The 356 Tub Club started in 1988 when a group of 356 Porsche enthusiasts,  wanting to enjoy, maintain or restore their Porsches, met at Zim's Autotechnik in Bedford TX. Club activities include monthly breakfasts, tours, swap meets, tech sessions and shop visits. Weekend tours may be planned in the spring and fall.The club has no formal organization, constitution or bylaws.

Anyone with an interest in Porsche 356s, or for that matter any Porsche engineered vehicle, is welcome .

There are about 80 members, mostly from North East Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas.

The club has no affiliation with the Porsche 356 Registry, the Porsche Club of America (PCA) or the Maverick Region of PCA.
