President - Gary Ivan

  Gary fell in love with Corvettes as a kid, back when he sat in an early big block C3.  He bought his first Vette in 2005.   It was a silver '76 C3 coupe with a smoke interior.   He joined the club shortly thereafter.  2014 was a big year for Gary. He replaced his '76 with a 2008 C6 convertible and got married.

      Gary has served as Vice-President,  Governor and is currently serving his second term as President.  He and his wife, Barb enjoy all the events that the club has to offer, especially the road trips.

Vice President - Gary McIntrye

Gary's interest in Corvettes started in the late 60's when he traded his '65 GTO for a '66 Corvette convertible (a car he wishes he had kept!).  After college, he purchased a new '85 coupe which had so many problems he swore off Corvettes for awhile.  His interest returned in 2011 with the purchase of a 2004 coupe. Since that time he has collected several more cars representing the C3, C4, and C5 generations.

 

Gary is a retired mechanical engineer having worked for several different divisions of Dow Chemical for a total of 43 years. He and his partner, Debi Hawes joined the club in 2014 and have enjoyed the many cruises and social events.

Tim and his wife Millie joined the Corvette Club in September 2014.  Having an interest in joining a club, they looked at several different ones and found the Huron Valley Club members to be very friendly and welcoming.

Tim’s interest in cars started at a very young age.  His father owned several classic cars.  One of Tim’s first cars was a 1968 Pontiac GTO.

He worked for Gordon Food Service in Management and Marketing for many years, retiring in 2010.

Tim and Millie have three sons, sadly none have an interest in cars.

Ken (Canadian, eh?) met his wife Elizabeth (American) on a blind date in 1989 and they have been cruising together ever since. They drive a 2003 Z06 and it is their 3rd Vette. Ken has drag raced at 3 tracks and was once E.T. champ at the former Windsor Dragway.

 Membership Chairman - Jerry Morgan

I have always loved the looks of a Corvette and hoped to own one someday, especially when I saw the Mako shark concept Corvette at the Henry Ford museum.

When I was in the Navy one of my friends ,had a Corvette and we would occasionally go for a drive in it. That made me want one even more. Then in 1968 the Tigers made it to the World Series and I made myself a promise that if they won I would buy a new 1968,  yellow convertible. Of course they won so I had to keep that promise.

It only took 45 years to do it though, and only because my friend and club member Tom Stoner let me drive his C6 convertible. After that it is all history.


With Tom's help I found my car at a dealership in Ohio. So I went to Underwood Chevy in Clinton and talked to the salesman and had the car in a few days.
August 1 was the day I picked my car up from the dealership and happened to be the same day as the Brecon Village mini car show. Tom suggested that I stop by so that he could see my car, so I did and he surprised me with a birthday gift of my first years membership. Not only did I get my first Corvette that day but a lot of wonderful new friends.

 Officer at Large -Steve Sinclair

As many of us fell in love with the first Corvette many years before they were able to purchase one. My dream started in Chelsea Mi. at 13 years old! Many years passed until I felt the need to act on my own urge to get one of my own! Thanks to our own HVCC member Herb Helfen who let me drive his 2000 FRC  to the track to watch my son track his Subaru STI at Gingerman. During the drive I started thinking how much fun is this?

My mind was already processing how to afford and move money around and pick up my first Corvette a C4 in Red! Is there any other color?  After 6 years of rolling with my C4 I found a 2003 50 Anniversary Millennium Yellow Roadster that I currently enjoy!

I've come a long way since my dream of a Stingray Roadster was ignited in Chelsea. Some day maybe a Little C7 something? We all still have our dreams. Enjoying the ride together with the HVCC.
