What first attracted you to Corvettes? When was that or how old were you?
My sister's boy friend had a late 50's Vette he took me for a demo ride in when I was about 16, which made a big impression on me; and I liked them ever since.

How did you come to acquire this Corvette?
I never forget the night after an RCCS meeting, that we stopped at Performance Chevrolet on the way home and saw my first black Z06 sitting on their showroom floor. We thought it was awesome and the seeds were sewn to getting one, which took about 2 years from that point. Most satisfying car purchase of my life.

What modifications, if any, have you done to this car?
Almost nothing; one of the first cars I've owned I've been satisfied with just the way it came out of the factory.

What modifications, if any, do you have planned for this car?
Nothing planned per se, but a nice set of custom wheels would be good.

What do you like best about Corvettes?
Everything non-European about them; aggressive all-American looks with performance to match.

How long have you been members of RCCC?
Almost 13 years; Joined in April 2002

What offices have you held or runs you've put on?

What do you like about RCCC?
The great members; which have led to many friendships we would never have had if we hadn't joined.
