April 14, 2018 – This is the six-year anniversary of the death of my dear best friend and USMA President Dave King.
Thanks to my old friends who have called; yes, we do miss Dave in USMA every day. Nothing has changed, we will continue on doing exactly how and what Dave would want.
All my effort will be to carry on in the way things have always been. United Street Machine Assoc. is solid and strong. With help from the greatest dedicated staff of volunteers to all the fantastic car owners USMA will continue to achieve great events. 2019 will be our last season of doing our charity show full schedule. In 2020 we will host a hand full of charity events. Retirement sounds great!
Since Dave's passing I have had the opportunity to take Dave's car around the country to areas where Dave was a local cruiser. With fellow member and friend Tim Hopkinson we have been honored to meet and talk cruisin with many of Dave's friends. The greatest was going to Dayton for the indoor show. We took the Memorial display, asked his favorite son-in-law Jared to bring over his car for display, Dave’s family, daughters Carol and Mindy to come hang out. We even got his favorite pin striper Donnie to bring his cruiser over to join us. It was 4 days of remembering our leader and family.
Since this sharing of Dave's family Tim and I have taken the car to many more events. One thing I will cherish forever is the look on the faces of family when I gave back Dave's Roadster for them to love and cherish. I miss Dave and Linda King very much.
I have added a link to our home page of some pictures to share.
IN LOVING MEMORY OF
UNITED STREET MACHINE ASSOC. PRESIDENT, DAVE J. KING
