King Midgets West
A Chapter of the International King Midget Car Club
A few of us out here in the western boondocks get together three times per year for meetings of King Midgets West, a chapter of the King Midget Club. Our 14 charter members have more than doubled. Our small group includes all three models of King Midget, some stock and some modified. Members need not own a King Midget, nor need they bring their car to meets. We encourage but don't require membership in the International King Midget Car Club www.kingmidgetcarclub.org.
We have no rules, no dues, no officers, no newsletter, no awards, no competitions and all King Midget fans from anywhere are welcome. We communicate via this website, email, sending notices of meets and summaries of them to all members.
This red Model 3 is our logo and identification. At our Spring 2012 meeting we donned blue polo shirts from L.L.Bean with this patch sewn on. Wow! Instant recognition! Patches are available for $8 each (from Bob Vahsholtz – address below) but there's no "uniform" and no obligation to buy. Wearing the patch has proven helpful at car shows.
We generally have three annual meets in California along with occasional encounters at car shows and each others garages, and are open to meets in other areas here in the West. Plan a meet in your area and we'll help you—and try to come. We like driving our Kings, doing fun things, exchanging tips and dining, with our mates involved (though singles are just as welcome).
If you're interested in joining us, even just to stay in touch, simply send an email or letter to King Midgets West at the address below.
