Our Corvette Story

My dad has owned a corvette for as long as I can remember – while I lived with him in Florida, and he still owns a corvette. My step father in NC, as of the late 1990s owned two corvettes and also still owns a corvette. While Audra and I would visit my family every year for Passover in NC, he would let us drive his 2001 Convertible so that we didn’t have to rent a car. We would always joke and pretend each year what it would be like driving it here in Colorado. I never thought I’d actually own it for myself. In February of 2019, while talking on the phone, he mentioned he was selling it. I told him I wanted to buy it. After calling him back the next day to let him know I wasn’t joking, we worked on a price and how to ship it here from NC. On March 8th, 2019 it was delivered to our house and the rest is corvette history!

My Corvette Story

My Ex and I inherited a 1982 Corvette from her father’s estate (along with 3 other trucks).  When I retired from Jeffco schools I wanted another, newer Corvette. I thought 2 in the garage would be awesome. So after about a year of research & shopping around I found my 2009 Blade Silver coupe LT4 with Z51 package in Fort Worth. My daughter and I flew down to look it over, decided it was just what I was looking for, bought it and drove it home.

My Story

Born & raised in the Denver area. Throughout High School (Westminster “76”), I worked at the “Scotchman motor restaurant” at 50th & Federal Blvd. Just being there, working, and I was hooked on cars. After graduating I started in the Auto Body & Paint field and over the next 9 years I worked at a wide variety of shops from the “in by 9 out by 5” shops to the full custom restoration and paint places. I decided painting cars would be a great hobby and it was time to find another vocation. I worked at Jeffco Schools for 26 years, then retired.

Skills

Working at the Scotchman I learned how to cook. I’ve spent many years finding and fixing many cars, auto body, paint and mechanical. The older I get it seems to take longer to get the latest project done. Working at the schools doing custodial and building maintenance, lawn care and snow removal.

Hobbies/Special Interests

When I was working at an auto body shop in early 1977, one of the shag boys came in (he was from Ohio and going to Denver Automotive and Diesel College), and fanned out about 15 tickets to the Indy 500. He asked “Who wants to go?” Oh yeah, what an experience!!!  I started going every year from 1977 to 1997. I missed only the 1982 race. But I went twice in 1985 because the first weekend was rained out. Over the years I learned a lot of the ins and outs of the track and race. Getting tons of photos in the garages and hounding autographs. What a Blast!!

Auto Body and Paint as above.

Going to car shows to see what’s new & talk to people about what they’ve done to their cars. 

I’m on a weekly Bowling league.

Coin collecting and Elongated coins.

Andy W.

1966 Corvette Coupe, L79 (327ci/350hp) 4-speed
My Corvette Story

Andy has loved cars his entire life, and has owned Mustangs, GTOs, Camaros, and now, Corvettes.  Andy’s first Corvette was a Jetstream Blue 2010 Grand Sport purchased in 2012 as a graduation celebration.  The C2 has always been a favorite body style, and it was about 6 years later that the Grand Sport was sold and the search began for a classic Corvette.  Andy’s 1966 Corvette Coupe was waiting for him just outside of Detroit, Michigan.  It is an L79 (327ci/350hp) 4-speed.  At some point in its life, a previous owner added a 1967 big block Stinger hood to the car.  Andy found the Colorado Corvette Club in 2019. He really enjoyed the people and felt like the mission of the club was a great fit.

My Story

Andy was born in Indiana and his family relocated to Colorado in the early 70’s for his father’s job. Andy currently lives in Brighton with a blind Siamese cat named Shayla.

Skills

Andy is a software engineer working for a healthcare IT company.  He’s worked a variety of technical jobs and has been in healthcare and IT for 30 years.
