This is a big key.

90% of the members join because they're having a problem with a car. It'* the welcoming spirit of everyone and the almost instant mechanical help they get that keeps them here.

It'* the MEMBERS above all else. It may be about the cars, but it'* really the people.

My doors are ALWAYS open for any member. Many westerner'* already know this. This is an extended family for me. I can truly and honestly state that I haven't met a member I didn't like.

Even on those Pittsburgh trips.

I agree that the spirit of this club is totaly different from any other forum. Everybody is helping each other, and everybody is bringing new development / idea on the Bonneville universe, performance or esthetic .

And while we are at it, i want to thank everybody who helped me with my car since i joined the club, you were always there to give me the right advices. And now you all share the lost of my Bonne and its really appreciated.

I think its a mix of the Bonneville enthousiasm and the people here and atmosphere.
Cant believe i was connected everyday to this club since i joined. This is really like a family, even if i lost my car, i will probably cruise in the forum again.

Continuing to share everything i learned here. Things that save me a lot of money sometimes.


Mike

I'm sure I was a major pain when I first joined.

I really enjoyed this club, now it'* up to the point where my mom said I'm obsessed, of course I'm in denial about that.

I joined this club because I had no idea about my car and I wanted to learn now, I know margainallyl more.

I really like how this club is not "unfriendly" to all minorities, including the handicapped (I'm legally handicappe) But I'm fine, just can't hear.

Freaking AWESOME club. Now the next 20 years of my life will be blowing off work to attend meets.

Dont be so hard on yourself. You did not seem to be hampered in any way at NEBF. It was a pleasure to meet you.
