It's raining outside as I write this, not exactly Corvette weather. We're coming into the season of Vettes... what is the saying, March comes in like a Zebra and goes out like a Wildebeest? Something like that.
All this rain should make for some good
flowers. Out in the desert, once again it
should be beautiful for the Corvettes of
Bakersfield Gamblers Classic. Two years
ago it rained like the dickens (first time in
decades, or so they want us to believe),
last year it was gorgeous. For serious
green lovers we have the annual St.
Patricks Day Parade, when we all become
Irish. For those who also happen to like
Corvettes, green or otherwise, the NCRS
show in San Marcos is worth a look. I hear
tell some of our very own North Coast
Vettes members will have their cars there.
Long Beach and Pomona are having swap
meets for those who think parts is parts.
Our annual banquet is on the 23rd, yum,
April flowers with Corvettes. Our own North Coast Vettes Weseloh Car Show unavoidably and unfortunately conflicts with the Corvette Fun Run this year. We really did not intend for that to happen and apologise to anyone who has to choose between the two. If anyone goes to both, I'd love to hear about it! That is Corvette Fever! If we all pitch in with the show we can make it as good as the past shows.
Remember: If at first you don't succeed,
skydiving isn't for you. No, that's not it...
Where there's a will, there's relatives. No,
not that one either... Where there's a Vette,
there's a Wave!
Temecula Rod Run
February 17, 1996, Wes & Kathy DeHoll,
Bob Levers and Joel & Laurie Garry
made a run to the north. We took S14 to
76 to the Main Street Cafe in Fallbrook for
brunch. Then we went to Temecula, where
thousands upon thousands of hot rods and
hot rodders took over the entire Old
Temecula. There were even a number of
Vettes there with familiar faces around and
about. Several dozen of the rods had been
in the Vista Burger Run in January.
There was a karaoke stage set up by one
of the radio stations. As I walked past,
some moderately wasted guy was
attempting to get the crowd going to "Louie,
Louie." A guy said, "this guy would sound
better if he had another beer." I replied in
my best Groucho voice "he would sound
better if everyone had another beer." As I
walked off, I heard a number of comments
echoing the sentiment, to the effect of "well,
I can drink to that," "me too" etc. And a
good time was had by all. Man, those
uncorked supercharged rat motors sound
great! And a whole conga line of '58
Chevy's just cruisin' by...
