So this happened

Two weeks ago, Friday the 7th to be exact, I get a call from an old car club member to meet him at a car meet that night in Middletown NY.

Tangent: From about 2008 to 2010 I ran a decently sized car club which ended up dying out in late 2010. I stayed pretty close with my friend who I made it with and a couple of other people, but nothing really car club wise.

Back on track: So when I heard from my friend I was excited and called the other friend who I used to run the club with to go. I figured it would be like old times. We all meet up and laugh and catch up. Have a really great night and break up and go home.

I wake up the next morning and found out on the way home he had crashed on his bike and passed on the scene. He was a really great all around person and will be missed dearly and at only 22 years old it really is a tragedy.

So, after discussion with my friend and my friend who had passed finace we have decided to revamp the car club in his honor. Last night was the first night, but we had a really small turn out because I really don't know too many people in the car world anymore. We will be having weekly, organized, meets and cruises so if any of you are interested in joining up on any of the meets or cruises "Like" the club on facebook for all of the info. Its going to be a really good time. Oh, and before I forget, we are in the tri-state area!

Link to club:
https://www.facebook.com/L3CarClub

FYI:
We are not a bunch of kids who meet up and race down the highway. I really don't allow any bullsh!t in my car club. Its usually meets that have a short, spirited, but nothing too crazy cruise leading up to dinner and a photoshoot. Its a good way to make new friends and get a family like experience.

Sorry to hear that - it really takes you back thinking how quickly life can end for some of us eh?

Hope this takes off for you!

Condolences to family and friends.

We had a similar situation where a group of friends went on breakfast runs and lost a member due to a motorcycle accident.

We all met up on the next Sunday and did a run for him. Best way to remember a fellow petrol head. Good luck with your club

Thanks a lot! The past two weeks have been working well. Still a small group, but getting bigger with every meet!
