With close to 7,000 members from around the world, the Cadillac and LaSalle Club, or CLC, is the world’s largest international club for Cadillac enthusiasts. Its members collectively own over 18,000 collectible cars built by Cadillac, but ownership is not a membership requirement.
The CLC was founded in 1958 in Detroit, Michigan, and it is presently headquartered in Columbus, Ohio. Initially, it was dedicated to the preservation, maintenance, restoration, and appreciation of collectible Cadillac and LaSalle automobiles built between 1902 and 1942, but now, it recognizes all Cadillac vehicles. It has numerous regional clubs and chapters around the world, including 16 affiliate clubs in the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Sweden, Australia, and New Zealand, as well as chapters for special interest groups such as 1941 Cadillacs, LaSalles, Broughams, and Allantes.
The Cadillac and LaSalle Club organizes activities and provides valuable services for enthusiasts of all kinds of Cadillac, ranging from models with single cylinder engines to V16 engines. Some of the events that members can participate in include car shows, driving tours, cruises, regional meetings, and others. The club also has a number of publications that provide interesting and helpful information about Cadillac vehicles.
