Default DIMWITS car club proposed

So, are you a dimwit, do you hang with dimwits. Have you been accused of being dimwitted.

Do you spend hours in your shop working on your car with harbor freight tools. Do you find yourself asking more questions than you have answers for.

If yes to any of the above you are a candidate for the dimwits cruisers.

You ask, what exactly does it mean?

Doing it myself, for the DIM.

With inferior tools and shop. For the WITS.
OR

With inferior technical skills.


The very first chapter is getting organized in Sacramento now.

Plans could include merit badges for completition of certain tasks, or percentage points .

You could be quarter dimwit, half or full blown dimwit.


My question here is, what is the likely hood of something like this actually being a reality.

What else could dimwits mean as an acronym.

How many would wear a shirt proudly claiming to be a dimwit. Of course the wife would wear a shirt saying she is with the dimwit.

A loose knit club that the only purpose is to have fun with our cars.

Of course to put ourselves through the pain of building a car you are a bonafide member wether you admit it or not.

Exactly you Don,

Our first breakfast is first sun of Nov at perkos on Bradshaw.

We expect you there, and expect you to expect you to be the official leader of the trifive owners and get the word out.

I want your car at the club display at next Autorama.

I've been called a dimwit and other things over the years. Am I pre qualified, or do I need a resume/application? Mike

Hey, we allow long distance members. We just charge them double dues.

You will have to pay double zero, instead of just zero.

Ray, You need to be careful, everyone has their own story.

DIM is me.. On a sailors salary I have no choice b ut to do it myself. Why? Because I made a commitment to three homeless children by adopting them. My money is raising them and my two biological children first, wrenching on my unessesary toy second!

Wit is me, My Harbor Freight welder worked overtime and my tools I could never buy were inherited when my stepfather passed away of cancer in 2006. He taught me mechanics as a teen but never how to weld or do body work!! That has all been self taught!

I traded a Japanese motorcycle for the car after returning from Afghanistan for the third time and feeling like I needed to Americanize myself.

So ths DIMWIT"S jalopy is a tribute to my dedication to family and America

It has only cost me a Japanese Bike and $3500.... With that you and up with a Family Friendly Rat that is a 55,57,58,69,74 Automobile that I LOVE!!

I guess I'll start the VA Charter, No nice cars allowed now!
