It is that time again for the mega car event called the Monterey Car Week & Concours D’elegance. It runs from August 12th thru the 22nd this year.

The event dates back over half a century, where only 200 of the best collector cars in the world roll onto the legendary 18th fairway of Pebble Beach Golf Links to be shown and compete. Only a handful of these will receive official recognition for style, technical merit and historical accuracy.

But, the Concours is only the final event in a packed week celebrating the classic automobile! All over Monterey County, classic cars take to streets, golf courses, parks and the world-renowned Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, surrounding visitors with automobiles from today and yesteryear.

This Weeks Owners’ Corner

Gordon’s 1,000,000 mile Corvette goal.

When you hear of ultra-high mile daily driver’s, names like Toyota, Honda and Volvo, are usually the first that you’d think of. Corvette, on the other hand isn’t a car that would immediately come to mind for that purpose. Not that Corvettes aren’t an excellent and exciting mode of daily transport. They definitely are! It’s just that Corvette owners tend to drive their cars shorter distances or for fun weekend get-a-ways. 

However, there are exceptions to that rule! We think Gordon and his ’90 Red Corvette Coupe deserves recognition as possibly one of the highest mile Corvettes still on the road! Who says a Corvette isn’t a reliable daily driver? Well Gordon Fong surely doesn’t! He purchased this 1990 almost new in 1990 with just 15k miles on the odometer. Since then he’s managed to only rack up an additional 700k more miles! He’s even driven it across country and back! What’s the secret to keeping this Vette on the road? Well, it’s not really a secret. Just change the oil every 5k miles. Gordon has been taking his car to Corvette Mike for oil changes and regular maintenance for about as long as he’s owned it! And his diligent caretaking has paid off with more than 3/4 of a million miles!

some random thoughts

Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

The only time a woman really succeeds in changing a man is when he is a baby.

Always borrow money from a pessimist. He won’t expect it back.
