Winter - 2003
Save the Wave
Oh, wintertime in Florida! The weather is
getting cooler (below 80) and that means Registry members up north are putting
their C5s away for the winter. And itıs also time to start dreaming about next
yearıs Corvette season. Fortunately, for those of us below the Mason-Dixon line,
itıs a great time for a top-down road trip! Members up north had their season,
and now . . . for us Southerners, itıs OUR season!
While driving my C5 in sunny Florida, I have noticed a lack
of Corvette waving! The Corvette Wave has always been something that sets us
apart from Porsche and Viper owners. This part of the Corvette lifestyle seems
to be fading lately. A group of Corvette enthusiasts have started an internet
petition to "Save the Wave" by requesting that GM include some text on the
"wave" in the ownerıs manual for every new Corvette.
If you are interested in signing the petition, visit
petition.html and add your name to the list! Part of my 2003 New Yearıs
resolution is to wave more! I, myself, have become lax in waving . . .but I am
now reformed! Jake assures me he is still an adamant waver since his first
Corvette in 1978! Letıs all make a concerted effort to keep Corvetterıs Waving!
I am hanging out the "Help Wanted" sign here
at the C5 Registry office, but it needs to be seen out West! Janet Curran
[C5R# W0477], along with her husband, Mike, is relinquishing her duties as
our West Coast Coordinator. After five years of unselfish service to the
C5 Registry, Janet needs to get back and concentrate on home, family and
business! We will always be so grateful to Janet for all she has done to
establish C5 Registry West Coast events! If any of you are interested in
helping continue the fine tradition that Janet has started, please let me
know! I am sure that Janet will be glad to fill you in and help you get
started. She will still be attending events and helping out where she can.
Note: Words cannot express how much we appreciate what Janet and Mike have
done for the C5 Registry! One of the joys of being involved in the
Registry is all the great people you get to meet. Janet and Mike are one
class act! I consider myself a better person since getting to know them.

I hope all of you had a great holiday season! And as you can
tell by our Events Schedule, 2003 has lots of Corvette FUN in store for the C5
Registry! It should be a great year!
