Art Floyd - A Remembrance & Tribute
The MG Car Club Florida members presented Art Floyd with a
special "Certificate of Appreciation" in 2014:
Certificate of Appreciation
The board and all the members of the MG Car Club Florida acknowledges the
outstanding contributions Art has made to this club and the MG community as
a whole. Art has always been a very active advocate for MGs for many, many
years. He has a long standing relationship with MGs and he has shared this
with the members of our club and their families. Art has served as an
official and unofficial MG Car Club Florida ambassador to the MG clubs,
drivers and enthusiasts in the central Florida area for decades.
Art introduced a whole new generation of MG owners and club members to the
MG family and the MG way of life. His love of all things MG resulted in his
vigorous encouragement to participate in all MG events throughout the state
and region. Art and Yvonne have opened their home to club members on
numerous occasions such as annual picnics, technical sessions, and they have
even been known to rescue a stranded club member or two. Art has also been
the driving force behind encouraging participation in events like the
Flankey family picnic, Orlando Breakfast Club and various British Car
shows. Leading by example, he always asked members to meet him or join him
at countless events over the years.
This club would especially like to thank Art for his willingness to share
all his knowledge and experience with less “MG knowledgeable” club members.
Art has been someone who consistently went out of his way to help a fellow
club member. Whether calling him on the phone, asking for his advice at
events, or stopping by and having him show you something at his house, Art
has always helped those needing assistance and advice. Art is truly the one
club member that has bridged all aspects of the club, from participation in
the club’s earliest beginnings, to club events almost too numerous to count,
to personally providing assistance to club members. Art is always carrying
the MG banner and encouraging us to do more with our cars and do things
Art, we thank you for all the wonderful things you have done for us.

Art will be missed greatly, and fondly remembered ...
