It is a very neat card but I think the dates were added later. The type style of the dates is from a more modern typewriter then the owners name.

$6.25 in 1922 was a good chunk of change for only 6 months! License number and Member signature are also missing so how would the "Arresting Officer" accept this card in lieu of bail?

I loved the style of the old ACSC buildings. The theme was carried out in the branch offices as well as the headquarters.



Even more than the buildings, I loved the ACSC maps. They were wonderfully detailed, much better than filling station maps (What are those?) and AAA maps.


About thirty years ago I was very disappointed when they changed the style of their maps to match AAA, with much less detail. I wrote a letter of complaint, and received a reply from one of their cartographers saying that the new maps were just as good as the old ones. I knew, and he had to know, that he was lying.

When we went camping in Baja California 50 years ago I can remember seeing the old auto club signs.
This was back when the pavement ended not far below Ensenada. I still have some of the Baja auto club maps from that period.

John, maybe you remember Highway 1.
