Rules


Although some of our rules may seem extreme, the club has ran well in the past with our basic rules. We are very flexible on some rules, please check with the Founding President if anyone has questions. We will continue to change things around as we adjust to cruising in the 21st Century. Even if you are not a member please read through our rules and you’ll have a better understanding of us and our dedication to the lifestyle.

Please note 13’s and 14’s are the rims of choice on cars and 15’s on trucks. We will allow some vehicles on large wire wheels at our own discretion. The only exception to the wire wheel rule is the use of deep dish Supreme wheels with white wall tires on vehicles 1979 and older.

Vehicles voted in club by chapter enrolling in. Majority wins.

4. We encourage our members to dabble in all aspects of lowriding. We encourage anything from a clean antique with aircraft hydraulics to radical hoppers. The typical car in out club is a clean street car.


Section II – Members

1. Membership is broken in several types of membership:

 

Full Members – This group includes:
  • Founding PresidentThe founder has final say in club direction and issues. The Founder keeps membership records and works closely with the web master.
  • Chapter President Chapter Presidents vote in new chapters and report to the Founding President. Chapter Presidents make sure that the Founder is up to par on all club matters such as new members, pictures or other important club records. Chapter Presidents organize and plan shows and events for their own chapter. This includes planning a show schedule for the season, coming up with meeting places and times for shows and informing members of the club activities. Other duties may include organizing fundraiser events/charities, thanking other clubs for shows, events, and many other behind the scenes activities that put the club in a good light.
  • Chapter Vice President Includes the Chapter’s President duties only in time of extended absence or sickness of the Chapter President. ONLY in time of extended absence or sickness of the Chapter President, a majority vote will be taken by chapter members to give the V.P. limited temporary power of Chapter President. Constant duties of the Vice President include checking on fellow chapter members and acting as a role model for other fellow members.
  • Prospects A new member with a vehicle that meets club requirements. Prospects are expected to attend club meeting and shows. A Prospect will become a Regular Member after a 6 month probationary period is over and a review is conducted of the Prospect. The probationary period may be shortened or lengthened by the Chapter President. A Prospect’s car will not be included on the site until the probationary period is completed.
  • Regular Members A member with a vehicle that meets club requirements. Regular members are expected to attend club meeting and shows. Members are encouraged to introduce interested non members to the club. A regular member is expected to purchase a plaque.
  • Floating Members A Floating Member is almost the same thing as a Regular Member but they may be excused from more meetings and shows. This type of membership is available only for members who move frequently or find it difficult to attend most chapter functions. A Floating Member is considered a member of a close chapter and they report to the closest Chapter President as would any other member of the chapter.

Partial Members – This group includes:

  • Inactive Members – A Inactive Member is any member except a prospect who has not attended club functions for at least two years but plans to return to the club in the future. The member must be on good terms with the club and the Chapter President will make the determination on the members status.
  • Honorary Members – See Section II Rule 10 below.

2. ALL members must make it to car club cruise meetings. Family, work , and other personal issues are always taken into account. Make sure the president is informed ahead of time.

3. All members are expected to buy a plaque within a REASONABLE amount of time. The Founding President decides what a reasonable amount of time is. Our new plaques are reasonably priced.

4. All enrolled members are REQUIRED to wear their Eternal Rollerz T-shirt at all car club functions. Some shows such as fund raiser shows or at non competitive shows your Chapter President may ask that the members dress in casual clothing. A car club function is something like a car show or other car related event involving other club members and cars. If there is confusion on what is considered a “Official” club function please ask your chapter president or vice president. Your shirts should not be worn at any other times. A club shirt is for club members or significant others of club members in our club, we have support gear for nonmembers. It is OK to wear support gear and other secondary club clothing in non club related functions.

5. The plaque and club T-shirt are the only expense. There are NO FEES or DUES in Eternal Rollerz C.C. We want you to invest your money in improving your car. This is supposed to be fun so why ruin it with dues? There are no start up fees and no monthly dues in our club. Because we have no dues we do ask that you give the club the best commitment you possibly can.

6. Members will help out recruiting new members and chapters for our club on the Internet and in the real world. This doesn’t mean try to recruit anybody and everybody. We want dedicated active new members with positive attitudes who will add to our club.

7. Members will show citizens, police, and other clubs respect where it is due. “The Golden Rule” is a fundamental moral principle which simply means “treat others as you would like to be treated.”

8. All members will keep things LEGAL! No illicit drugs, illegal weapons or anything that would bring the club a bad name in the community. Remember that you are a positive role model for younger generations that may someday build their own lowriders. We don’t want to add to the bad stereotype or image given to the lowriding hobby.

9. All members have knowledge and skills to share with fellow members. It helps keep things cheaper and improve the speed of our automotive projects. For example, trading a paint job for a hydraulics install.

10. This is a lowrider car club but we are more about the people in it. Any person who goes ABOVE and BEYOND expectations to help out full members and the chapter may be given HONORARY membership status. This option is available to anyone who has proven their dedication to the club with or without a lowrider. This is decided by the chapter president of the possible honorary member.

11. Eternal Rollerz DOES NOT allow dual memberships in any other independent type of car clubs. However non traditional lowrider vehicles may be enrolled in OUR OWN brother clubs that we will name in the future. Wearing another car club’s clothing is not permitted.

12. Car club members are expected to keep ALL club matters that are introduced at meetings private. Discussion of any parts or issues of a meeting to nonmembers or other clubs will result in immediate removal from the club no questions asked.

13. Club members are responsible for informing the chapter president ahead of time of shows or events they plan on attending on their own.

14. Members are expected to provide event coverage for the site when attending shows or events on their own.

In this time the new chapter is expected to make continued improvements on their vehicles, show signs of activity and keep in contact with other Chapters.

2. The new interested Chapter must have three members before a vote will be taken for that Chapter. This will not apply to already voted in Chapters.

3. Prospects are voted into a existing chapter by the other members of the chapter they are looking to join. Majority vote rules.


Section V – Car Shows

1. Members must report what shows they will be unable to attend to their Chapter President. Please give some notice if you are unable to attend planned events.

6. Chairs, coolers, strollers and other eyesores will be kept behind the club vehicles at car shows. These eyesores take away from the visual appeal of our cars at car shows.

7. All Members are expected to park as a group when possible at car shows.
