About Kingsmen Lincoln
The Kingsmen Car Club was original founded in 1958 in Wahoo, NE. Despite forming in a small community, the Kingsmen formed a big reputation. They were successful car hobbyists as well as prominent community leaders. The Wahoo Kingsmen sponsored youth dances, led Christmas toy drives, assisted with the Red Cross bloodmobile, and contributed to the March of Dimes. The Wahoo Kingsmen even had national attention when they were named Car Craft Magazine 1964 Club of the Year.
Kingsmen of Wahoo was started by young men, mostly aged 18-21. Their mission was to promote the hobby of building/driving classic cars and to make a positive impact on their community. They were successful in both, but eventually club activities were not their only obligations. Many Kingsmen were drafted to fight in Vietnam and the club eventually disbanded in the late 1960’s.
The Kingsmen car club was officially reborn in 2014, now under the name Kingsmen of Lincoln. The mission statement and club ethos emulate that of the original 1958 Kingsmen. We believe in preserving the hobby of collecting, building, and driving pre-1972 Hot Rod and Custom cars/trucks. We also promote our community through non-profit ventures. We have donated our time, labor, and thousands of dollars to local charities such as Habitats for Humanity, Helping Hannah’s Heart Foundation, and Lincoln Food Fort.
Kingsmen of Lincoln is a registered non-profit organization. Our members’ cars have been featured in national magazines and catalogs. Our plaque is proudly displayed at the Speedway car museum. We are part of the Eastern Nebraska, Western Iowa Car Council. We love classic cars and invite you to join us at our next Kingsmen event!
