It has been an honor and a pleasure to serve the Board as a Director and Officer of the Club. After retiring in 2004 after 35 years spent owning and operating various new car dealerships, including Toyota, Chrysler/Plymouth, Nissan, Hyundai, Volkswagen, Pontiac, and BMW my being the Club Treasurer allows me to continue to utilize and contribute many of the skills I've learned throughout my career.
I've been collecting and restoring special interest cars since 1976 and had wanted a 300SL Gullwing ever since seeing my first one in Boston in 1966, vowing at the time to someday own one. That opportunity came in 2001, 3 years after I'd joined the Club as an Associate member. I've driven our Gullwing to the convention in Newport and Saratoga Springs and New Orleans, and drove our recently acquired 300SL Roadster 3,650 miles from Maine to Pasadena for the 50th Anniversary Gullwing Convention in 2018.
Serving on the Board and as an Officer has allowed me to 'give back' to the Club that has given so much to my wife Gina and I through the years and we are most grateful for all of the wonderful times we've had and the cherished friends we've made.
