Preston Chevrolet Show, June 21 2009

This was our second time participating in a Corvette show. Dee and I had to drive through a summer downpour to get there and then spend an hour cleaning the car after we arrived, but so did everyone else, so we had the opportunity to watch others deal with the clean-up and see how far they were willing to go to prepare for the show, which was a judged affair. The rest of the day was overcast, but it was a high quality field of cars and the event a great success.

Ironwood Show & Shine, June 27 2009

The Good News: My Z06 won Best in Class, Stock 1980 to Present. What a pleasant surprise! Thanks to everyone who voted for the car- I'm so glad you enjoyed it enough to do that.

The Bad News: I left my camera at home!
Translation: contributors welcome!

What a great show and a great experience.

Dennison Chevrolet Show, June 14 2009

My wife Dee and I attended our first Corvette show as owners at the Riverside Corvette Club's all-makes event at Dennison Chevrolet in the Richmond Auto Mall (Richmond, B.C.) on June 14, my birthday! It was a high-calibre gathering of Corvettes, rods and muscle, the best of which was a Tuxedo Black 1966 Chevelle SS396, all stock and all original. I do not have a photo, so if anyone else can contribute, I'd like to post it.

Here we go:

The star of the show, Corvette ZR1 #004.

1930 MG won Best British.

'61 Biscayne 2-door post with modern underpinnings.

My Electron Blue 2002 Z06.

The best Cadillac ever? 2009 CTS-V. 550 bhp, a 7.59 at the Nurburgring.

I Love Corvettes

I love Corvettes. Always have.

I bought my first one in September 2008: a 2002 Electron Blue
Z06. It's all stock and original, only 18,000 miles.
I love Corvettes. Always will.
