About Bay Area Roadsters

The Bay Area Roadsters Club was officially formed in 1959 by founder Don Brusseau and four other members. From humble beginning the Club has progressed to the present where the maximum membership is 35. The Club currently has 10 members with 25 years or more, which qualifies them as Lifetime members. There are also 8 more members with 10 or more years of membership. In addition there are four honorary lifetime members of the Club.

The Bay Area Roadsters and the LA Roadsters co-founded the Roadster Roundup which has continued on, and is now in it's fifth decade. This invitational only Event is considered by many as the Grand Daddy of modern day Rod Runs. The B.A.R. as it is commonly known, was very instrumental in helping to keep the Street Rodding alive during the Muscle-Car era of the 60's and 70's.

The Club encourages Street Rod use. Members are required to attend monthly meetings and drive their roadsters on several weekend Club Runs. "NO SHOW QUEENS ALLOWED"

Although most members' roadsters have been shown at most of the major car shows and have done their share of winning (Several America's Most Beautiful Roadster winners) all are driven regularly and for long distances. Trips to other Street Rod Events across the United States and Canada are commonplace for many. All roadsters are inspected regularly for safety and appearance.

In 2009 one of the Members Dave Shaub completed an AMAZING TASK, driving his 32 Roadster through 49 States in less than Seven Days! This was a charity drive benefiting the children and families at the Stanford Ronald McDonald House. Dave drove 9856 miles and so far has raised over $100,000, with more donations and pledges still coming in. For the full story check out Dave's Web Site @ 49IN7.com.

Bottom Line Keep it Fun, Safe and in the Wind.
