Corvette club of South Australia Inc.

 

 

My love for Corvettes started when I was 21, I purchased a framed photo of a C3 in red with a tan interior, had it on my bedroom wall for years, it's in the Man Cave today, After seeing David Daw driving his yellow C3 in the same complex I lived in, I eventually went over to have a chat about it, within minutes Dave kindly took me for a drive on the northern expressway, I was hooked! Not long after that I bought a 25th anniversary C3, needed a little work but was unmolested.

Eventually had the 350 sb fitted with alloy heads, mild cam etc etc, now it drove like a Corvette, circumstances came that I had to sell it, but I missed the club runs so I purchased a cheap red C4, however the footwell was too narrow for me and the conversion was a nightmare so eventually sold it and a Jaguar XK8 to raise the money for the C5 I now have.

I bought it from Andrew Temby from Vic, (ex racing driver) who did a few mods to engine but was otherwise stock and only 30k on the clock, After having previously sat in in Rudys C5 I like the comfort and more modern cockpit so i looked for a C5 and found it on CCSA web site, Andrew spent 5 days in his work shop fitting new tyres, new road/track brakes, changed all fluids in car, polished it up, ready for me to drive it home to SA, needless to say it poured with rain all the way home, I also found out on the journey home that if you turn off traction control you can overtake a combie van sideways, but you need to carry spare underpants.

Kate and I really enjoy the club runs and the people who make up the club, so I guess im gonna have a Corvette for a long long time.
