Junky Car Club



About
The Junky Car Club is a car club whose members are learning to live with less so we can give more. We're a bunch of happy drivers that are politely rebelling against consumerism by driving junky cars. We encourage our members to use their dough to support social justice causes instead of making fat car payments. Junky Car Club members sponsor kids who live in poverty through Compassion International and help other great organizations. We believe in environmental stewardship and hangin onto things a little longer. Click on the banner below to join!

History
The Junky Car Club was established in the spring of 2006 when the president of our club Mike, decided to sell his fully loaded Infiniti G35 sports car to drive a junky 1993 Toyota Camry. In an act of rebellion against consumerism and the desire to give more to worthy causes, Mike began to enlist his friends and associates to join him in this experiment of driving with less and giving more. The Junky Car Club currently has members from the US, Australia, Singapore, England, and New Zealand.

Yes, this is Mark Batterson, Author of "In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day" sitting on his OLD Ford Focus for the Calendar!

I think our 1998 Montana Van comes real close to fitting us into the "Elite Lemon" Membership category, but our 2005 Ford Focus gets much better gas mileage so it's actually better for the environment then the van.

This club is a fun way to be encouraged and challenged to do a little something for others so I think it's a really cool thing.
