The Test of Time Car Club is a non-profit, volunteer based organization that:

5. Actively promotes and supports local charities.
6. Raises funds by means of draws, raffles, entry-fees, and donations to support club expenses.
We are a brand new car club in the Grays Harbor area who's main goal is to generate a fun and family orientated group who has a passion for cars of all shapes and sizes. To start off we will have our first event, Trunk or Treat, at the Shoppes @ Riverside on Saturday, October 26, 2019. Then in 2020 we are planning on having two car shows. The first will be in Matlock the first full weekend in May and the second will be in Shelton in August. Dates and times will follow in the coming months so stay tuned!
We all had a beginning, and if you ask each of the worlds old car lovers how they started, the answers would be similar in many ways. There is something about old cars that captures us and hold us firmly in their grip thoughout life. Our enthusiasm ebbs and flows and depends on spare time, spare cash, work, other interests, and other distractions. Throughout all of it, clubs exist for us to join so we can share our common interests with others. We are all created from the same seeds-----people sharing a common love affair with the automobile.
So many people ask why car enthusiasts spend so much money and time on vehicles, it's for the same reason you go out clubbing or clothes shopping, because we love it. One of the best things is getting introduced into cars, the new places, new friends and making great memories that contribute to our happiness. To be honest 90% of the time our cars are maintained to a better standard than most of the normal vehicles we share the road with, but because we have above average noise exhausts or anything that makes us stand out from a regular car we are deemed dangerous drivers or racers when in fact we are probably some of the safest due to not purposely wanting to damage something we've worked so hard on. Our cars are an extension of ourselves not just a bit of metal we use to get from A to B and that's it. Countless hours under the hood, the smashed knuckles, snapped tools, empty bank accounts and more swearing than anyone could imagine is all worth it when that key goes into the ignition, start your car and go for a ride no matter where your travelling. We're proud to be a car enthusiast regardless of what anyone thinks of ourselves or our car and will continue to have a passion for them till the day we're gone!
