What first attracted you to Corvettes? When was that or how old were you? We went to many crab feeds and had a lot of fun. We had to buy a corvette to join the club. About 3 years ago a very nice lady and her elderly husband offered to sell us their corvette. 

How was this Corvette acquired? Some friends who were at Performance Chevy called us and said we had to see this car on the showroom floor. It was exactly what we wanted if we bought another one. At the time we were starting to put a lot of money into the 85 and figured a new one would be cheaper.

Modifications: Nothing.

Modifications Planned: I would like to chrome the wheels and change the exhaust.

What do you like best about Corvettes? They go very fast, they look very nice and they are very fun. (I actually like cleaning it too.)

How long have you been a member of RCC?  About 3 years

What offices have you held or runs you've put on? I am currently Vice President. I haven’t put on any runs yet but I am looking forward to in the future.
