To the Members of Corvettes of PA, and to all our Corvette friends far and near, have a Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving.
What's New On the Web..?
C7 Viewing at Tom Henry Chevy--It was a cold blustery Saurday but several members braved the elements to inspect the C7 Corvette at Tom Henry Chevrolet. Tom and his sister Sue had a yellow coupe parked outside and a crystal red tint coat coupe inside for all to see. Tom was on-hand to greet visitors and answer questions, However, Sue, who was there earlier in the week, was out-of-town on Saturday. As predicted the wind increased and snow started to fall sending our members inside to "inspect" the red coupe further. Did you see Tom's personal 1964 Corvette convertible there. ? Would you believe he drove that 'Vette to college with studded snow tires ?.. and that is the original paint ? As the snow continued the members headed to Hoovers for dinner. Thanks to Tom and Sue for all their efforts in arranging this event. All agreed it was a great time. Photos of this event are in the PHOTOS Section.
Test Drive the C7 --We saw the first pictures of the New Corvette C7 in January when it was first unveiled. Some of us have seen the C7 up-close and even sat in one. But, don't you want to test drive the C7. Well. here goes. Position your mouse pointer on the MORE tab above, slide down to Members Only in the drop-down menu, then slide to the right to Test Drive. Click "Start Your Engines !" and enjoy !
The new section called "Remember When.." was added to the website on August 11, 2013, and the third edition is being published today, November 11, 2013.

Fall Leaf Tour 19 Oct 2013--Photos of the Fall Leaf Tour took a tour of their own around the internet, and finally arrived here, only a week late. Thanks to Amy Nedzelski for sharing her photos of this cruz and to Kaye Carr for several photos she sent, all of which are posted in the PHOTOS section. The weather was overcast, the leaves were not as brilliant as they could have been, the WV roads were great except for a slow moving truck, an unscheduled "pit stop" revised the return route, but the ribs at DeeJays were great,.. and the company even greater. A good time was had be all, even if some got wet on the way homee.
