Default Stylers Car Club Van Nuys, CA

Looking for any info on the Stylers car club out of Van Nuys, CA. The photo shows a 1951 plate along with a id card, sticker, and a patch. I looked online but not seeing much. Thanks, Larry

There's this picture of the treasurer, George Weinstock...

Quote:
Photograph caption dated February 23, 1955 reads "Posing with custom, are, from left, Wally McIntyre, president, Stylers of Van Nuys, and George Weinstock, secretary-treasurer. Sleek showpiece is '48 Olds with unaltered engine but complete customizing, including 'Frenching' (recessing) headlights, 'shaving' (taking ornaments off) hood and 'deck' (trunk), new upholstering and rungs, choming windowsills and painting dash to match general color scheme (Mandorin [sic] red and white).".

Further research shows the name on the card is that of Frederick R Nasser. George Weinstock's wife was matron of honor in his wedding.
