This is just something I thought everyone should know about our club.
On Saturday, October 17th, about 10 of us were “caravan-ing” back from Waco down highway 6. We stopped in Calvert, Texas for a quick break and for some of us to get fuel. For those who don’t know, Calvert is a quiet little town about 100 miles north of Houston. When we pulled back out on the road, we had to drive through some rocks and gravel that littered the entrance to the gas station. About a mile down the road, my TPM light came on, and started flashing at me. Just great!
We ALL pulled back into the next gas station about 7 miles down the road. Now when I say ALL, I mean everyone in the caravan. Everyone jumped out of their cars and we started looking at what was wrong. Well, it appeared that I must have picked up a sharp rock or piece of metal and it cut down my left rear tire. Not a big deal for most, but I was beside myself. I had just picked up new rims and tires no more than 18 hours before! And now, one of the tires was shot! So much for trying to look cool rolling on three shiny new 22’s and a compact spare! Ha!
I just wanted to make sure that everyone knew what kind of people we have in the club. Everyone helped get the tire changed and everyone made sure everything else was OK with my car. The best part of the whole story is this. Johnny Bee and Fred (AWD Charger) knew that I wouldn’t be able to run at speed, so they stayed back and rolled all the way home with me at 50mph. It was a great display of leadership, friendship, and overall care and concern for the members of our club. My sincerest thanks to Johnny Bee and Fred for their help and sacrifice. It is people like this that make SpaceCityLX a phenomenal group to be a part of.
