July 2012 Corvette of the Month


Bruce and Cate Jinneman

2003 Triple Black Convertible

Is this your first Corvette? No we had a1963 Split Window, 1967 Big Block Coupe, 1978 Pace Car, and a 1991 Coupe.

What first attracted you to Corvettes? When was that or how old were you?
I was in high school when my neighbor bought a ’63 split window.  I just fell in love with the styling and when he took me for a ride the performance was outstanding.  I was hooked for life!

How did you come to acquire this Corvette? All of our kids finally were out of college and Cate and I decided it was time to re-join the Corvette world.  Saw this car advertised as a consignment sale in Placerville and went to take a look.  The car was 7 years old and had less than 5,000 miles.  We took it for a test ride and ended up bringing it home the same day.  Two years later and we just turned 12,000 miles on it.

What modifications, if any, have you done to this car? None

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

What do you like best about Corvettes? Looks and performance.

How long have you been members of RCCC? Two years.

What offices have you held or runs you've put on? Unfortunately, none. My job keeps me too busy traveling and I never know when I will be gone on a trip.
