About Our Club

Just A Bit Of History

The Counts of the Cobblestone Car Club was established in 1957, and is one of the oldest active car clubs in the US.
The Counts of the Cobblestone Car Club, Inc. is a social club dedicated to a simple slogan, "Fun with Cars."  Formed in 1957, the club quickly grew from five to eleven members. Through the early 80's the club was strictly limited to 25 members, but with a bylaws change now has over 55 active members, and we continue the search for new members. The Counts affiliated themselves with the National Street Rod Association (NSRA) in the 70's, and members have the option of joining NSRA and enjoying the many benefits. Members of the club are encouraged to have a complete or project vehicle meeting club requirements at all times. Many club members are experienced with building a rod or machine from the ground up and offer advice and assistance to those just beginning in the hobby. In addition to "Fun with Cars" at shows, rod runs, garage tours, and other events, the activities of the Counts primarily support two goals: 

1.  Promotion of safety in modified and restored vehicles through the NSRA inspection program.

2.  Provide cash donations and club member assistance to local civic and charitable organizations.
       Now that you know a little bit about us, feel free to stop by a club meeting and meet some of the guys and gals. Regular meetings are held on Tuesday evenings @ 7:00pm at the clubhouse in Blackhawk.  A map is located on the "contact us" page, shown on the right. Remember we always have an information booth at the Count's Car Show, and we are always accepting new member applications.
