In June of every year, the town of Le Mans, France becomes the race capital of the world. For 24 hours, the racing world comes to Le Mans and watches 60 cars in 4 classes drive day and night. One of the classes involve the Corvette Racing Team. The history of racing Corvettes began in 1960 – 58 years ago. Briggs Cunningham, a wealthy racer, fielded a trio of Corvettes at the French Classic. Corvette #3 finished 8th overall and 1st in GT class. In 1967, the second generation Corvette made it to Le Mans. Drivers Dick Guldstrand and Bob Bondurant drove a 1967 Big Block L-88. The engine lasted about 12 hours before it gave up.

In 1976, John Greenwood brought his “Spirit of Le Mans” to France and qualified 9th for the race. The Corvette with 700 horsepower was running strong up to the 16th hour when he suffered a blown tire that forced the car out of the race. Next month, I will continue the story with the C-5, C-6, and C-7 Corvettes at Le Mans. Thanks to Gary Maleski for arranging the trip to Tom Malloy’s Car Collection in Corona. For those who couldn’t attend, you really missed an incredible Indy car collection and a lot of one-of-a-kind cars. Check out the Club’s website and monthly newsletter for pictures.

George & Sandy on a Treasure Hunt in Monterey, CA George and Sandy McMullen and Jay and Marcia Lynch attended the Monterey Corvettes car show held at the Hilton Hotel in Seaside, CA on June 1, and June 2, 2018. There were approximately 120 cars present. This was an "All Corvette" show. There were several events to chose from. The two main events were the Treasure Hunt and the Poker Run. The treasure hunt required the participants to locate various items located on the wharf, in Monterey, based on hints handed out prior to the start. In order to prove that you actually identified the item, a photo had to be taken showing the participant and the item together. Those that identified all the items on the list had their names placed in a container to be drawn at the closing Banquet. All prizes were very generous cash prizes. The Poker Run wound its way through Cannery Row in Monterey, through the “17 Mile Drive” through Carmel Canyon, and finally, back to the hotel. The total run was approximately 60 miles. The winners were George and Sandy McMullen with 3 eights. (nice monetary reward) The event ended with a very nice banquet on Saturday night. All of the awards were presented at the banquet. There were items to bid on as well as a 50/50 drawing.

Over all, a very nice time. The photos supplied were taken during the Treasure Hunt.

Tom Malloy: Auto Racing in His Blood (Corvette Super Sports Visits His Wonderful Collection) by Gary J. Maleski When I was a young boy, I remember the countless times that my parents and I would gather around our television, and put on Channel 7, and watch (in my eyes) the most exciting thing I ever saw: the Indianapolis 500. As the years went on, I never missed it. The excitement and sometimes chaos on the track stay with me to this day. I look at the legendary drivers in my early life, whom I admired, but never thought I would meet. Luckily for me, I had a chance to work in media for Vintage Auto Racing. This gave me an opportunity to interview the likes of Emerson Fittipaldi, Mario Andretti, Danny Sullivan, and A.J. Foyt, and others. I had the experience also, of renting rides in various types of race cars, but nothing compared to what I saw in the collection of Tom Malloy.

Corvette Super Sports was invited to see the Tom Malloy car and memorabilia collection in Corona. The caravan of Corvettes left Coco's Restaurant on Saturday, June 9th at 7:45 am to travel to Tom Malloy's. Tom has, as far as I am concerned, one of the most impressive collections of Indy cars in the world. So how did auto racing get into Tom's blood? There were many racing experiences that fed his interest. Tom grew up around race cars and racing. Introduced heavily by his father, Emmett, (who was just recently inducted into the Sprint Car Hall of Fame), Emmett built the Carrell Speedway. It was a half mile dirt oval, which later on was paved in Gardena, California. This became the hub for west coast racing. Tom had the chance to watch legends like Johnny Parsons, Parnelli Jones, Troy Ruttman, and Bill Vukovich, and the ultimate, was when Emmett brought a team of his own to race in the Indianapolis 500 in the 1950s. Was this a dangerous pursuit?

Yes, there is always danger in racing. In fact, Tom's father tried to steer his son from the world of racing. Fortunately for all of us who have met Tom and his passion for racing, this did not happen. In 1992 Tom attended the Skip Barber Racing School in Sonoma, California. Now racing and his love for the cars was officially in his blood. So as the years went on, Tom put together a fantastic collection of race cars and memorabilia. He feels an obligation to honor each car because these cars have much history, and he wants people to appreciate that heritage. This is a wonderful thing for the racing world.

We got to see dozens and dozens of spectacular race cars, and more, and needless to say, I felt like a kid in a candy store. By the expressions and smiles of the other Corvette Club members, they felt the same way. Thank you Tom; blood transfusion completed.

NCCC PRESIDENT’s MESSAGE June 2018 I heard someone say that life is like a “merry-go-round.” You get on the ride when it is stopped and ride around not knowing where or when it will stop, and all you do is go around in circles. Our lives are a lot like a “merry-go-round.” We get up in the morning in the place we live and the day passes and we return to the place we live and start over again in the morning on the “merry-go-round” of life! The day of the week is different, the weather can change, and the time might not be the same, but the routine is the same each day.

