Syracuse Corvette Club: A Club with a Cause

Recently Highlighted in 55 Plus Magazine for For Active Adults in Upstate New York

Thanks to Jim Ennis and Sandra Winkworth for once again extolling our members and bringing the efforts of our club to the forefront!

This is REALLY good news for our members from NCM Ambassador Dave Reeves

 

the National Corvette Museum has for some time offered one of the best and lowest-cost auto insurance programs for Corvette owners - but NYS Insurance Laws have not allowed them to write policies in New York State - UNTIL NOW. Please see explanation letter along with the "Request For Quote" form attached (no obligation). I believe our members may be very pleasantly surprised.

 

I would appreciate it if any of the members who request a quote and/or sign up for the NCM coverage would let me know, as I receive points toward my Master Ambassador status for each one . . . and again, there is no obligation. Why not contact them soon, and see how much you can save?

The Corvette Wave is an integral part of the mystique and culture of the Corvette owner experience. Corvette owners who wave at fellow Corvette owners when they pass on the road, show a mark of recognition that you are among the elite group of intelligent people who are driving America’s True Sports Car. And as a member of this elite group, you should be recognized for your poise and intelligence. So for those who don’t know the five simple Corvette Wave rules, here they are:

  1. There is no excuse for not waving at your fellow Corvette owner.
    Although most Corvette owners have the class and understanding to accept when their wave is not returned, not waving is a serious breach of proper Corvette etiquette.

  2. Whoever sees the other Corvette first, starts the wave.
    There isn’t any rule about who waves first. This is simple; if you see another Corvette, wave!

  3. Rules 1 and 2 apply to both sexes.
    As far as who starts the wave, it doesn’t make a difference if you are a man or woman. Rules 1 and 2 apply.

  4. Any type of wave is okay.
    Whether you shoot a big wave up through your open Vette top, out the window, or a quick salute with your hand on the steering wheel, any wave that can be seen by the other Corvette driver is okay. However, this does not include any style of gesture that can be interpreted as obscene or insulting. Remember, Corvette owners are a class act; while someone might have been rude or stupid to you, try not to return the favor. (This is a tough rule not to break with all the stupid drivers who manage to get a driver’s license.)

  5. A late wave is better than no wave.
    If you suddenly realize that a Corvette driver is passing and waving at you, get a wave off as soon as possible. The other Corvette driver may see your wave in their rear view mirror and realize that you where just a little late in getting your wave going. Although missing the timing of your wave is a “goof,” getting off a wave that the other Corvette driver has a chance to see can acceptably cover this slip-up.

Wave at your fellow Corvette owners, whoever they are, whenever you see them. This will show you are a person who understands the full measure and etiquette that comes with your proud ownership of a Corvette.
