It got really big and spread thoughout Nor-Cal and the Bay Area during the 90's. Believe it or not, it was myself, my ex-girlfriend, and a friend named Mike Baer who started the whole thing right here in good ol' Yuba Sutter. We began as a small club called "Kustom Kreations", but soon decided to change to "Club-Vee-Dub" in an effort to separate ourselves from such a generic moniker that was always being associated with the mini-truck scene.

By the time it grew to hundreds of members throughout the North State, we didn't have anything to do with it anymore--- it was being run by another group of fellas, led by a guy named Sherrife something-or-other. Just a couple years ago I was walking through the car show area at Bug-O and I'll be damned if I didn't see a rear window still painted with the original "Club-Vee-Dub" logo that my ex designed some 15 years prior sitting at her mom's kitchen table. Kinda neat, actually-- my 68 Bug was the 2nd window ever to showcase that logo back in 1991, and here it was on a car at Bug-O about 15 years later. I tried to find the owner of the car but had no luck.

Ok then, how bout "Tiny Toyz"? Anyone ever heard of them? Probably not unless you're from the Yuba/Sutter area or happened to notice a window logo at a NorCal show-- they were one of the first and biggest area clubs in the late 80's / early 90's. Club-Vee-Dub put em out of business. ;)
