Is this your first Corvette? If not, list previous years, styles, and colors:
  This is our 5th Corvette.  
  Our first was a '69 T top,  light metallic blue.
  #2 was a 2001 coupe, silver.
  #3 was a 2005 coupe, silver.
  #4 is a 2008 Z06, black.
  #5 was a 2003 coupe, spiral grey.

What first attracted you to Corvettes? When was that or how old were you?   I was 16 years old when I got a ride in a friends '62 fuelie. I was hooked. At 18, I spotted a black '57 for $600.00. I didn't get it because I couldn't get my Mom to co-sign for a loan.

How did you come to acquire this Corvette? We bought this car at Performance, and later got the 2003 there too.

What modifications, if any, have you done to this car?   he only modifications made are cosmetic, like spoiler, wheels and chrome letters.

What modifications, if any, do you have planned for this car?  No more mods are planned.

What do you like best about Corvettes?  The thing I like about Corvette's are the looks and the performance. But not necessarily in that order. 

How long have you been members of RCCC?
Mickey and I have been members for about twelve years.

What offices have you held or runs you've put on?  
We've never held an office or put on a run, but have volunteered a few times including cake duty for a year and a couple of times after that.

What do you like about RCCC?
As everyone will agree, it's the people in this club that make it special, kinda like an extended family.

What other interesting facts might others enjoy knowing about you? (Occupation, hobbies, family, recent vacation, etc. Feel free to add any other interesting Corvette related story.):

I retired about ten years ago. I was an engraver, silversmith and goldsmith since I was 19. Mickey retired before me.  She used to build main frame computers. For a hobby, I dabble in oil, acrylic and water color painting. 
Mickey just came back from visiting her family in Korea in June.
