Oldest... Yep, Jim is on the list... Not on much anymore but try to keep up with what's going on... Time passes so fast, things change, people's interest change... Friends are forever, even if you don't see them very much, when you get back together, it's just like yesterday.... I'll try and make a gathering when I can, no Vettes anymore, sold all 3..

I'm sure Biff appreciates you making that clarification, Adam...LOL LOL

It's nice to know that even the "old long timers" still at least check in every now and then, even if they don't actively post. I miss a lot of them, and wonder sometimes where they are, how they be doin, and stuff like that.....Disapprove

So...if YOU'RE an old....er...long timer on the above list, just reply to this thread with a "Howdy" or sumptin....up that post count with a non-tech post!! LOL Thumbs Up

HEY - I represent that remark...!!!  LOL

Sorry to hear you're "Vette-less".  That had to be tough to do.  Especially the '72 - that is a beautiful car.

Don't be a stranger!

Hi everyone! I still visit just about everyday, although I rarely post anymore. Since I'm a lifer, I try to keep up on the C3VR community. I sold both vettes two years ago. I miss them, but I really wasn't driving them much, so I sold them to folks I hope will enjoy them as much as I did. Nice to see membership over the millennium mark. As far as being old, I'll start drawing my SS benefits next month.

It's hard to believe all this time has passed by. Also hard to believe I'm the 2nd longest member here. I don't post much, but try to stop by when I have a chance. 

I really have enjoyed my time here. Made quite a few friends over the years and unfortunately have lost a couple dear friends to the big guy in the sky. 

Michele and I are looking forward to this years gathering and meeting up with old friends and making new ones. 

I'm really hoping I finish my vette for the gathering this year. Over the past 11 months, at my leisure I have been trying to complete the LS1 engine swap. I'm almost done, but I have discovered an issue with the wiring behind my fuse block today. Not looking good. So if it doesn't get completed in time, oh well theres always next time. It has always been about the people here, not just the cars.

I forgot to mention, the list is of people that are still a current member (Standard, Gold or Lifer) and have logged in at least once since 4/1/2014.  So there may be some before you, Sarge, that are still members but haven't logged in recently.

Good, I don't want to be oldest or 2nd oldest here. It makes me feel old. And when I feel old, I act old and grumpy. lol. Clown

When I read the title I thought I had a shot at it. I'm OLD.
I got my Corvette late in life, so I didn't join until I had my first (and still the only) Corvette and met Adam at Carlisle. 
Like many here, I try to get on a couple times a week to check things out. 

Hard to believe I am coming up on ten years here.

Glad to see I'm on the top 10 on  someone's list. I don't post much anymore , but I do visit. I had to update corvettes so I could commute to work 100 miles round trip. I bought a 2000

dark bowling green metallic and I love it. The '72 needs a new engine and you know how that goes.

It will be $5000 at least. I am thinking about selling it, but not sure yet. Kathy

I have to say, I never thought I see the day where you'd consider selling your C3.  (But, I guess if I sold mine, anything can happen!)

Well better late than never. I was pokin around here a saw this thread. Like some of you I don't post near as much as I used to. But seeing this thread got me thinkin about all the great times I've had with you all. I have had the pleasure of meeting a number of my friends here including most of you on this thread. I have a great memory of all of you. Yup including you boss. I remember the crazy times we had in the chat room. I remember the crazy fun times we've had at the gatherings. We have laughed together and cried together. I still get all teary eyed when I think of my great friends who are no longer with us. So I am blessed to call all of you family. And thanks for not only helping me build my dream but for your friendship. Miss yas and hopefully I won't stay away so long.

I am also guilty of checking in a lot and never posting I am guilty of going to the anything goes forum to read the jokes. I have no corvettes at this time, got to old, to fat, to sore, to drive them and lost my job a few years back and sold the badass 2004 (I REALLY MISS HER), didn't need to sell it but made the wife feel better having some cash in the frig so to speak, hell I drive a 2013 prius "C"

 I hardly ever hear from the northwest clan that was at one time pretty tight, sad how life messes things up. I was wonder what others are up to, even though I don't post I do care and think about all of you.

God bless and Happy Holiday's

All you folks are great friends that I never would have met if not for this forum, the Gatherings and the regional get togethers.
It nice to chat here, but the real enjoyment is face to face.
I hope when C3VR goes west in 2016 I will be able to see some of my "left" coast friends.
Looking forward to seeing all my northeast friends in July.

I met Adam and some of you at Effingham in 2008.  I have been a member ever since and I try to help out Adam when ever I can (Or he lets me!!).  Nothing better than a group of people coming together with one love!!  The Corvette!!  And meeting my first non-USA resident (Cindy) was a treat for me too!!

Hugs to all
