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.
