December 2012 Corvette of the Month

Wayne and Bess Turrell
1981 Coupe Icebox White Exterior, Red Interior
First Corvette
1992 I was driving down Riverside in Roseville. I spied a White 81 Vette in a car dealers window showroom and I bought it....after I " Bess" also agreed....our friends said WHY!!! would Wayne buy a Vette at his age he's over the midlife thing....we all wondered why too!!! He drove that car all over the place was his daily driver car.....I had my Olds so much more comfortable.....
In 2002 I had the Vette modified with a 383 Stroker Engine ---350 Turbo Transmission and all Running Gear and Suspension all modified to 2000 standards also installing Rack and Pinion Steering and larger Disc Brakes also adding NITROUS.....
We would like to repaint and redo the interior same color.
The Vette is probably the best sports car for the money on the market.
Bess and I have been a member since 92/93...Brenda Tarter saw my car in front of our office as she was shopping next door, she also went to Bess's hairdresser's...small world...she suggested we join the club.....
We have not held any offices, although Wayne ran for Pres. and didn't win....we were involved in many other business clubs at the time in Roseville, Rocklin, Folsom, Lincoln, Sacramento, Elk Grove.
Wayne is retired from the Air Force and he and Bess moved from pillar to post....crossed the US 5 times. While in the AF stationed in FL 2 yrs., GA for 3 yrs., lived in England for 3 yrs., stationed at Beale AFB until a tour in Japan, Thailand, and Viet Nam and finally retired in 1976 from Beale.....also lived in MA for 8 months...have 3 sons, been married 53 yrs. wow....time flies....
Wayne and Bess retired after 20 yrs. from their Personnel Business in Roseville in 2005 are sooo enjoying retirement....
