I agree with you somewhat. I also am a former club member and didn't care for what I experienced. No big problem as I left. Your points about big talk and little results was my biggest issue along withnthe fact that the club was uneducated in event gatherings.<quoted text>
Just like you to miss the point again. Its the B.S that the club blows out about what members do and where members go. I have heard many make comments about something they are building or repairing and I know most haven't the skills to check the oil little on change the oil. Thats what I'm calling you out on as well the joke of showing up in a 2000 anything. Much of your group and the leader of MoM think a 2012 Camaro is presentable at a car event. Ego Ego Ego is the only reason for showing up in something put together by union workers on an assembly line.
There are many people that would participate and travel to our area for MoM but for it being a dealer demo day event. But you guys just hang around together with the same ole same ole warrenty rides blowing the same ole same ole while I and many others have fun seeing real rides built by real common Joes.
Snooty Ego Nose High guys huddled around their window sticker rides is what you represent. Loved hearing so many of you blowing last year about making the cross country journey to the Shades event. Didn't see a single one of you jokers there.
My suggestion to you is to abandond your attempts to open their eyes as they haven't the ability or the desire to be other than what they are. Sunshine only participants with trophy addictions. I for one always wondered about the fact that so many could own and present new cars but didn't own a old ride. Clearly they have the financial abilities. I came to the conclusion that they didn't have the skills to maintain a older ride or the desire to step out of comforts of a new ride. On many occasions I overheard several club members talk about changing a rear gear or transmission. Then later these same guys would getting someone to do the work for them as they were not able to do it. Pure high class bull from many of them and tropy hounds the rest. Less 2 or 3 real car guys.
I am from the old school and joined my first car club in 1963. We never had 1963 cars at any of our events or shows. No not because no one could afford it but because it just was unheard of. Most of the guys in 1963 that owned a new car wasn't the busted knuckle, grease under the finger nails type, they were the rich high class type. Exactly what still exists today in the club and the MOM event. How about getting the word out and start a club for the true auto people. There are a lot of people that attend MOM but accept it like a double dose of Castor Oil. Myself included.
