About the Club

about_01

The 356 club is the largest regional 356 club in the world – with approximately 1,000 members. While we are Southern California based, the club has attracted members from throughout the US, Canada and countries around the world. Many of our members have joined because of its excellent coverage of Porsche 356 events through its magazine and website. If you are a member, thank you. If you are not a member, please consider becoming one – the magazine alone is worth the cost of membership!

The club’s primary focus is driving and enjoying our cars. We communicate that passion through our magazine and this website. Quarterly, the club publishes its renown magazine. Each edition has articles of interest to the Faithful…

  • Keeping all of our members informed of upcoming activities and recount recent events;
  • Sharing information and interesting stories on the history of the 356 automobile and the people who made it an icon;
  • Restoration, repair and preparation tips; and members sharing what the funny little car has meant in their lives.

The articles are contributed by club members, so if you have an interesting story about your 356 experiences, please send it in.  Contact our Magazine Editor, Hal Thoms, for additional information and submissions.

Each year, the club sponsors many activities for members and friends. Interested in driving events, Touring, Concours, Racing, Restoration, or just plain socializing? We offer it all. The activities are kept up to date in the calendar section of both the magazine and this website, so check often. Also check out the Recent Events section of this site for photos of members and their cars at all recent events.

All of this can’t be done without the magazine advertisers – their support keeps the cost of your membership down and makes much of the club’s activities possible. So when the need arises, please check out the Vendor page and support those who support us!

Finally, the club would be literally stuck by the side of the road without its numerous volunteers and contributors. Thank you to all who work so hard to make this club!

Come join us at our next event!

The 356 club is a non-profit organization that has no affiliation with Porsche AG or Porsche Cars North America.
