History is Important

by Ed Taccone
I thank our uncle Laurie while in England for inspiring me to write this article. I found the museum of the London Docklands extremely interesting and historically valuable.

History is important as was the case in celebrating our car club’s tenth year anniversary. Would you not agree it was based historically from inception by the people who were responsible for creating our wonderful car club?

Sounding Knowledgeable

by Paul Dullaert
Naturally we want to be accepted, even admired, by people belonging to groups in which we share an interest. One of the ways we do this is to learn the specific vocabulary used and understood by established members of the group. It doesn’t matter if it’s tennis or horses, they all have their own terms not readily understood by people outside of the group. I don’t play golf so I don’t need to know what a mulligan is. I don’t watch hockey so I hesitate to guess what a five hole might be. But I am interested in British cars so I have learned some of the specific terms used to talk about them.
