This month was an extra special meeting as we had several Guest in attendance from Peters Chevrolet. Peters has renewed as our primary sponsor for 2016 and also provided and additional donation for a great year of Corvette sales in 2015. Scott Peters presented these two checks to President John Pearce. John also presented Scott with a Plaque for the Clubs appreciation to Peters for all the Dealership has done for TOGCC this past year.

Terry’s Tech Page

The question is: Will a Level 1 Z06 Front splitter fit a base Stingray? And the answer is: Of Course it will!

 Especially if Terry Hawkins undertakes this upgrade. In Terrys own words: GM installs this splitter with metal rivets, but I used the same bumper cover screws and U-nuts that attach the bumper cover. (Less trouble if I ever need to remove or replace it.) You can reach all the screws from inside the bumper cover to attach a washer and nut, except for the two center holes. For those, use a plastic push in rivet. The rear holes on the new splitter use existing bumper holes, but you do have to drill extra holes to attach it on the leading edge. Terry Hawkins

If you would chose to make this enhance-ment to your Stingray, I be-lieve Terry has all the answers and would be glad to assist.

Feb 6,2016 It appears that there was about 24 folks made this trip. One of the better Cat Fish restau-rants in these parts. Sorry I missed it. Maybe next time. Dennis

The other day I was passing down memory lane, these are some of the sights I saw. I’ve been a member of TOGCC for some twelve or thirteen years. That is long enough to have a lot of memories. Didn’t really start taking pictures until about 2009 or so. Pictures help with the memories. Dennis