So how do we make each day different which in turn will make us feel like there is a change in our lives? I suggest we try each day to make someone’s day better. It’s as easy as saying “Good Morning” to a person we see each day, or saying “Thank You” to someone who has done something for you. These simple statements which cost us nothing may change and make a difference in that person’s life. We never know what kind of day a person is having or what merry-go-round they are on. Be a bright spot in someone’s day! The reward on the “merry-go-round of life” is you will feel better making someone smile. When you do this, you will find blessings will come your way for making someone else feel good each day.

The last week of April 2018 I experienced the full week of exciting things happening at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY. I have been to the “Corvette Bash” but never was able to stay all week and enjoy all the NCM offers to everyone who attends. One thing I noticed all five days at the NCM was the friendliness from all the staff. I watched as people entered the NCM being welcomed and treated like VIPs’. No matter who or what they needed to know, every NCM staff person directed them to where they needed to go or answered any question they may have had. No one left without a “HAVE A GREAT DAY.” How nice it would be if the whole world was like this. I encourage you to visit the NCM if you have never been there or better yet, attend one of the major events held each year. I promise you will have a good time and feel good about going. In 2016 NCCC voted to support a new charity with the Corvette raffle program. The Charity NCCC Governors voted to support was St. Jude Children Research Hospital in Memphis TN. Seven years ago NCCC Mid-Illinois Corvette Club decided to start a St. Jude Corvette Drive to support the Hospital in Memphis. This year Mid-America Motorworks in Effingham Illinois was added to the drive as a “stop for lunch” location on the route from Peoria to Memphis. I had the pleasure of driving with 80 other Corvettes on the drive to Memphis. All drivers had to raise funds to participate on the drive. What a fun day driving to Memphis and visiting the St Jude Hospital. Together the 81 Corvettes on the drive raised over $240,000 for St. Jude. If you ever wonder what to do in your Corvette, wonder no more. The Peoria team is already planning the 2019 drive to Memphis in May. You need to try it one time to experience the fun. The 80 Corvettes were divided into four groups led by a police car with lights on all the way to Memphis. How much fun it was to see people driving in the left lane on the expressway pull over for the police car and see 20 Corvettes following the police car drive past them. You can check it out online: stjudedrives.org. Please put this on your “bucket list” for next year. Remember to be kind to everyone. Hold a door open when you can. Say “Hi” to the next person you see. Tell someone to have a nice day, and for sure thank someone who has done something for you. It makes them feel good and you also. You will be amazed at the change you can make and you never know, you may end up with a new friend.

Summer is here….drive the Corvette. Get out and have some fun! Be safe and God bless you all! Dave Heinemann President NCCC

Where You Can Find Corvette Parts and Merchandise For those of you who have been into Corvettes for awhile most – or all – of the following will not be news to you, but for you relative newcomers to the love of Vettes this offering is being made to help you find the parts you may need for your classic or the trim add-ons you might want to buy to personalize your Vette or the clothing, gear, etc. you might like to own to show others of your interest in the sport. It’s amazing just how many publications are out there that are dedicated to Corvettes and how helpful many of them can be. Following is a list and quick summary of the more popular catalogs that you might want to look into. Most of them are available for routine periodic mailing if you request it, and most of them have a web site from which you can peruse their offerings. Me, I prefer to receive the catalogs so that I can better see just what’s out there I might not have not seen before.

The three largest, most popular catalogs with the most items that are non-“parts” are: a. Mid America Motorworks, www.mamotorworkscom, (800) 500-1500; b. Eckler’s Corvette, www.ecklersCorvette.com, (800) 327-4868; c. Corvette America, www.CorvetteAmerica.com, (800) 458-3475. Those publications periodically also publish catalogs geared specifically for a single generation of Corvettes so when they ask you for the year and model you drive don’t be afraid to tell them. Then there are catalogs that are almost exclusively for parts, especially of older model Corvettes: a. Volunteer Vette Products, www.volvette.com, (865) 521-9100; b. J & D Corvette, www.jdcorvette.com, (800) 838-8353 (located locally in Bellflower, CA). For trim and accessory items as well as clothes, furniture and the like, you should look at: a. Corvette Central, www.CorvetteCentral.com, (800) 345-4122. They have an accessories catalog and a separate catalog of parts, etc., for each generation of Corvettes.

b. Burston Marketing’s Corvette Collection, www.CorvetteCollection.com, (800) 653-1375. c. And finally, the catalog from the retail store at the National Corvette Museum, www.CorvetteMuseum.org, (800) 538-3883. In addition to the above, you might also consider visiting the show rooms of Corvette Mike’s at 1133 North Tustin Avenue and West Coast Corvettes, 1210 N. Kraemer Blvd., both are located near each other in Anaheim just off the 91 freeway in Anaheim. They have a selection of GM authorized accessories and clothes for sale, as well as an indoor Corvette sales room with used road gems. Both also maintain service departments for installing accessories and the like and for general maintenance of Corvettes. West Coast Corvettes has a new catalog that was just released and is available for pick-up at the store. (Price is pre-printed on each catalog as $12.95, but don’t be fooled, they’re free - just ask for one.)
