There's something special about the world of private memberships. That feeling of exclusivity, knowing that you have access to something others don't, is intoxicating. Couple that with the allure of high octane motorsports and exotic cars you've only seen in magazines and you've got Shift Auto Society. It's like a country club for automotive enthusiasts.
Though they aren't open just yet, this remarkably hidden (yet incredibly visible) gem is located in downtown Wichita, KS. The deceptively large building, while still undergoing an overhaul, holds more storage space than you can imagine, a showroom, wash bay, in house professional detail team, conference room, lounge, theatre, locker rooms and a high end security system with remote access for its members. In short, members who drive the best expect the best and Shift intends to deliver.
I was recently given the opportunity to take a tour of the facility and see what all the fuss was about. It did not disappoint. The 3 vehicles I captured while I was there are just what sat in their showroom (visible to the public if you're in the neighborhood of Waterman & Market). Back in the storage area was a nice collection of vehicles that, for privacy reasons, I'll leave out.. but if you're seriously interested, their Social membership price is fair and gets you 24/7 access to the clubhouse.
