Terry Fong has owned five Corvettes. His first was a 1979 black coupe. He has also owned a 84 two-tone bronze coupe, a 92 metallic red 6 speed LT1, and a 1998 Sebring silver automatic that he bought new. He really wanted a stick so he only had the 98 for about six months and then found his current car, a 1998 Sebring silver coupe 6-speed with the Z-51 suspension.   His list of modifications reads like a "Who's Who" of Corvette aftermarket suppliers but the highlights include ported and polished heads, new cam, Z06 intake manifold, headers, GHL exhaust,  RK Sport hood, Nitrous Express system, Mallet wheels,  a Z06 transmission and a lowered body. His full list of mods appears at the end of this article.

Terry has been in the River City Corvette club for about four years with the last three years as Webmaster. He recently stepped down from that position to devote more time to his new Corvette business. He has joined in partnership with Mark Stein as Motor Sport Image and Performance. Their new shop is at 812 Atlantic Street in Roseville. Terry previously did restoration and repair work at Corvette Care in Rancho Cordova. He specializes in the C5 Corvette from suspension, brakes, superchargers, and nitrous systems.

Terry has been a Reserve Police Officer with the Sacramento Police department for the last 20 years. He is a certified rangemaster, background investigator and recruiter. Terry has a large following of loyal Corvetters from all around Northern California.
