    On behalf of the members and ex-members that feel the current President and certain members of the BOD went rogue - causing harm and damage to the welfare and good operation of the club - you are officially hired to take our club back. You seem to have the passion for the good of the club first and foremost, own a Viper, and have seen first hand what has transpired over the course of the past month and last couple of years.

    Please contact me immediately so that we can finalize the terms of your employment by the Viper Owners Club and put the necessary actions in motion immediately to return this to the best car club in the world, repair the relationship with Chrysler/SRT, and make this the best website for the exchange of everything that is VIPER!

    Best Regards,

    John G.

    Really....on behalf of what members exactly ??

    Who are you and how it is that you think you speak for all these members....current and old ?

    Even though I agree that the current BOD should be scrutinized and held accountable I certainly don't agree that BobPantax should be hired to do this. He has way to many personal opinions and probably know to many people in order to do a good job 'in the best interest of the club'.

    If an outside attorney was hired, he or she would look at this in an unbiased way and most likely do a much better job

    I want outside legal to look at what has been happening in this club, No Members or Friends of Board Members.

    He is kidding. Boy. Some of you are strung so tight it is unbelievable. Besides that, even if he were not kidding, mental health law and state law regarding non profits are not within my field of expertise. I will defer to Viper GTs's knowledge regarding sheriffs;the part of their anatomy he mentions; and the act he suggests. Since the image came to his mind so readily, I assume that he has great experience in such matters. LOL

    Thank you for clearing that up, now lets move on.

    Have to say there are now so many new threads from Unhappy members its a job in itself trying to read them all, and still members questions have not been answered.

    Bob,

    I'm disappointed that you had to engage with your own personal attacks. I'm so sick of reading your biased drivel here, as many others likely feel the same way. Maybe take a 10 yr vacation from the keyboard?

    Thanks,
    Tony

    Subject: Resignation


    To the Board:


    I write to you today to report I am resigning as your President effective immediately. I reflect on this with a with a mixture of great pride in the state of our club, and sorrow that we are all embroiled in controversy.


    We have a sound financial condition again with a sold out raffle car that provided a quarter of a million dollars. A magazine that that has won countless awards, and a membership service level that we all agree is 5 star, and a parts business that will provide supporting revenue for the club.


    Yet today we face countless allegations of various vices in the automotive press. It is said we are at war with Chrysler or that Chrysler is at war with us. It's alleged that somehow having a for profit business owned by a non profit car club is somehow a bad thing. And the leaders of our membership company and o ur for profit are somehow doing something shady. It's alleged our tax returns are wrong.


    None of this is true, but this level of journalism, which really is not journalism but blogging has created this picture, with comments from a very few who have issue with the club. As just one example: It is alleged our tax return is wrong because we do not report any chapters. We don't have chapters. All our regions are incorporated in their own states as separate entities and report their own tax returns.


    We do have some possible restructuring to do to qualify for the membership money Chrysler would provide to the club for new members who buy the Gen V. This is the issue Chrysler was addressing in their recent letter to our directors. They were not dismissing us, they were telling us to change one thing in our structure to qualify for this program. I might add that we have not received any funds in this way for many years.


    Yesterday I had to make some of the most difficult decisions of my life. I removed three Directors and replaced them with more neutral ones. The removals are from both sides of the aisle so to speak. I know these actions will be questioned and criticized. Wait for the facts and the truth to come out. I pledge to you that my only motivation in making these decisions was to leave the Viper Club leadership in the best possible hands to rebuild the leadership in peace.


    I'm taking the same action and removing myself so others who are less polarizing can move ahead while protecting the club's assets. And let me make one point clear, I never said I would resign on Friday. I had decided to resign late Monday and had communicated that to the board. That slipped one day to today on the advice of club counsel so there would be no confusion with the dates executive action was taken.


    Trust your new leaders. I have worked with this Board for five years, four as your Treasurer during the transition from a Dodge supported club to a financially independent one. Give them some time.


    Keep on believing Viper faithful, we will weather this storm as we have others.

    Please don't pretend you have a sense of humor, Bob. I'm thinking you might have earned your #3 spot on the least popular VCA member list, under the rest of the Jalopnik-named bunch. We shall not forget your words.

    If you'd like to test your sense of humor, please feel free to create a poll on who should get voted out of the VCA, yourself or me. I'll honor the results, will you?

    I do not defend those actions and would not. I guess you missed my Mario Puzo comment in a different thread. With Lee's resignation, this soap opera is getting a bit stale. So rather than read reruns, its back to trying to post about the car and related subjects with an occasional Politics 101 post and maybe some science and joke posts. Over and out. Take care.

    Anyone know who has signature authority over the bank account. It should be two signatures as we all know; but who besides Dan can sign checks? Any know that.

    Dan - or whoever, can we see the latest bank statement?

    I think it is more of pretentious demeaning posting rather than attacks. Mr. Bobpantax, please understand that EVERY mother thinks their son is a genius. Remember that, just because a mother said so, doesn't necessarily mean it true..... BUT, when people who despise you tell you that you are smart or a genius, then you will surely know that that you are truly a genius.

    Venom, after all the damage the so called leaders did to the reputation of the vca and killing the relationship with SRT as well as not answering the many questions, we, the paying vca members had and have, a guy named Bob shows up and defends them ...with "wait and see", "give them more time", bla-bla-bla ... what?

    We are not stupid. Although, Bob might think so.

    He deserves more than a virtual slap for sticking with the old regime.
    May be the "new vca" will ban him for life?!

    P.S.: I know Bob in person. Unfortunately, I met him (once).

    I've followed all the back and forth between Bob and others and I would not say Bob is "defending" the "tyrants". I think he is just trying to show people there are two sides to every argument. I can't blame him for that. Really, from what I've read, I think he agrees that there need to be revisions made in the club management. I really don't think he's supporting one side or another, just pointing out that there may be other view points. Of course, I could just be taken in by his smooth prose. :)
