History of the F.A.S.T. club and how it plays a role today in our Facebook group.
Back in the early '90's. there were several guys in Michigan that I got to know who started up a hang-out and named it the F.A.S.T. club. Fast stands for;
Not long after, that name and that club of members all went their separate ways. Fast forward to 2015. I started the 1st facebook group for sizzlers and one of the members of the original fast club offered it up to me for this Facebook group stating that there is no actual owner for that FAST club name. In order to protect the name, it was trademarked accordingly to remain the Intellectual property of Alex Peter, creator and founder of the very first Sizzlers group on facebook, and this guarantees that the name will stay with the group itself.
Some guys from Michigan that I knew from the 90s through BBS Bulletin board systems who were in the hobby, and others who worked with me through ebay, etsy, amazon, Ioffer, Instagram, Twitter, Myspace and my website, joined my Facebook group. The FAST club(TM) is our official group name group name,
Today, we have 4 sizzlers groups, and 1 Chopcycle/RRRumblers group; Fast Club for all collectors, and great participants to support the hobby, which is mainly a social media discussion and support group. The sizzlers shop buy sell trade for resale which has no affilliation to what goes on in the fast club, and this is where buying, selling, trading & other diecast is dealt with, the Sizzlers Take It Or Leave It Group (TIOLI) Group where its sole intent is for members to buy sell and trade, the Chopcycles and Rrrumblers group and multiple sizzlers related pages. The groups are growing with great members who maintain the originality of cars and show off their custom rides too. The members are an integral part of the hobby. If anyone who is into these toys is NOT in any of these specific groups, then its because they were labeled as bad traders. There is a home for them also filled with bad traders that usually get spotted, removed and reported to the All Diecast Reference Group.
Come Join us if Sizzlers is your thing! Honesty, Integrity and Leadership are key to becoming a FAST club member. There is zero tolerance for any backdoor activity, scamming or any bad dealings.
We all worked together back then and there was no person with what ever we contributed. We were all specialized in what we did from the days of Reality Replicas to todays Sizzlers Shop selling only original High end restoration and parts that no body ever brought to the table before.
Most all of the pioneers in this hobby are in the FAST club. There is a lot of great inside information offered there, very rare cars, customs, originals, restorations and lots of great conversation. I am proud to say we have a great group and its considered to be the "only" worthwhile Sizzlers group out there.
