Who we are

The Cadillac & LaSalle Club, Inc. (CLC) is a non-profit membership organization founded in Detroit in 1958 and incorporated in the State of Michigan. Today we are the largest active international organization for Cadillac enthusiasts with numerous regions and chapters that focus on special interest groups such as LaSalles, '41 Cadillacs, Allantés, Broughams, etc. and 16 international affiliate clubs located in Australia, Belgium, Germany, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland and New Zealand. Our membership to date consists of 6,912 families who own more than 18,000 collectible automobiles built by Cadillac; however, ownership is not a requirement for membership. The CLC is not affiliated with the General Motors Corporation but maintains a cooperative relationship with Cadillac nationally and numerous Cadillac dealers locally.

Our purpose

We were initially founded to encourage enthusiasts to maintain, preserve, and restore collectible Cadillacs and LaSalles built from 1902-1942. Now the CLC recognizes all vehicles built by Cadillac. We promote the development, collection, publication and exchange of helpful information pertaining to our cars. We also promote social fellowship for club members.

Scope of Automobile Activity

CLC automobile-specific activities emphasize driveability and authenticity. Judging classifications include touring, original and restored models. Every factory-built engine configuration is applauded, ranging from the single-cylinder to the exotic V-16. Production models and custom-body styles alike are admired, displayed and driven.

Organization

National policy governing events and services are determined by a volunteer, elected Board of Directors. An Executive Committee is empowered to conduct business between meetings of the board. Committees are appointed by the CLC President and serve to accomplish specific assignments. Communications with the Board are accomplished through Regional Vice Presidents and members of the Board appointed to represent their region. Local regions are chartered by the national CLC and at times conduct activities unique to their own area within the parameters of national policy. The CLC membership consists of individuals from all walks of life...mechanics, lawyers, entertainers, spouses, children, CPAs, retirees, Cadillac employees, real estate developers, etc. each enthused about products produced by Cadillac because of their performance, reliability, design and image.
