The 57th Annual Draggins Rod & Custom Car Show was another great success.
A very special thank you goes out to all the participants, volunteers and spectators who help make our show great!
Early in 1957 informal meetings started taking place regarding the forming of a car club in Saskatoon. Discussions revolved around what kind of a car club it should be and to choose a name. In the fall of 1957, after returning from their first car show in Edmonton, Alberta seven car enthusiasts formed a club to further their hobby.
On October 3rd, 1957, the first recorded meeting of the Draggins Car Club was held...
The 5-6-7 Chev Club of Saskatoon hosted their annual event. Many Draggins cars attended the kick off on May 21 2016 at Warman's Legends Complex. All enjoyed burgers & catching up with the car community after another long winter
