That is a very good question! Here is the reasoning behind our name: To a woman, a Clutch is a purse that is meant to carry only your most meaningful items. Small, slim, efficient — if it is in a woman’s clutch, you know it’s essential or dear to her heart. To a man, however, the Clutch is that ethereal connection between driver and engine that links heart and soul in the most sacred bond between man and machine. A bond that is matched by few other companions in this life and that in the simplest of gestures, a “shift” if you will, conveys the emotion of “let’s move forward.”
Finally, the most widely used definition of Clutch means “to hold tightly or eagerly onto something.” Whether native to the area or newly arrived, we are all looking or have found something to grasp onto here in the Mid-Ohio Valley. We want, above all else, for you to find something new, old, or re-discovered to hold onto that makes this region meaningful to you.
