Meet a Director
Each issue of SVO Enthusiast will highlight a member of the SVOCA, a little about the member and a little about their cars. This time lets meet Gary Alsobrooks member #0005, editor of the SVOCA-ENTHUSIAST and is one of the Founding Five Directors. Gary just topped the hill of the big four-ooh, lives in Hendersonville Tennessee and gets bossed around by wife Lynette and 5 year old son Ryan.
Gary's background in organizing car clubs goes back to 1980 when the Music City Mustang Club was formed as a region of the Mustang Club of America and has served in PFCA, SAAC, and SVOOA positions through the years. Gary brings a lot to the table at SVOCA, insight on running an organization such as this and creativity from stints at advertising agency positions. Earlier this year Gary co-organized the largest gatherings of SVO Mustangs ever at the SVO REUNION 98 held in Nashville Tennessee which led to the organization of the SVOCA.
Purchased in 1995 to serve duty as a daily driver his '84 canyon red SVO now mainly sees autocross competition. The '84 has received a full package of suspension additions from Kenny Brown Performance and is going through a continuous transformation into a better autocross prepared car.
