Renegades have been able to preserve the meaning of their motto, “Helpfulness is Friendliness”.
Renegades have made their organization available to virtually any charitable project and have supported both physically and financially the campaigns of the March of Dimes – City of Hope – and the Exceptional Children Foundation, to name a few. Even the periodical visitation to the Red Cross Blood Bank is one of their services.
On the other hand, many a producer of car shows throughout the West have been saved from sure financial disaster by the participation of these Renegade Knights and their automobiles. Not many months ago, a group of 18 members caravanned over 300 miles with 11 show cars in tow to help a friend in need without thought of compensation.
The Renegades Car Club of Long Beach was incorporated as a California non-profit organization, February 5, 1958. Just one year later in the February issue of Car Craft Magazine, Renegades were named over hundreds of other clubs throughout America, “Car Club of the Year, 1958.” We’re justly proud of our achievement and in no way will any member willingly be accountable for a deed which would jeopardize our club’s reputation.
Membership in the Renegades requires ownership of a custom (modified) automobile in show condition; a driving record free of accidents and traffic violations.
They subscribe wholeheartedly to the adage, that life is the most precious possession on earth, drive your car at all times in a manner which will safeguard it
