    I was wondering if you could point me in the direction needed to get my hands on the chin spoiler and rear spoiler that you have?

    HI Bee Jay,

    You have a beautiful car. Can I ask you a question? What did you go with for an air intake system? I'm trying to find something that will work on my 76 L82 sm350. Concerned about hood clearance. I have an Edelbrock RPM intake manofold and Holly carb.

    Man, I don't want to do any of all that. Lawyers? Heck, let's just call ourselves a club and informally elect officers. No dues, no bylaws, no lawyers. KISS. I belong to a very informal car club here locally and we get together about twice a year over barbeque with the wives and we wrench together maybe six times a year. We haven't even elected a leader. We just get together and communicate via email mostly. Nothing formal. But I'm just one vote. We got formal institutional Corvette Clubs to join locally, if they will have us. We can pay dues there. JMHO.

    Bee Jay, Randy, Muddy and Thomas.

    Hey, so I’m gathering all this info on legitimately developing our California Stingray club. How far do we want to go? There is a shit load of initial item’s that need to be addressed before we even can consider ourselves a club or legally own the clubs name. Like IRS issues, Federal tax I.D. number, simple, yet need to be addressed. I’m not trying to be discouraging just looking for some help and in which direction you guys want to take this.
    I’ll be unavailable for the next several days out floating somewhere around the Channel Islands but we need to get a handle on how far we want to go with this. Think about it and please get back with me.
    And yes Don, I’ll be sporting an empty bottle of Rumple Mintz by the time I return to port…well, at least one empty bottle.

    I think I’m going to need a bigger boat…….

    Bee Jay, how far to we want to go with this? Capable we are….but? I don't want to check with the President S.A.C.......

    The How To's of Starting a Club:
    • The following tax forms to apply for Non-Profit Status are needed:
    Publication "557" tax-exempt Status for Your Organization
    Form "SS4" Application for Federal Tax I.D. number. (Required for a club bank account)
    Form "8718" Determination Letter Request
    Form "1024" Application for Recognition of Exemption
    Form "990" and "990EZ" Return of Organization Exempt From Income Tax
    • Information and all of the forms can be obtained from the IRS at . This is a lengthy process and is best if handled by an attorney. Some Staples Office Supply stores carry these Forms. Additional information is available from your states’ Attorney Generals Office.
    • The initial group of elected officials is made up from the original club members.
    • Elected Officials are President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. Some clubs have additional board members. Establish job descriptions for each officer.
