The San Diego Woodies Club

San Diego Woodies was formed in 2001 as a chapter of the National Woodie Club. We are a 501 (c) 7 non profit organization. We exist to promote interest in woodies; to educate owners and the public on their history, beauty, usefulness and uniqueness; and to provide an association through which woodie owners and enthusiasts may exchange information on history, building, restoration or modification techniques and share experiences. The woodie is a special kind of car, which deserves special recognition.

We have several events scheduled throughout the year as well as host the largest wooden bodied car show in the country, Wavecrest. We also participate in other events held by other woodie clubs in California as well as the National Woodie Club. We encourage you to browse through our website and event calendar and come join in the fun. Membership is open to anyone and does not require that you own a woodie, only that you have a appreciation and love for these beautiful vehicles.

A Message from the SD Woodies Board of Directors and Wavecrest 2020 Committee:

After months of strategizing how to stage the Wavecrest 2020 event amid the Covid-19 pandemic, and with an abundance of caution, the Wavecrest Committee and the SD Woodie Board has come to the conclusion that we have no choice and will have to cancel this year's event.
This decision was not made lightly and involved much deliberation and conversations with both the City of Encinitas and our Event Sponsors. In the end, all involved decided that the risk to our San Diego Woodie Club Members, friends, and the public attending far outweighed the possible joy the weekend event might bring. We also were unable to obtain assurances from the City that they would allow the event to be staged this year.
Health circumstances permitting, some of our Club Members plan on organizing a cruise on September 19th to have a venue for us to get together on the day that Wavcrest was scheduled to take place. While this will not be a Club sanctioned event we will however use our website and e-blast system to keep everyone updated regarding this cruise.
Thank you for your understanding in these trying times. We look forward to seeing everyone soon and at the Wavcrest 2021 event, to be held on Saturday, September 18, 2021!
