it would be too time intensive to get into looking up the many cool cars that the Shriners have brought to hospitals and parades, but I hope you remember all the cool wheelie cars you've seen the Shriners driving in parades

1952 and the Ainad Shriners were delivering Xmas present to a hospital

Today, 22 Shriners Hospitals for Children are located throughout North America. The hospital system has evolved over 90 years to provide medical care for burn victims, spinal cord injuries, cleft lip and pallet in addition to pediatric and orthopedic medical issues.

Today, Ainad Shriners is the ninth largest temple of 195 Shrine centers throughout the world. With a membership of approximately 4,600, Ainad is the largest of the five Shrine centers in Illinois.


  1. The Shriners do great work and are to complimented, but .. for a hilarious take on the whole Shriner milieu go look up "43rd Annual Convention of the Grand Mystic Royal Order of the Nobles of the Ali Baba Temple of the Shrine." by Ray Stevens.

  2. In my area, the Shriners drive Jeepsters (Toledo shrine), go carts and minibikes. Nothing as fun as these cars.
