What first attracted you to Corvettes? When was that or how old were you? In 1965 when the first “rat” powered Corvettes came out the word on the street was they were the quickest street cars ever built. I was very impressed when the first one showed up at our weekly street race.

How did you come to acquire this Corvette? Our 1999 had over 100,000 miles on it and I figured we might start having problems with it. I really liked the Shale interior with the Anniversary Red so we made a deal when our Corvette Club sponsor dealer in Memphis got one in.

What modifications, if any, have you done to this car? Corsa exhaust, Black Wing air filter and Indy Pace Car decals.

What modifications, if any, do you have planned for this car? None

What do you like best about Corvettes? The look, horsepower and handling ability. It also is a great way to meet people and socialize.

How long have you been members of RCCC? Joined River City in 1978, we left CA in 2002 and returned in June 2010 and rejoined the club.

What offices have you held or runs you've put on? Diana worked on the phone committee in the past.
We are the current “cake people”.

What do you like about RCCC? Club members and day runs.

What other interesting facts might others enjoy knowing about you? Diana retired from Pacific Bell and I retired from Campbell Soup Company and then Menlo Logistics. Diana enjoys Golf, working out at a local fitness facility and bike riding. I love to Golf, complete projects around the house and work on cars.
