The Hunters was a car club from Santa Ana, California. The club was started in 1961, as a community service car club and racing team. Before that it was a Santa Ana High Social Club. Allan Zale was the President for a time; "Our jackets were grey with black lettering. The shirts were white with an altered iron cross that was offered up by Member Mike's grand father who received it in World War one with the American army. The club had an average of 50 plus members. MOst all had cool cars."[2]

The Hunters race cars were a 1934 Ford 5-window coupe, the "7-11" car, a nitro methane fuel dragster, and a Magwinder sidewinder dragster. The 1934 Ford 5-Window red orange coupe had an experimental 477 cubic inch Mickey Thompson motor. The rear engine flathead nitro methane dragster, and the rear engine Magwinder dragster was a chain driven Sidewinder.[2]
