“Hurricane Motorsports may have been silent for a while, but owners like you kept the legend alive by building, driving, and raving about this car which has now become a major part of our lives,” begins the letter which went to approximately 100 current Hurricane 427 Roadster owners this week. It’s safe to say most have already heard the news that the manufacturer of their beloved cars is up and running again under the direction of new parent company Scranton Manufacturing, meaning the gifts were simply a symbol of appreciation. Inside the customlabeled package, owners received a signed letter from Mike McLaughlin and Steve Sinnard of the new Hurricane Motorsports, an embroidered Hurricane baseball cap, and an embossed Hurricane logo keychain.
“This is our way of telling owners we appreciate everything they’ve done to keep the legend alive, to make us feel welcome and to bring us into the Hurricane family,” said Hurricane president Mike McLaughlin. “2010 will be the year of Hurricane’s official rebirth when the car enters full-time production again, so it made sense to send owners a gift as the New Year arrives.” McLaughlin said the company used their most up-to-date contact information to locate owners, but encourages any current owner who does not receive a package to contact Hurricane via the new company website, www.hurricane-motorsports.com or by calling 888.99.THRILL.
The new owners of Hurricane Motorsports believe it is important to acknowledge the passion of the Roadster owners who made the company such an appealing company to purchase in the first place. The letter seems to conclude it best: “Thank you so much for driving ‘the legend’ that makes Hurricane Motorsports the company, the car, the lifestyle that it is today. We know if you hang with us we’ll all be in for the ride of our lives.”
