Today, we suffered our biggest loss ever. Brendan Kennedy passed away from a motor cycle accident. Some may know him as “Qfour5.” He was a very good friend of mine. When I heard the news, I was driving and too chocked up to say much and almost crashed. For those that didn’t know Brendan, he was the most humble guy you could ever meet. He never wanted to be the “star” but just a contributing team player. No matter what, he was always down to help. At our last BBQ in Staten Island NY, he drove down 4 hours from Plymouth MA, took control of the BBQ grill and didn’t ask for a break. That’s a huge responsibility when you are feeding 120 people on one of the sunniest days of the year.
He was always open to opinions and never got offended. Brendan was so respectful and always looked to give credit elseware even when he was the one who put in his money into everything. Continue reading
Yudi “Kingpin” just earned his Liberty plate. Actually, he earned it a while back, we just didn’t have any more in stock. We will update you during the week as to who the new guys with a plate are.
For those who missed it, we only designate plates to members who not only meet the car requirement but also meet the participation requirement. The people are as important as our cars as the members are a reflection of the entire crew.
Yudi stuck around to beat the “time served” challenge. He is very active on the forums, he has a few vouches in Canada and his car has seen a few meets/shows. He has also been very helpful by looking to help others. Thats what we are all about. Congrats Yudi.
Tomorrow, there is a BBQ going down in Queens NY. IDFR is a new shop on Queens Blvd. that is doing all the right things to become a major player in the game. They opened up their shop on a very competitive Queens Blvd strip, thats flooded with automotive shops. This store is huge and they have their warehouse next door. Both the shop and warehouse, along with the street, will be filled with cars. If you are from the area, you know how congressted Queens Blvd can be. Not to worry, they got city permits to park along the street and on the sidewalk.
72-17 Queens Blvd
Liberty is going to support this event because we respect the people of the shop. Mario did a video for us covering Black2 and didn’t look to charge anything. We like aligning ourselves with true supporters. Definitely come check it out. The Luxury Abstract display will be there as well. Continue reading
