The Rakers Car Club was started in 1957 by Port Townsend High School students Vic Olson, Gary Reid, Glen Benton and Jim Seastone. Raker members usually hung out at Joe’s Corral or CUSAKS, both of which were eatery stops along the normal cruising circuit. Club meetings were usually held at the designated local quarter-mile strip out by West Hastings or, on occasion, in a building on Washington Street, the site of the Bishop Victorian Hotel.
The Rakers Car Club disbanded in the late 1960s, when many members had either gone into the military, moved away, married, or started a family. By April 2001, the original members had finished raising their families, retired, or rekindled their passion for cars — and the Rakers Car Club was reborn. Membership is currently approaching 100 with members located in Washington and Idaho.

The Rakers Car Club is offering a $1,000 scholarship
to a student in the study of
Automotive Technology.
