Ramblers of Long Beach
The Ramblers was a car club from Long Beach, California. It was started in 1950, and the charter members and most of the members went to Poly High. A few went to Wilson. Bruce Bartlett was a charter member. Monte Trone was a good friend of Bruce, and a member of the Long Beach Cavaliers. Monte had been a Cavaliers member for a while, and he gave Bruce some good advice and pointers that was very helpful for the newly established club.
In 2019 Bruce Bartlett told Sondre Kvipt of Kustomrama that Dick Farguson at Dick's Body Shop did work on the majority of their club cars; "He did really nice work and the best part for all us high school kids, he was very reasonable. He did a '47 Cad for me just before I graduated."
