San Diego Woodies

San Diego Woodies is the place for wooden car enthusiasts. The local club schedules and participates in many car-related events in the greater San Diego area and schedules activities such as cruises and Woodie meets. This chapter of the National Woodie Club was formed in 2001 to foster camaraderie among woodie enthusiasts from near and far and to provide a forum through which owners and fans of woodies may share their common infatuation for these great treasures of automobile history.
