The Short History of the VW Club of Rochester: Profile of John Cole, President


John Cole, who's newsletters I have, became a member in 1959. He went on to became activities chairman, then, in 1960, vice president. Eventually, in 1962, he would become president of the club.

On the one year anniversary, there was a write up on John. Here is the write up:

John Cole has been a VW Club member for a year. 


His main purpose in life these days seems to be in discovering how to get more members to rally. He conceived the idea of making trophies at home in his spare time. This idea of more trophies, and a point system, he hopes, will bring out more members to rally.


Before his interest in trophy making took over, John took great pride in refinishing furniture, wallpapering, and occasionally even wiping the dishes for his wife.


Due to the fact that has has a wife, two children, a dog, and a rather large unpaid balance on his mortgage, he reports each morning to Alliance Tool and Die where he works as a toolmaker.


The VW he drives is his second new one. Although this one seems to have a few bugs the other one didn't have, his enthusiasm for the mighty little bug is unshakable. In about six months he will probably order his third.

Again - I am looking for any more information about this (and any) clubs. Please feel free to drop me an email if you have any interesting details.
