April 2006 Corvette of the Month

Don and Patti Herberger's 2002 Torch Red Convertible

Name: Don and Patti Herberger

Current Corvette: 2002 Torch Red Convertible

Previous Corvettes: None, we were virgins before.

What first attracted you to Corvettes? When was that or how old were you? Don has always wanted a corvette since 1953, the first time he saw one. That would make him 10 years old.
Patti started liking them when she saw how happy the Corvette makes Don, but she was only a kindergartener when Don was 10. ;o)

How did you come to acquire this Corvette? We were looking for a new sports car. We drove a BMW sports car and I asked Don, "You know if we get this, it will be your 'Corvette' replacement and I don't want to listen to you any more." ;o) We left that place, drove to Performance Chevrolet and bought the Corvette that same day.
What modifications have you done to this car? Nada

Modifications Planned: Only to buy a Valentine so Patti does not get any more tickets.

What do you like best about Corvettes? Everything, what's not to like?

How long have you been a member of RCC? 5 years

What offices have you held or runs you've put on? Ooooops..........but we have helped. Right now, Patti is the phone tree manager. And Don is the Bud Light manager.

What do you like about RCC? We have made some very good friends in this club. We like that no one is arguing, at the meetings, and the Corvette runs are always fun.

Other Facts: Well, right now our occupation and hobbies are being "care givers" to both Don's mom and Patti's mom and Patti's mom is in Chico...........so I guess Chico is our vacation, too. ;o) The most memorable trip, in the corvette, was our first year in RCCC and doing the Corvette 50th Anniversary Run to BowlingGreen.
