A Break In the Winter Weather

Finally a break from the record snowfall in December 2008.  Since the first of the year the snow has been melting and this weekend the driveway was  dry.  I was able drive (very slow down the street and back) our new 1957 Chevy Custom for the first time since it was delivered in the snow storm just before Christmas.  I can’t wait for this spring and summer to come.

2007 NCRS Northwest Regional Convention

For as long as I can remember I’ve been a member of the major national car clubs of all the cars I have owned.  2007 was the first time we have been able to participate with a car that could compete on the national level.   We attended the NCRS Corvette Convention in Levanworth, Washington with our 1967 Corvette…the car earned a  “Top Flight” award 97.9 out of 100.  It was pretty cool  to particape rather than just read about it in the clubs bi monthly news letter.  ncrs-023
