Having been involved with the Corvette Club of Northern Delaware since 2003, our family has had the opportunity to attend many Corvette-related cruises, functions, and shows. Along the way, we've met hundreds of Corvette owners from across the country. We thoroughly enjoy the hobby and are continually pursuing ways to improve the car.

In 2005, our Greenwood was chosen to be in the Chip's Choice display at Carlisle. Needless to say, it was quite an honor to be featured there only a year after the original racers occupied the same spot.
