Assorted has had many accomplishments over the years. They have had eight members' vehicles featured in major magazines including all of the features in Mini Truckin' you see here. That is a major accomplishment when Assorted has never had more than 12 members. They also have been lucky enough to have had Showfest chosen as show of the year not once, but TWICE!
Their "quality over quantity" approach paid off early. Within a few short years of starting the club, most of the members' rides were featured. In addition, Assorted would like to acknowledge that their members have truly worked miracles by producing a show like Showfest with only eight members. Of course they owe a lot of gratitude to their volunteers and everyone who comes out to support the show. Assorted donates the proceeds from the show to the Mississippi Burn Association. They estimate they've donated between $150,000 and $200,000 to the cause since they began.
It's just the little things that remind Assorted of the good times they've shared. Things like helping a member polish their wheels and get all cleaned up for a show. Or watching the gleam of a sunrise through the back glass of your buddy's truck as the crew is traveling to some far destination for a show or cruise. And of course just throwing back a few brews on someone's patio talking about the latest issue of Mini Truckin'.
Club's Most Important Characteristic
They would say, "Our stubborn ability to keep moving forward as a club."
A Club Story People Wouldn't Know
Sean Burnley recounts: "For me, I still get a laugh thinking back about one of our first trips to Texas Heat Wave. I met at Rob's house to roll out on a Friday afternoon. As with many of our show trips, we didn't leave until around 3 a.m. because when I got there his truck was in 50 pieces. After getting his truck back together we finally got on the road. I remember trying to navigate some pretty poor Louisiana highways full of thumps and bumps. I was watching Rob ahead of me apparently dozing as his Nissan bounced off several of those big concrete divider barriers... sparks in the dead of night flying off his nice shiny billet wheels, and it was dragging before we knew what dragging was! I think he even took out a few orange barrels along the way. I'm pretty sure parts of his truck are still in East Bumble, Louisiana. In fact, looking back on the trip now, I'm surprised we even made it to Austin that year!"
