  • Corvette enthusiast from Oregon

    Thanks for the invitation to join this new forum.
    My wife and I are both long-time Corvette enthusiasts with very different background stories. I bought and rebuilt my first Corvette, a 1961, in 1972. Bought and rebuilt a 1964 Coupe in 1975. Bought and rebuilt a 1971 Coupe in 1977. Owned that coupe when I met my future wife who was driving a 1974 convertible. She estimates that the `74 was her 40th Corvette. Yes, 40 Corvettes over a 15 year time span. Since we have been married, we have slowed down considerably on buying Corvettes. Since 1985, we sold both our C3's, owned two C4's, a C5 and our current C6, a 2010 Grand Sport Convertible.
    I love the history and heritage of Corvette. I love to read about Corvettes, work on Corvettes, detail Corvettes and DRIVE Corvettes.

    Having three times travelled on an extra long, many states’ road voyage with “the duckvetts,” I can attest that they are great road trippers! Are also great Corvette detailers. And have skilled Corvette repair skills.

    In short, a strong and knowledgeable addition to our forum!
