Getting It done at NCM MSP Team Nashville 4th of July

 

For The President:

 

Time Chasers

 A few months ago, we were wishing part of 2016 away hoping for winter to be gone, so we could do what we do best…drive our Corvette cruising or racing.  Except for the rare exception of a clear, crisp winter day, the Vette stayed in the garage and our “steel cars” got most of the use.

  Now it’s the Dog Days of Summer and we have so many events going on that we have trouble choosing which event to attend...The Car Shows, The Auto Crosses, or The Saturday Cruise to a fun destination.  The NCCC National Convention, Fun Fest or the Annual Touch of Gold Classic, our choices are endless.  Now we are two weeks away from the NCC Renewal Party and Picnic and seven weeks away from the Touch of Gold Car Show and our Christmas Party Team has selected a date and venue for our NCC Christmas Party.  Not to mention, we will begin nominations and elections of officers for 2017.

   Unless you are a teenager who is waiting to get their driver’s license or waiting to turn 21 (that time painfully drags by), times has flown by too fast.  It could be more like you go to sleep in January and you wake up in August.  Just today, Judy saw a big sale on the internet for Coach Purses and said these would make great Christmas presents.  Like a well-trained husband, I grunted in silent surrender but silently said, “its 100 degrees outside and your talking Christmas!?!”  Of course, I have diplomatic immunity until she reads the article.

 Changing Times 

As we progress thru life, there are very few things we can escape, like taxes, traffic, old age and the changing complexion of the automobile market.  Who would have thought a few years ago that we would have a new car manufacturer creating such an impact on the auto industry like Tesla?  Likewise, we all knew the auto industry was at over capacity and the term bail out affected us all.  The disappearance of brands like Pontiac, Oldsmobile, Saturn and Hummer vanished from the auto landscape.

    The continuous explosion of automobiles from the Asian and European markets forced the “Big 3” to re-focus on quality, fuel efficiency, design and the shifting tastes of young car buyers away from the domestic brands.  But the pressures of competition and the market shift have been healthy for the market.  The manufacturing migration from the rust belt to the sun belt as well as the fact that the Gen X and Millenials don’t drive the same vehicles as their parents are a direct result of this shift. 

   Now the internet has erupted with the news of the ZR1 (Zora) mid-engine Corvette and “Wowza”, what a looker.  Even my millennial son is excited about the new changes even though he owns a BMW and a Toyota, he also shares my excitement about the mid-engine change.  I can’t wait to see the finished product, after all, “nothing changes, until something changes,” and the Corvette is doing exactly that. 

         P.S…the first two mid-engine Corvettes for this region have already been ordered from a local dealership for two guys in Hendersonville sight unseen.
