As you learned in our last posting, Joyce and I enjoy all facets of the automobile hobby. This includes auto racing, i.e. NASCAR, dirt track, drags, endurance and Formula 1 to name a few. We also restore classic cars and currently have a 1966 Mustang coupe and a 1973 Corvette Stingray coupe. The Corvette is a “show car” and we are constantly spending weekends, during the late spring, summer and early fall on the car show circuit in the local area. To this date we have collected over two-dozen trophies for the Corvette to include “Best in Class” at the 2003 annual Concours d’ Elagance held by the National Council of Corvette Clubs.

Each year the Freestate Corvette Club, located near Baltimore, Maryland, hosts a “Corvette Weekend” at Ocean City, Maryland. This year we had decided to participate one last time in its most cherished event, the “Boardwalk Parade of Corvettes.” It also gave us the opportunity to try out our new car trailer as well as renew old friendships made while we were very active in the Corvette Club scene.

The weekend was gorgeous. The trip there an back uneventful. The fellowship was endearing. And the boardwalk ride was as exciting as ever. Check out the photos labeled “Corvette Weekend 2006”.
