Background: "I went to meeting in 1999 and have been involved ever since," says Chris Martin, president of the Straight Eights, the local chapter of the national LCC. Martin, an avid car enthusiast since his teens, says the combination of great people and great cars has kept him involved with the group over the years. And there are some practical benefits in addition to finding friends with a common interest: "You can also network to find mechanics and parts."
