This was my 3rd year at this great, and
Many thanks to Sue and
Doug Kiry, directors of the event, Mike Kaminski,
the very much
hands-on 4th generation owner of the beautiful Chula
and his Director of Special Events, Ed Saari, for their hospitality!
Once again, they allowed me to do a 50/50
for the American Cancer Society
which this year produced $933.00!

Original owner '63
How cool is this: Steve Stone bought this '63 convert new when he was 18. At the
time of this Corvette Adventures weekend he had
racked up 502,000 miles on it. He told me that almost
nothing on the car is "original", but he still has the original
engine stored away.
He has driven it through all of the contiguous 48 states, and EVERY Canadian
province! A lot of the miles were actually track time!

Thanks you Mike, Ed, Sue and Doug for
