Message From the President
Fellow LH Owners and Enthusiasts,
Even with some oppressively hot days here in New England, we’re starting to get some leaves dropping in the driveway. With the club’s fantasy football draft over and football starting tonight, there’s only one meaning of this all – summer is wrapping up! While there’s still hopefully a number of weeks left of nice weather, it’s time to start thinking about winter prep for our rides – including your list of winter projects!
In less than a month, a group of us will officially close out summer at the Endless Summer Cruisin’ meet in Ocean City, Maryland. While It’s always a small turnout but we’re excited to grow a bit this year with some great additions! It’s always a great weekend spent ocean side with great food and great friends. We’ll drive on the boardwalk for the parade, provide a bit of modern to the the inlet, eat lots of fries and ice cream, and share many laughs! Stay tuned for our weekend happenings!
As we look to the last quarter of the 25th anniversary year for the LH platform, remember we have club gear still available. Check out the threads for the key chains, coffee cups, pint glasses, and showfield plates. Don’t miss out on these limited edition, one time only items! We are not making a habit of ordering merchandise without pre-orders so be sure to get yours while it’s available.
We have four more Ride of the Month contests left this year. Want to be a part of it for a chance to be in the 2019 club calendar? Reach out and send pictures! The contest structure will likely change for next year so if you’ve wanted to be a part of it, be sure to put your name in for the existing contest! There will be a call for 2018 winners to send in their pictures soon and the 2019 calendar will be created and made ready for sale in December – add it to your holiday wish list!
While being a huge proponent of social media, I think it’s important to recognize its downfalls. Unfortunately, we’ve recently seen some misinformation posted regarding car care and repairs. I can’t stress enough the value of the club membership – all information posted on our site is thoroughly vetted by other members. Our Knowledgebase is large and contains detailed how-tos for many projects. With detailed pictures and support from members in real time as they reply to your posts, you’re going to get the best information here on our site! Countless members have shared stories about their membership fee saving them hundreds of dollars in repairs. Don’t just take what’s on social media and start tearing into your car – take some time to gather the most accurate information on the forum!
It isn’t a secret that these cars are getting old. It’s getting harder and harder to maintain them to the conditions we hope to. However, it’s so great to see the posts requesting parts, seeking a replacement and seeing club members offer up their spares. Replacement parts are hard for us! There are few OEM options and after market are not always the best of quality. Getting something used is sometimes the only option and it takes a wide network of individuals to keep the parts available to our membership. As members make trips to salvage yards, part out their old rides, and go through their own inventory, collectively we’re keeping these cars together and on the road!! It’s great to see the support that’s offered here and I thank each of you for your contributions to keeping our LHs driving!
