Corvette notes FROM OUR FRIENDS
Wish you all could have been along on our trip to Lake Tahoe we had a ball. On Thursday we left at 8:00 am from Bunker Hill School and
headed south to Myrtle Point and had breakfast. From there we drove to Mt. Shasta and had lunch which was interesting Bud noticed some ho-
bos beside the cars and he had his top down so the guys moved the cars in front of the restaurant. No damage to the cars at least. From there we
moved on down the road to Williams and stayed at Grazella’s. The motel has been remodeled and it was terrific. We ate again at the restraunt in
Next morning we left for Lake Tahoe on the way we stopped and shopped at Placerville. Nice stopping place since we would get into Tahoe at
11:30 or so. Again on the road we arrived at the Montbleu Casino and checked in. Everything was terrific we even had a jacuzzi in the rooms,
Oh! What fun. Of course we gambled and won and lost as expected.
They had about 100 cars and they all were shined and polished and dusted and all the things us guys and gals do to our cars before judging. Of
course I helped this time. They had vendors that sold lots of different stuff so we got to shop also. Ed was a little disappointed because there
were 6 other 50th anniversary models and he was sure that he stood no chance to earn a prize.
We went on the poker run which seemed very short this year and not very scenic but, we saw places we hadn’t seen before which is why they
have poker runs. Back to the Casino and of course to a little gambling and of course resting.
The banquet had very good speakers both gentlemen had raced cars and told us just what they went thru to get sponsors and training to get on the
circuit. There was a video playing of last years cars and winners and of some of the goings on of this year. This was very nice. The awards were
finally handed out and Boy was Ed surprised he took a third in his class out of a field of 30. Pretty good huh!
Since both the Freeman’s and the Nielsen’s had to be home on Monday we left Lake Tahoe behind and drove home. Had a great time and enjoy-
able company. You can’t ask for better.

Answers for fun. May.
1. 1974, to appease OPEC.
2. 1982, as Roger Smith considered a way to get more people to buy the Corvette, without - you know - giving people
what they WANT.
3. One in 1955, one in 1967, and one in 2003.
4. It massages your balls as you rev the engine. Wait, I think I know this one... It was a right hand drive model.
5. Horsepower. I'd say split rear window, but I've never seen a C5 with one of those.
Ok here are some answers to my favorite car.
1. The number of Corvettes produced in 1983 are said to be between 43-47.
2. Only one survives at of course the Corvette Museum.
3. The pink corvette is a 1964 model.
4. Just one exists and was said to be owned by the wife of a Chevy Executive.
5. 1974 Sting Ray
6. I am not sure but the first corvette tested in Germany was the C-5R in 1999-2000.
7. St. Louis 1953-1981, Bowling Green 1981-till date.
8. One millionth corvette was produced on 2nd June 1992. A white convertible with black top.
9. It is located in the National Corvette Museum
