History

On September 26, 1982, three guys discussed the idea of running an ad in the Washington Blade, looking for people interested in old cars. As the informal group looked toward becoming an organized club, the owner of a straight-eight-equipped car suggested the name “Straight Eights.” Originally a term describing the engines with the cylinders in a single row (especially in pre-1950s cars), its irony and double meaning appealed to the group. Soon afterward, eleven people attended the first formal meeting, and the Straight Eights became a reality.
