The fact that joining a classic sports car club can be the beginning of entering a whole new social sphere is a testament to the importance of trying new things in life. The fact that many classic sport car owners are able to forge new friendships by finding people who share their interest can stand as an inspiration to those of us who are afraid to try something new. Often pursuing a new hobby, like classic car repair and restoration, and joining a group of people who share that hobby, like a classic sports car club, can be the beginning of a happier way of life. Those of us who are looking to meet people outside of our social circle could take a lesson from classic sports car club members, as these people provide a great model for how to meet new people around a common interest.
Although many classic sport car owners make fast friends with their fellow car enthusiasts as soon as they join a classic sports car club, not everybody who joins a club of this kind is guaranteed to make friends. Despite that fact that there is no way to find certainty of social success in a classic sports car club, it is still worth trying once. Even if you don't hit it off with the members of your classic sports car club, try to be patient and give things some time. Building friendships takes time, especially if you are a new member of a group of people who have all known each other for months or for years, as the members of a classic sports car club usually have. Try to avoid getting frustrated, and keep an open mind and a friendly smile ready for anybody who seems like they might have potential as a buddy. Most importantly, don't try to force bonding with your comrades before it develops naturally. Appearing desperate to make friends can push people away, so try not to give in to the common trap of trying so hard to seem interesting or approachable or friendly that you keep people from really getting to know what you are like when you are not trying to win them over. Just relax and be yourself without worrying too much about whether you are being impressive, and the members of your classic sports car club will probably come to appreciate you eventually.
However, if you have been waiting for quite a while and have yet to grow closer to any of the other members of your car club, it may be time to move on. Sometimes, finding the right classic sports car club takes a bit of time, so if at first you don't succeed, try out several clubs until you find one that is the right fit for you.
