Hope everyone had a nice Easter. We

had brunch with my family and dinner

with Jan’s so in true CVC style had

plenty to eat.

With some longer runs (Laughlin,

Mystery Run, North by Northwest)

coming up I thought I’d go over some of

the basic “rules of the road” for runs.

This is not meant as criticism towards

any members, just reminders for

members new and old. Please be on

time. The schedule for the rest of the

day is predicated on an on-time

departure. Try to check out your CB

before the run. Start the run with a full

tank of gas and keep it topped off

through the run. During the run listen

up on your CB for instructions from the

leader on lane changes, speed changes,

turns, etc. Informal CB conversation is

fine, just don’t overdo it.

Try to maintain a constant distance

between you and the Corvette in front of

you. Don’t leave too big of a gap as it

tends to frustrate the drivers behind you

and allows other vehicles to get into the

group. This causes the group to gradually

split up and the ensuing speeding up by

cars in back to catch up. This can cause

safety problems, so remember to keep

the convoy “closed up”.

Our annual picnic is coming up on May

1 st . The cost has gone up a bit from

previous years and we will be voting on

approving those funds at the April

general meeting. A large majority of

members have signed up for the picnic

and a good time will be had by all. Once

again, many thanks to the Kroekers for

providing the use of Kroekerville. It is a

perfect place for a picnic.

October 22nd has been set as the date

for our Twenty Fifth Anniversary Party at

the Garrahan’s. Charlotte and her party

committee will be providing more info as

time goes on.

See you all at the next meeting.

‘In the Garage’ by Jeff Levine

Where have all the woodies gone? Nick Alexander owned all of these.

They were sold at a special auction in August 2009 at Pebble Beach.

Nick was selling out to focus more on his ranches and horses.

He was a BMW dealer in Los Angeles and had been actively

working on his collection for nearly 12 years.

A complete collection of 60, V-8-powered, Ford and Mercury

wood-bodied cars from 1932-'52 sold for $7 mil. in 4 hours!
