Message From the President
Fellow LH Owners and Enthusiasts,
There’s so much of me that doesn’t believe it’s July! This year is simply flying. There’s always such excitement that comes with this month for the club as it’s our largest event and I always look forward to this time to see members who attend – we have so much fun!
This July is a bit bittersweet for me. I’ll be road tripping north to IL to sell the black M to a former club member for his son. I’m excited for it to live on with a new driver and relieved to be down to four cars to keep up but it’s a bit sad to say goodbye to it. It’s been mine for the last seven years and has been a part of so many wonderful memories. Delivered by club members to my wedding when it was purchased, it twinning with a fellow member’s car with custom dipped cladding and wheels, The miles of adventures, it being Remi’s M during Carlisle’s he’s attended from France, and the number of times I’ve been under the hood with fellow members to fix, upgrade, bust a finger, and laugh! It’s been a great chapter of my automotive story and such a fun adventure. I look forward to it bringing as much joy to its next owner and wish Logan all the best with it!
Before I continue about July – what a show!! Many thanks to all who participated in the 3rd Annual John Benjamin Memorial Virtual Car Show this year. It’s so wonderful to showcase the membership’s cars and honor our dear friend in this way. Thank you to all who voted and congratulations to the category winners! Awards will be distributed at Carlisle to winners who are present and mailed to those who are not following the event. We will continue to hold this event next year.
July means one thing in this club – CARLISLE!!! It’s always so exciting to prep for the weekend. In our house, we talk about it much of the year with the planning that goes into it – hotel contract, restaurant reservation, showfield setup, t-shirts, etc. As these days tick by, the piles to take with us grow and the car projects shrink.
Be sure to keep your eye on the meet threads. As we’re in the final planning days, post what you’re up to, your travel plans, and take some pictures to post to Fotki. Don’t forget your stickers and letters to pick up your goodie bags! BYO beverages and showfield food and plan to join the group for our club dinner Saturday night. Have parts to sell – list them now for Carlisle delivery – it’s a win-win for everyone!
ROM for the next few months will be determined by the showfield winners at Carlisle and our voting will return later this fall. So, get those pictures taken and reach out about highlighting your ride!
Speaking of the fall, our new fall meet will be back in Myrtle Beach this year. Check it out and plan to join us for this new event. What a way to wrap up the summer with a nice fall trip to the beach! No doubt we’ll have a great time…even if it’s freezing and pouring – but we got that out of the way last year so hopefully much nicer this year.
