On June 1st and 2nd the Michigan Chapter of the NCRS hosted its annual chapter judging meet. I and about 15 other Corvette owners subjected our cars to the rigorous inspection of the NCRS judges. Over the course of judging day 5 teams of 2 judges each descended upon our Corvettes measuring their accuracy compared to their as-new condition.

The love that Corvette owners have for one another never was clearer than Sunday in Kentwood, Michigan.
That’s when some 65 Corvettes rumbled past the home of late Kentwood Mayor Richard Root to pay homage to a dedicated Corvette owner who lost his four-year battle with cancer on Friday.

If you scroll through Corvette production numbers between 1970 and 1976 you’ll notice that there’s no mention of the color black in there anywhere. Now, we all know that GM bigwigs could pull some strings and a get a Corvette in essentially any color they wanted. That’s the case here in which GM’s President, Pete Estes, ordered up a loaded black 1972 roadster. We caught up with this rarity at an NCRS event last weekend.
How many 1954 Corvettes can say that they’ve lived their entire life in the same city?
Well, if you go to Howard’s Pizza at the Classic 50s location in Great Falls, Montana, you can see what might be the only one that can make that boast.
It seems that a Great Falls family bought the car new (or maybe a year old) in that city way back in 1955, and the Corvette has been there ever since.
