I really don't see a big deal here at all. Join if you want too, and don't if it's not in your budget or just don't see the benefit. I totally get it, and just because a guy or gal doesn't join really doesn't mean anything to me. It's all good, enjoy your weekend and honor those that have given their lives for us this weekend.
Might get bombarded by enthusiasts on this one but, I shouldnt have to as I am a member and can voice my opinion as I have payed my way in to do so...
I've noticed alot of people on here with enthusiast titles and own Vipers. Some even have more than one.
Why are you people not joining the club? It is spelled YOUSE PEOPLE from my part of the country.That being said,I think it all started when a certain woman bit an apple many many many years ago! I could be wrong but that is my thoughts on that. The dynamics all changed from that day for sure!!
I also noticed that the VCA members only forum has less chatt and threads there than the open forums to all (including enthusiasts). The form now should be the members only section and there should be a section that titles itself for enthusiasts only. Not memebers only.
IMO, I think the VCA should only allow non members to read threads but not be able to post or respond to them.
If you want to put your .02 cents in then you should have to put your money where your mouth is no ?!!
If this is a club site, should you not have to pay to play ? Sounds like the casino concept ??
How could a person who has owned a Viper for 19 years possibly argue with that logic?Thats fine...but, that still does not justy why they should be allowed to join in on our members privilages. If they love this forum so much and they love to chatt up Viper style, then they should have to pay for it like we do.
Support your VCA members and Car by "donating " the money more than expecting it to make you money back. That is not what joining a club is about, Its about being part of a brotherhood. Outsiders need not apply thanks

.....Yet, here I am, again a younger tech-savvy individual that tracks his Viper regularly, willing to share information, and I am pushed away because I have no interest in becoming a VCA member.
There are a few reasons i see people not wanting to join as a new Viper owner, but joining has a lot more benefits than not being a member. A membership can pay for itself with one purchase from a VCA vendor or event that is VCA sponsored.
reasons i see for not joining(again just my opinion):
1. Too far removed from local events
2. New to VCA and first want to view the site
3. Bad experieince with a member, thread or vendor
4. Just not a club person
5. Enjoy the perks of non-membership
I however encourage membership it makes our organization stronger, financially sound and well rounded.
Arrogance at it's finest.
