History of Cars

A Member In The Making

Despite what most of us would like to believe clubs like ours are mostly comprised of more 'mature' individuals.  Those of us that remember the days of thunder and only a smattering of foreign cars on our streets constitute 60% of our membership.

As your webmaster I was particularly pleased to receive an email from a young man by the name of Connor.  Actually the email came from Conner's tutor.  Connor was working on an assignment regarding the history of automobiles and came across the TCVCC website.  Here's what his tutor had to say:


 I just wanted to take the time to contact you and let you know that a student I'm tutoring, Connor, has been using your page, https://tcvcc.com/links/ for his automobile history project. We came across it while distance learning and since it played such a big role in his project, he insisted we had to reach out to let you know, haha. Thank you so much!! 🙂 

To take our thanks one step further, Connor wanted to suggest another page to you he thought might complement your page! It's https://www.speedwaymotors.com/Info/Automobile-History-Timeline and it's an automobile history timeline. It gave us some great information and sites so he thought it could do the same for other students using your page!

Please let us know what you think if you get a chance! I would love to show Connor over our next Zoom call that his suggestion was added to help others out. He would be so excited and proud to know he's made a positive contribution and inspire him to keep reaching out to help others. 

Thanks again and best wishes,

Speaking for myself I often get the impression that the "younger" generation doesn't have much interest in many of the things that their parents and grandparents grew up around.  An email like this one gives me hope that at least a few of the things that we value may survive us.

I visited the site that Connor, suggested that we visit and it was interesting.  If you have a few minutes you might want to take a look at it and see if you agree.


From all of us at TCVCC to Connor, thank you for writing us and more importantly thank you for your interest in automotive history.  We're hoping that all your effort results in an A+ for you.

Due to COVID we're not having our annual COOL CARS car show this December but we'd like to have you join us next December (2021) so you can get up close and personal with all of our members and their wonderful automobiles.  We'll be updating our website with the show dates once they're selected.

I'd also like to thank Ms. Nelson for handling the mechanics of getting in touch with us.
