TYRODS CAR CLUB AIMS and OBJECTIVES

The main objective of the Tyrods has been changed.

We are a non profit, un-incorporated social club.

We meet to organize club social outings and events.

We do not organize or operate fund raising events.


                                                                   

 

THE TYRODS HAD IT BEGINNINGS IN THE FALL OF 1963 WHEN A HAND FULL OF GALT C.I. SENIOR STUDENTS DECIDED TO FORM A CLUB FOR OLDER CAR ENTHUSIASTS. THE FIRST BUILDING RENTED WAS ON HIGHWAY 24 JUST SOUTH OF GALT AND HAD ROOM FOR 3 CARS. THEN IN 1966 HALF OF THE GALT KNIFE BUILDING WAS RENTED( PRESENTLY THE GRAND RIVER BREWERY ) THAT WOULD HOUSE 12 VEHICLES. 

OVER THE YEARS CLUB MEMBERS WORKED ON THEIR OVAL RACE TRACK CARS, DRAG RACING CARS, STREET RODS AND MUSCLE CARS AS WELL AS THEIR DAILY DRIVERS.

MEMBERS HAVE COME AND GONE AND PASSED AWAY BUT THAT CORE OF LOVING YOUR RIDE PREVAILED. THE CLUB BUILDING WAS EVENTUALLY SOLD AND THE CLUB REMAINED A SOCIAL CLUB HELD TOGETHER BY A CORE GROUP OF MEMBERS.

IN 2008 THE CORE GROUP CONTACTED ALL FORMER MEMBERS TO ATTEND A 45TH REUNION. THIS RESULTED IN FORMER MEMBERS AND THEIR FRIENDS TO CONTINUE THEIR  PASSION OF OLDER CARS. THUS THE ANNUAL TYRODS FALL CRUISE BEGAN TO FUND RAISE FOR LOCAL CHARITIES OVER 8 YEARS.

THE CLUB NOW MEETS MONTHLY TO ORGANIZE THE MILL RACE CRUISE FOR THE GALT B.I.A. DOWNTOWN ONCE A MONTH FROM MAY THROUGH SEPT. MANY MEMBERS HAVE WON TOP AWARDS AT VARIOUS CAR SHOWS AND CRUISE NIGHTS AS WELL AS BEING FEATURED IN NATIONAL CAR MAGAZINES.

THE CLUB ALSO PLANS MEMBER GATHERINGS AND CRUISES THROUGH OUT THE YEAR.
