Message From the President
Fellow LH Owners and Enthusiasts,
Happy New Year! I’m sure I’m not alone in feeling excited about the hope of a new year ahead. Hopefully you and your families all had safe and happy holidays and are ready to take on the year ahead. It’s bound to be another interesting one for the books!! I’m not a resolution kind of person but I do find great enjoyment from the potential that a new year holds. The cycle of the winter months where I ponder and plan new mods and projects for the cars, the spring where we finally get to go back outside and actually start working on the cars, and the summer of meets and time with friends and cars – it’s what makes it all worth it! I very much look forward to seeing all the potential that 2021 has for all of us!
For the club, it’s a monumental year – 2021 marks the club’s 20th anniversary!!! Yes, that’s right, this club bringing together LH enthusiasts from around the world has been around for 20 years!! That’s 4 times longer than the 300M was even made! Congratulations and thank you for being a part of it!! It’s the active membership that keeps us going, it’s your hard work and dedication to these cars that keeps them on the road, and it’s the wonderful people that you are that makes this family. I am fortunate to have been a part of it for as long as I have and for all that it’s given to me. I hope that this year will allow us to celebrate in true club fashion…you know, with road cones, scepters, the precious, and all of you!
Speaking of cycles, it’s that time of year again! January means we prepare for the transition of the Board of Directors. We’re in the nomination process now and will move to the officer election before the leadership transitions in mid-February. If you’re interested in playing a small role in keeping the club moving from an administrative perspective, please reach out. It’s important to have new and tenured members with a mix of involvement. Not sure what it all means? Reach out to a current BOD member to learn more about how the year goes.
One of my favorite traditions at the turn of the year is the annual Ride of the Year contest. It’s always so fun to look back over the past year to see all the amazing monthly winners from the Ride of the Month contests. Each year it’s such a great group of cars! This year was no different and casting a vote for just one car was equally as difficult. The votes have been tallied and the congratulations goes to Clarence Anthony (StealthM)! This beautiful ride will be the cover photo for the 2022 calendar! As always, thanks to all who voted in the contest – it’s great to see the voice of the membership come through during each of these contests.
We’ll start 2021 off with a great Ride of the Month contest – keep the voting going! The contest will be posted in the coming weeks so keep an eye out and we’ll get next year’s calendar started off right. We plan on running a full year of voting contests like previous years.
I know there are so many of us hoping on all hope that our car events return this year! With so much still unknown, we will plan what we can, and hope we’re able to enjoy it! Our goal is to have three in person events: Indy (May), Carlisle (July), and Ocean City (October) as well as the 2nd annual John Benjamin Memorial Virtual Car Show. I truly look forward to each and every event and hope that we’re able to partake in shenanigans of all sorts once again.
This time of year, is typically slow on the forum and the year has certainly been slower overall than ever in the past. Let’s keep the conversations going! Keep asking questions, keep thinking of new ideas, and keep the conversations moving forward. Thanks too for the interactions with social media. The club makes a great deal of effort to be active on multiple platforms and it’s always fun to interact there. For years, we’ve received many new members from our activity on social media. It’s a great segway to the wealth of knowledge that this club is. Let’s keep up the conversations!!
