I'm impressed - new member
« on: October 26, 2012, 09:03:59 PM »
I've been reading posts for the past several weeks I'm truly impressed with the level of knowledge and willingness to share that knowledge that I have witnessed here.

Iím an ineffective newbie here, have been active in the Corvette hobby for more years than I care to mention. Iíve owned other Chevy Bowtie products along the way a 67 Z28 (fender said 302), a 67 396/375 Camaro, a 66 327350 Nova, several Chevelles and a few other GM products, a GSX Stage 1, a 442 convertible that had those funny red plastic inner fenders, wonít mention the Fords or Mopars today.  Iím thinking/hoping that I might have something worth sharing with this forum too.

I live in Northeastern, Oklahoma; have for the better part of my life, worked at Ford Motor in the Engine Division for a short period of time, after graduating from college.

Most that are not using my name in vein simply call me Roy

For those of you who may not know Roy, he's one of the really "good guys" in the car hobby; he's also the NCRS National Judging Chairman, which keeps him busy taking care of 15,000 paying members and hundreds of nervous owners having their Corvettes judged every year at 40+ Chapter, 6 Regional, and the National Convention Judging Meets.  ;D

Welcome to our website, Roy. As an NCRS member myself, I definitely know your name and respect your knowledge and commitment to the hobby. I'd love to see some pics of your old '67 Z and 396/375 car, if that's possible.

Welcome, Roy! When I first discovered this site I was amazed at the knowledge too, and I continue to be. These guys are something else.

Unfortunately most of the cars Iíve owned were at the time transportation, never took many pictures, Iím extremely fortunate I grew up in the muscle car era and live in the performance car era. I do have some pictures Iíll try to dig some out, another member offered to help me post them.
