About the Madison Avenue Sports Car Driving and Chowder Society:
Under Director, McKeel Hagerty, once a month in the famous New York restaurant – Sardi’s on West 44th Street – there is a cheerful gathering of people with one main interest in common – sports cars and automotive competition.
As established by the founders, Art Peck and King Moore, the Club is based on three principles:

We have accomplished nothing.
We ain’t mad at nobody.
