I never would have thought in a million years that joining a vintage car club would turn into such a lousy experience.

I am not exactly sure why, but the webmaster for the Vintage Chevy Club of America didn't like the posts I made and took it upon himself to censor and ban me from the VCCA Chat web site. The spineless person's name is (name removed), an associate webmaster that is pretty green around the ears...

The club turned out to be like a group of Grandmothers sitting around at a knitting club.

I will never pay another cent to the VCCA as long as I live.

If you're thinking about joining the VCCA, save your money and spend it on parts or another online forum, you will find that you get a lot more for your money that you will with VCCA.

And if you do join the VCCA, remember the VCCA mantra... "knit one, perl two..."

My experience after 16 years has been just the opposite. Yep they are old or at least very set in their ways, prefer you talk about stock rather than rodding, and much like this group prefer not to hear 4 letter words. They have knowledge that is unique due to age, interest and experience and over all I found them to be just as helpful and intersted as the CT group. An experience was over hub caps, my mechanic (me) did not have one set properly and lost it. I asked for some help in getting a hub cap that would match my remaining ones with 90,000 miles behind them, well I got two and for FREE! Cup is half full or half empty depends on where you are.

Like the Stovebolt forum, the VCCA chat forum is dominated by a single individual who claims expertise in every issue that comes up. We all know that there is no way one person can know everything and on the few things I've researched in depth over the decades I've noticed that the "information" he gives out is often wrong.

He does serve a purpose, however, just like the guy on the Stovebolt forum. Some people don't want to do the work to research a subject of interest and find it easier to simply accept whatever an "Expert" says.

I've met the original poster, Alan, and like me he has a home machine shop and knows how to use it. That is in stark contrast to what I experienced in a 40+ year VCCA membership. With rare exceptions they farm out anything more challenging than sanding off rust and washing their vehicles.

People on the Chevytalk forum seem like grease under the nails motorheads.

To each his own, huh?
