The Professional Car Society invites you to membership in this international organization, which is dedicated to the maintenance, restoration, reservation, and display of one of the finest examples of automotive craftsmanship — the professional car.
A professional car is loosely defined as a custom bodied vehicle based on passenger car styling and used in the funeral, rescue or livery services. Such vehicles may be hearses, flower cars, service cars, ambulances, limousines, or
cars which are specially built to combine two or more of these functions, such as combination hearse-ambulances, sedan ambulances, or invalid coaches.
The Society was founded in 1976 to encourage the preservation of such vehicles, many of which had no established classes in multi-marque antique car organizations at that time. The Society’s growth since then has helped to establish the position of the professional car in more and more clubs and shows and has helped to preserve many vehicles for future collectors to enjoy and restore.
The Society publishes a bi-monthly magazine, The Professional Car, which contains industry news, historical articles, club news, advertisements of interest to the collector, miscellaneous features, and lots of photographs. Regular features include Owner’s Pride, a success story of a member’s professional car; The Limo Page, highlighting some aspect of the livery car, past and present; and The Marketplace, containing classified advertising
from all over. Members are encouraged to contribute to the magazine by sending information to the editor. We publish biennially a directory of Society members, their addresses and their professional cars. The directory is not available for commercial use and is for the convenience of the membership only.
In addition to our publications, we hold an international meet every summer. This event, which is always well attended, draws cars from many locations to comprise one of the most unusual cars shows in the antique car hobby. The site of the international meet changes each year and is frequently chosen to include a visit to one of the firms in the professional car manufacturing industry.
The Professional Car Society has members in countries all over the world. It has chapters wherever enough Society members indicate an interest in having a local organization. It is also affiliated with other societies worldwide that cater to some aspect of professional car preservation and history.
Membership in the PCS is on a family basis, if desired sustaining memberships are available. Manufacturers, dealers and others in the professional car industry are encouraged to become sustaining members and to provide news for our magazine and to display current products at our events.
We hope you will accept this invitation to join us and that you will find the Society enjoyable and worthwhile.
