This version of Frank Livingston's 1949 Chevrolet Fleetline made its public debut at the 1955 National Roadster Show in Oakland.
Frank Livingston's 1949 Chevrolet Fleetline, The Caribbean, as it appeared in 1958. New for the year was the two-tone green scallops by Mel Pinoli.
Frank Livingston's 1949 Chevrolet Fleetline, the Caribbean II, of San Leandro, California. Frank's fourth 1949 Chevrolet was built as a recreation of his first 1949 Chevrolet, the Caribbean. The recreation was restyled by Oz Welch, and the build was completed in 2002.
Erik Lind's 1950 Chevrolet of Livermore, California. Erik's Chevrolet was completed in 2013, the same year as he became a member of the Satan's Angels.
Ted Leventhal's 1950 Chevrolet Convertible of Oakland, California was restyled by Emory Robinson's Custom Shop in 1955. Painted in a green iridescent lacquer by Mel Pinoli's Body and Paint Shop, Ted's Chevrolet is known as the first car ever to receive a Candy paint job.
Fred Crellar's 1940 Chevrolet convertible of Concord, California. The build was started in 1948, and completed around 1951-1952. In 1974 Satans Angels member Ron Brooks of Castro Valley, California bought the car and restyled it further.
Joe Roth's 1959 Chevrolet Impala of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Restyled by Cudahy Auto Body, the build was started in 1960 and completed in 1961. Satan's Angels member Marcus Edell bought the car in 2015.

The Satan's Angels Car Club was formed in 1948. All of the members of the club lived in the Greater East Bay area. Frank Livingston is one of the founding members of the club. In order to become a member, your car had to be either finished or under construction, showing regular progress to get in the club. To be considered as a member, your car had to have at least 3 modifications. Unfinished cars could not fly a plaque. Despite the outlaw image, the club were very strict about not showing behavior that would demean the club or hotrodding in general, while flying the plaque. At the 1957 Oakland Roadster Show the club had 12 cars on display. Many of the cars were award winners and featured in the custom car magazines of the day.[1]


In January 1959, the Satan's Angels held their 1st annual Satan's Angels Custom & Rod D-Elegance Auto Show at the Almeda County Fair Grounds in Pleasanton, California.


In 2000, the club was re-formed, and amongst the new members that were invited to join was Ron Brooks. The club has grown a lot since it was re-formed.[1]
