Lost an old post. Clutch Jumpers CC

Post by RebStew on April 19th 2011, 7:48 pm

I found some more pics of the old car club here in Newport called the Clutch Jumpers. I can't find where the thread went to. Anyone recall? The forum has so much stuff on it the search isn't worth 5 cents. If you know where it is please post a link. I may just be looking over it.

Looks like it wasn't just the cars that sucked gas and breathed fire back then with some of these guys.

Hey guys I was the President of the Clutch Jumpers in the 50's. We had a club house and gargae in Npt. in an alley N. of 10th near Isaabella. We also helped run Thonhill Drag Strip. Baldy McClaren, club member was announcer there and I helped out. Be glad to answer questions. I still have my light blue club jacket. Live in Boone County

I am Cliff Wartman, who was Pres of the Jumpers. I can't believe I am seeing some of those photos again. I am at the desk in the photo taken at our car show at Npt. Shoppin Center. Yes that is also my Charger R/T and Mustnag. Others in the club who show up on pics are Ed Ferring, Bob Halderman. Yes that is Thornhill we used to help run it. Member Walter "Baldy" McClaren was announcer. You brought back many found memories. And yes we had a good relationship with the city and police.
