Wheels of Confusion History

new logo hb.png

Wheels of Confusion was  formed in  1972 by 6

guys who had vans and wanted to form a club.  A bit later they merged with Rainy Day Truckers to make a bigger and better club.  Wheels is still going strong today with the original Huntington Beach club plus an Arizona Chapter in Kingman.  We still sponsor several runs a year including Dazed & Confused, this year will be number 17.   We are also doing a poker run in July 2021 and usually host one day runs that include Totally Confused and Mass Confusion.  Wheels members from both Huntington Beach and Arizona were represented at the 48th Van Nationals  in Albert Lea, Minnesota and Tom  Chronister's  Silverado second generation Ford won 2nd in class
