March 2007 Corvette of the Month

Doug (& Chrissy) Campbell's 2003 50th Anniversary Edition Convertible

Name: Doug (& Chrissy) Campbell

Current Corvettes: 2003 50th Anniversary Edition Convertible

Previous Corvettes: In 1985 I purchased a 1979 L82 4-Speed, White/Red interior. Couldn't bear to part with it so I sold it to a friend down the street. I can see her anytime I want.

What first attracted you to Corvettes? When was that or how old were you? When I was 7 my father was a Chevrolet dealer and in 1957 I rode in one and have loved them every since. My dream was to own a Corvette, which came true in 1985.

How did you come to acquire this Corvette? In about 1999 or 2000 I decided I wanted a 50th Anniversary Edition. I put a deposit down on one in June 2002. I had not seen one in person, driven, or even ridden in, a C5. The first one I saw was in August 2002 at Hot August Nights. That was the first time I had ever called in sick to work when I wasn't. Priorities you know.
What modifications have you done to this car? Vortex RamAir, Corsa Indy exhaust (w/o X-Pipe), Predator Tune, OEM Z06 wheels (chromed) wrapped in Michelin PS2 Rubber, 6-Point Rollbar, 6-Point Harnesses for Driver and Passenger, Z06 Sway Bars, Fire Extinguisher for Driver, Baer Eradispeed Drilled and Slotted Rotors, Performance Friction Z-Rated Street/Track Brake Pads, Performance Friction Z-Rated DOT-3 Fluid for Clutch and Brakes, LUK Stage II Clutch, Functional Rear Brake Cooling Ducts (non-Z06).

Non-Racing/Performance Mods: Top Down Tech, 3M Clearbra, V1 Radar Detector, CB Radio, Cup Holders by Jack Harris

Modifications Planned: None.

What do you like best about Corvettes? A Corvette is not just a car it is a lifestyle. No matter where you go you have friends, just look for another Corvette. Other than that I like the performance, styling and comfortable ride.

How long have you been a member of RCC? 4 Years. Started attending events in October 2002, my first event was at Aero Brewing in Auburn. I just showed up and was welcomed like I was a member. Some people had made their own labels to put on the bottles, when I saw "DOG SLOBBER" I knew this club was for me. The first meeting I attended was November 2002 and was told I would be voted on in the December meeting. At the December Meeting I was told my paperwork was lost and I'd have to be voted on at the next meeting. Since there was no January meeting I was voted in at the meeting in February 2003.

What offices have you held or runs you've put on? No offices held. Have co-sponsored the Indoor Karting event in January.

What do you like about RCC? The People, the Runs

Other Interesting Facts: In the late 80's I saw a bunch of Corvettes inside a mall, they were from the River City Corvette Club. I thought I would join but didn't get any info that day. Couldn't find a phone number and I don't think Al Gore had invented the Internet yet. I kept looking over the years with no luck. Then in September 2002 I went wine tasting, and this bubbly blonde saw my Corvette hat and we started talking. It turned out she was a member of the club, none other than our own Charity. She twisted my arm to join so I looked into it and the rest is history.
