Default Brand New Corvette Club... Okeechobee

Hi everyone,

Just want to make a little announcement that we are starting a Corvette Club here in our little town of Okeechobee. The very first meeting will be held at Barracuda's Sports Grillery, located @ 10117 North Hwy. 441.
Patsy Shearer of the National Council on Corvette Clubs will be there.
Light refreshments will be provided. Everyone is welcome! Now's your chance to come visit! I would love to see the whole parking lot overflowing with Corvettes!!! Even if you have no desire to join the club, it would be wonderful to see your Corvette, er... I mean you there!!!

For questions,comments, or suggestions you can e-mail me @ heatison@corvettemail.com or just respond to this. Thanks ;-)

No he don't. Although your right pushing the chassis in and out of the garage is a pain a a few horses would help.

I'm sure you will have more GM horses at your meeting than you can shake a stick at!

I run sales calls down there sometimes. Can't stand the long drive. Maybe you guys will give me a little better reason to come down there!

hey Melanie... :)
glad you are enjoying the forum...i thought that you would...
a lot of really great folks here and its probably the worlds largest concentrated Corvette information center that exists... :yesnod:

as far as the weather goes...i definetly will be there but i can not and will not :rolleyes: purposely or knowingly drive my vette in the rain...
the reason being is the undercarraige...i am VERY fortunate in that the entire underneath is still black...factory black...with very little to no brown...
nor sand for that matter...actually the car has been garage kept all of its life and it IS a southern car hense, no ice, snow and salt...
i know this sounds stupid but i actually put the car on stands occationaly and get under there with a bottle of cleaner and a roll of paper towells and clean up...now, dont get me wrong here, other than rain it IS a daily driver...its by no means a show car...but it is very clean under there... :)
Click the image to open in full size.
as far as driving each others cars goes...im up for that! :thumbs:
ive never driven a C-4 before :)
and the love bugs...AAAGGGHHHH!!!!! i HATE those things!
anyone that has never spent time down here can not imagine what thats like!
and twice a year!!!
see ya real soon and hey, if your downtown during the day stop into the shop and say hi to Co;;een and I... :yesnod:
