I recently got this great car club plaque and cast gearshifter both with a tiki theme, Just wanted to know if anyone else has seen any other ones as i know there was a few car clubs in the 50's that had tiki style logos and names

I've got a couple of those shift knobs. The plaque is awesome. Looks like the Hawaiian Eye Tiki. Are there any markings on the back?

That's unusual that there's no markings. Most plaques were made by Chicago Metalcraft or Speed Gems. Usually they had a maker's mark, on the back.
