    Don't have a hobby...

    Working out for me (as I am sure for most on here it is as well) is not a hobby but a lifestyle, as such I don't really have a fun hobby. I once joined a pool league and that was fun but I found myself drinking at every meet and drinking is not my thing so I quit.

    Anyway this past Saturday I went to my boys Dennis (the one who was let out of prison) gender reveal party at orchard beach and while I was there, there was a car club. They liked my car and asked me if I wanted to join their club which I did.

    They have 3 locations, NY, NJ and Boston and this weekend I am meeting up with them in NJ for my first meet. I have to have at least 3 meets then they will give me their decal. They featured my car yesterday on their IG Page and its getting a lot of likes up to 587 and counting.

    I am hoping this will be a fun hobby for me as honestly I am bored out of my mind...

    Here is a screenshot of the pic they used on their site.

    Awesome, Johnny. That is a great pic. Sounds like a good group of people. I would enjoy that, too.
    Helping one person may not change the world, but it could change the world for one person.

    Car clubs are fun, and modifying a stock car is even more addictive.
    You have been warned.
    sums it up a thread will start off promising and then turn into name calling..
    The easiest way to tell when an argument has no merit is when the protagonist mixes in some personal insults.

    I used to be in one, here are a few examples:
    1. meet ups at bars restaurants and parks
    2. phone calls with people that you get along with best, talking all things cars
    3. National meet ups for things like the 2020 corvette club of America(just a hypothetical name)

    A lot of boring small talk.

    I used to be quite active in a car club and now I go to only a single meet each year and usually don't last much longer than an hour or so.

    I am assuming it will be canceled this year anyway.

    Depends on the group and how cliquey they are, a few are pretty decent but other ones you show up & no matter how hard you may try they pretty much shun you because you are not in their little circle. Have had a decent time with some of the motorcycle clubs I have been involved with but the car ones have been meh.

    I belong to a Mustang and Camaro club.

    Lots of weekend cruises, some fund raisers, poker runs, coffee gatherings, car shows, etc.

    Lots of clubs like you to attend and work their events as part of their membership.

    Clubs tend to gather and park together at car shows, flying their club banners.

    Most true clubs have monthly meetings, with a Defined leadership structure (president, treasurer, etc).

    The corvette club in my area is pretty active. They do not however like modded cars. Very particular about keeping them stock.
    If you poke a bear in the eye, expect a bear like response.

    Same here, but everything comes in time, never too late. If I had it my way I would have purchased one a long time ago.

    Yeah I can see that happening I guess I will see how/where I fit it, people tend to get along with me very easily.

    Yeah so far I met (via the internet) the president, vice president and an admin they all seem pretty kool.

    Probably get negged but honestly the late 3rd Gens for all the GM F Body models is my favorite look. It's like the designers watched a lot of Magnum PI and melded their design with Ferrari. They're workhorses also, run on conventional oil, hard to kill and somewhat easy to fix.

    Agreed, I want to see some creativity. Then again, I'm the type that could never lease, because I want to personalize all of my vehicles, and I love modding/tinkering.
    I hadn't even left the dealership after buying the Caddy and was ordering parts for it. Owned it a month and have added a splitter, rear spoiler, clear marker lights, wheel spacers, custom floor and trunk mats, etc. Have drilled rotors coming on Tuesday to compliment the Brembo brakes as well. I never leave anything stock, not in my DNA to do so.

    When I bought my first Charger I told her I wanted a Borla exhaust for it. She said "Oh do you want it quieter?"

    And when I got my SRT 392 and the day I got it home I started pulling off all the badges and **** off the trunk lid and she was freaking out. "you just bought a $63k car and you're tearing it up?" LOL.

    By the time I got the Vette and swapping out parts she was just like "oh, that's nice dear."

    My wife has a hard time understanding the appeal of loud cars, but she loves loud motorcycles. So I've been slowly working to get her to mesh the two concepts to understand it. Its been especially interesting trying to bring her around to the idea of a loud Mercedes, because she grew up with her grandparents having an S-Class and I want the AMG GT.

    Definitely not for me either. OTOH, I don’t care for overdone, restomodded classics much either.

    Survivors cars are my favorites.

    Around here, the youngsters do have clubs. They show up to participant voted car shows, and take most of the trophies voting for each other’s pos cars.

    Other car clubs do it too, not just the kids. Only difference, most of the other clubs have cars they didn’t just drive over after their shift at McDonalds.

    My wife has drag pipes on her Harley & I reworked the baffles in my R1 as well as swapped the exhaust on the Mustang but I cannot bring myself to mod the Caddy exhaust because my brain is telling me it's a luxury car and shouldn't sound like a frat boys Honda.
