In the latter years of the last century…March, 1988 – to be exact…
the Club was originally named “Central South Dakota Street Rods“.
This name was not a favorite of the members and John Noyes proposed
“Pierre Area Cruisers“…this did not please the group,
whereupon Tom Tillman suggested that the name change
should be something that all members approved.
Sean Billet offered up “Pierre Street Machines“, roundly opposed by the group and rejected.
Bob O’Day was next up with “Pierre Auto Club“…that proposal went down in flames.
Lacking a better proposal, the Club stood as “Pierre Area Cruisers” for the time being.
The goal of the Club was to finalize a name as soon as possible
in view of the fact that there could be no legal business transacted
without an official name.
The following names were to be placed on the ballot:
River City Rods and Machines
Dakota Rods and Machines
Club members would approve
as our moniker in April 1988.
