Club History

Withe more than 50 years of history, the Oldsmobile Club of Southern California is one of the largest and oldest chapter of the O.C.A.

The Oldsmobile Club of Southern California was founded in December of 1972 by a small group of Oldsmobile enthusiasts who recognized a need for a local organization to help promote the preservation of the then classic Olds models from the first eight decades of production. We celebrated 50 years together September of 2022.

The first meeting place was at South Gate Park and over the years, the club has moved around its monthly meeting place to 16 different locations in an effort to accommodate the continually growing membership as well as make the meeting location be as centrally located as possible. Some of these meeting sites included the GM Training Center in Burbank, Century Oldsmobile in Van Nuys, Pioneer Olds in North Hollywood, and Browning Oldsmobile in Cerritos, and as today in Orange Old Town.

In 1974, the local membership voted to become a chapter of the Oldsmobile Club of America, and to this day is one of the oldest and largest chapters of the O.C.A. with members owning Oldsmobile’s from the early 1900’s all the way to Final Five Hundred 2004 models.

During the years the Club has been growing larger and has been involved in dozens of car shows, tours, banquets, charity and associations, and many more events throughout the Southwest and all over Southern California.
