Crosley Automobile Club Inc.

1088 Welch Road S.E.
Palm Bay, Florida. 32909



Crosley Automobile Club was founded in 1969 and has around 900 members world wide.

The Crosley club helps bring together collectors of Crosley cars and other products of Powel Crosley. The club publishes 4 newsletters per year, the Crosley Quarterly and a roster of members every other year (new members get most recent roster).

The club sponsors a National meet the second Saturday in July at the Fulton County Fair grounds in Wauseon, Ohio (old Exit 3) Exit 34 on the Ohio Turnpike. The show is now 3 days and officially starts on Thursday, with many showing up on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Crosley Motors Incorporated had its main office and engineering facility in Cincinnati Ohio, with assembly plants in Richmond Indiana (1939-1942) and Marion Indiana (1946-1952).

The Crosley automobile was the brain child of Powel Crosley, who had already made his fortune as a radio and appliance manufacturer, owner of WLW the "Nation's Station" and the Cincinnati Reds baseball team.

Crosley of the Month


Crosley Automobile Club has come a long ways in 50 years. Founded in 1969 by John Aibel and a simple letter to the editor of Roas & Track asking if anyone knew of the location of Le Mans Crosley and from the responses a club was formed. The first meet in NJ in 1970 had 2 cars, 4 cars at 1972 meet in Maumee Ohio and the above turn out at our first year in Wauseon in 1973 14 cars. 2019 the 50th year of CAC should have the largest turn out ever, well over 100 cars are expected. Don't miss it.

Cars and owners from left to right are: 1 - Al Holsopple 51 Station Wagon, 2 - Deane Sherman 48 Sedan, 3 - Jim Bollman 52 Super Sport, 4 - John Holsopple 52 FOR,  5 - Jim Welter 51 Sedan, 6 - Glen Oches 50 Hot Shot, 7 - Al Holsopple 52 FOR, 8 - Dave Stamper 50 Hot Shot, 9 - Bernard Bahle 51 Super Sedan, 10 - Jim Batsford 49 Station Wagon, 11 - Bill Exline 51 Super Sport, 12 - Patty Stamper 50 Station Wagon, 13 - Al Holsopple, 51 FOR, 14 - John Holsopple 61 Crofton

The club is primarily for the support of Crosley vehicle owners, but welcomes all that are interested in the products of Powel Crosley. The club also welcomes owners of the various vehicles that used the Crosley engine such as the Crofton, Bandini, Devin, Panda, Sabre, Skorpion, etc. Custom vehicles using any part of the Crosley are also welcome. A special class for non-automotive Crosley products such as radios and appliances made by Crosley is part of our National show and the occasional articles in the Quarterly.
