the summer of 1999, TFM was established at the Second Annual J-Body Bash,
held in Girard, Ohio. Many of the Charter Members had conversed
through internet chat, though few of us had ever met. It was during
the 3 days in August that we spent together that a bond formed, based on
our mutual love for cars (specifically the J-Body) and good times.
To celebrate, Team Forward Motion was created, with a vision of
strengthening communication amongst members, to encourage participation in
events as a group, while still knowing each other on a personal basis.
TFM is first and foremost a club that is based on friendship, strengthened
at J-Body related meets held throughout the year.
Today, TFM is growing strong with new members and
applicants applying every day. All of the
current members share a common respect for cars and each other. When
possible, members attend J-Body and other car related events, and organize
TFM-based gatherings afterward, to celebrate past events and organize
future gatherings. The annual J-Body
Bash is a must-attend for all TFM members, as it not only shows our
dedication to each other, but also to the dedication and commitment we all
display toward our J-Bodies.
TFM is currently
active on several car-related mailing lists, including the J-Body list and
the N-Body list. J-Bodies include the Cavalier, Sunbird and Sunfire.
N-Bodies include the Alero, new Cutlass, Grand AM, Malibu, Cutlass Calais,
Skylark & Achieva.
