Welcome from the 2017 Tarheel Tigers Club Officers
PRESIDENT - Alan Finlayson
Alan has lived in the Raleigh area for 20 years. After a long career in healthcare, retired and now owns Restoration 1, a water, fire, and mold mitigation company. Alan has been working on cars since a small boy when his Dad would teach him things and is currently bringing back to life a 1969 GTO Judge. Alan and wife Michelle live in Raleigh with their dog Louie.
VICE PRESIDENT - Floyd Cook
Floyd is in his second year as a member of the Tarheel Tigers and is looking forward to working with the other officers and members of the club to keep things moving forward and to attract new membership. He owns a 1967 GOAT that was purchased the day after he turned 16. His day job as a National Account Manager for Stanley Security pays for the activities that he pursues outside of work.
SECRETARY - Amanda Liimatainen
Amanda is a wife, mother, and recruiter. When that doesn't keep her busy enough, she is likely working on a project around the house or running errands in her convertible 1967 Lemans. Amanda writes the club member bios and enjoys the members as much as the cars. She joined the club to learn more about both.
TREASURER - Mike Zeinstra
Original Mid-Westerner from Grand Rapids, Michigan. Graduated from Michigan State University with a Masters in Euchre. Owner of a family-owned 1978 Pontiac Trans Am; Dad bought it originally in 1978. Currently employed by the Office of State Human Resources as a Planning Manager; project management, process improvement, measures, and data analysis. Currently has two collies; errh one collie named Jack and one half-kangaroo/half-rat called Farrah. (affectionately called the Furry Rat or Rodent of Unusual Size if you know the reference!)
Married to a beautiful woman Maria who got bit by the muscle car bug and promptly bought us a 1966 Pontiac Lemans that we're restomodding. In our spare time, we hike the local mountains and backpack the Grand Canyon almost every year. Likes pasty, PB&J, chocolate chip cookies with milk, graham crackers and frosting, and red-velvet cake. Hates Kale, grapefruit, and the designated hitter rule.
Favorite motto; "Be the kind of person your dog thinks you are."
