General Questions


How long was the club operating? When did it start?

Been going since April of 2010 and have grown and become more organized and professional since then as a club and have grown stronger as a family.

How did it start?

We were all in separate clubs and were getting tired of all the drama in those clubs so we all quit and got together and decided to start our own but do it differently than anyone else. We wanted it to be more like a family.

How did you come up with the name?

We all sat down for dinner one night at a meeting and just started throwing out names and when the words DEVIANT and CONCEPTZ came out everyone stopped and we knew that was the name.

How many members in your club?

We have 12 members with 7 actively showing. It’s not about the numbers to us. We want all our members to be as dedicated as we are.

What kind of cars are in your club?

We have all kinds of cars, everything from euros to imports to bikes, all makes and models are welcome. We wanted to make it diverse.

Where is the club based (City, State/Province, and Country)?

The club is based out of Tampa, Fl.

Are there any chapters / offshoots? If so, where are they based and how many members do they have?

No, just us, we didn’t want to make it too big too fast.

What is your club all about? (What do you do together, how often do you meet, what do you offer your members, etc.)

Deviant Conceptz is a group of people from all walks of life, we strive to be the best we can and to show others what true car enthusiasts are all about. We have meetings once a month to cover our business and upcoming events. We all get together throughout the week just to hang out and relax. Every couple of months we have a barbeque or we plan a fun event for all of us to go to.

Tell us anything else unique / of interest to our readers about who you are.

Our unusual ways and our closeness as a family has allowed us to grow and expand and get our name recognized very quickly and we only hope to continue to grow the Deviant Conceptz family.
