As of this writing, the poll is closed so I can't officially vote. But I do believe the area should have a Smart Car Club. Just need to assemble a varied mix of activities.Okay, let's see if this thread title gets more response. Do we need our own central Texas chapter? Round Rock, Austin, Georgetown, Pflugerville? Well?
Your point is well taken and I agree that a car club is club of cars. People like you and I are über-interested in the hardware, mods, tweaks, 'flash', speed, etc. My wife could care less about those, but is interested in gatherings, tours, etc. So to keep folks attention there must be a balance of car-oriented events and social events. Half-day rallies, wash-and-shine events, monthly meetings, driving events to points of interest, technical discussions by area professionals, local car shows, etc., all have a part to play. As a rule, successful car clubs do not attempt to please everyone all the time, but do attempt to make each event varied and applicable to most people. Even California hot rod clubs have a number of strictly social events on a periodic basis. It’s generally elusive, but once the balance is found, the club will grow.well i have a 'car club' and its for custom show cars and trucks. i would be interested in having everyone join....but i like having people around who have custom cars...i mean some paint or body or wheels or stereo mods would be cool. but i do it for the shows...last show ' heatwave' no one was there. i guess what i'm getting at is that i want custom cars in the club, i'm not to fond of just a social gathering club. to me thats kinda lame. i hope i dont ruffle anyones feathers but if you look at the number of people who look at the postings and just read them but not reply...the numbers are preety high. if there are that many people watching the posts but not posting ...you gota wander what kind of a following your asking for?
LOL - Surprisingly little as I have been on contract in California for the past 13 months. My Smart has a measly 2,200 miles on it and it's about a year old; haven't been home much to work on it, let alone drive it.that could be fun....well 'smart dude' what mods do you have on your smart? i have a ton on mine and would like to see what all you have done to yours?
