How did you come to acquire this one? My favorite husband (that would be Chuck) gave me the surprise of my life when he had the 2003 sitting in the parking lot at Red Lobster when we came out after celebrating my birthday. Apparently he had bought it a few weeks prior from Anderson’s Chevrolet in the bay area while I was out of town on business. He bought it over the phone and they delivered it to him the following day at his office. He had it stored in his sister’s garage until my birthday. I will never forget that night! Also, you never heard so much screaming in an office full of women as I did the following morning when I told them about my birthday surprise. He was the most loved man by the women but their husbands weren’t too happy when they received phone calls from their wives wanting to know what they were getting for their birthdays!

What modifications were done to this car? Both cars are pure stock.

What modifications are planned for this car? None are planned at this time.

What do you like best about corvettes? The performance, power and good looks.

How long have you been members of RCC? I believe that we joined the club around 1995.

What offices have you held or runs you've put on? Chuck was Treasure in 2000 and is currently serving another term. Joyce was Phone Tree Chairperson in 2000 & 2001. We put on a Disneyland Trip, the annual "Bunko at the Sathre's", and co-hosted the Allen Reed Memorial Poker Run.

What do you like about RCC? We enjoy the assorted runs with great roads and the triple digit speeds. We also enjoy the people and treasure the many friendship we have developed through the years.

What other interesting facts might others enjoy knowing about you? Chuck and Joyce have been married for 28-years, have a 23-year old son and a 17-year old daughter. Chuck works for a mysterious department that collects your income taxes and Joyce works for California State Parks. We’ve been members of RCCC since the mid-90’s. We’ve built three houses as owner/builders and own several rentals. Carpentry is one of Chuck’s favorite hobbies (besides his favorite wife). Our home away from home is Disneyland. We make several times a year and collect Disneyana items. In fact, we have something Disney in every room in our house.
