, but for whatever reason they formed there own club which was FRIENDS. from what the president of FRIENDS told me and other members. guys from another town wanted to branch out and make a chapter of FRIENDS, but the OG FRIENDS didnt want to. so these guys formed NEW FRIENDS. im almost positive its bakersfield but for some reason tulare comes to minds as well.

why dont you get ahold of MIKE from new friends he knows some info on NEW FRIENDS as well. this is just what i was told from the members and founders of FRIENDS. :cool:

IF YOU WANT MIKES NUMBER PM ME AND ILL GIVE IT TO YOU. IM SURE HE WILL HAVE NO PROBLEMS SHARING HISTORY WITH A FELLOW CLUB MEMBER :cool:

That would be great... Somewhere along the way our past kinda got lost. The Tri-Cities, WA chapter started in 1997 and I joined in 2001, I'm just tryin to figure out our roots.
