Michelle joined the club in 2015 after purchasing a 2008 Mustang GT. She was ready to go out and have some fun, after owning a 2006 Dodge Daytona Charger that barely saw sunlight. After going to a few MoM meets and cruising with NERR on a multi state tour, she decided she needed a new ride if she was going to spend that much time in the seat. In May 2016 she purchased a ‘16 GT and is having fun making it her own. She continues to run with NERR, helping to raise funds for cancer research. When Michelle isn’t cruising in Smoke, she is educating and empowering women, teaching women’s only self-defense classes and selling personal protection products.

Marty is the clubs founder & 2 term Past President of the club from Sept 2013 until December of 2017 and now sits on the clubs Board. He had a vision of a highly respectable car club where all members are treated equally. Of great importance to him was setting up a board of directors and to insure all club business is done as a democratic process.  Another priority to him is charitable support.  As such, part of the club’s rules is for 10% of the annual dues to be donated to worthy member supported charities. He also set it so all active military would be free after the first year.  Marty has also taken on the role as Mustang Club of Americas Regional Representative for Mustangs of Massachusetts.
