The FIRST Road tour of our season...

Bob & Sandy Weagant's Road Tour was a great success.

There were a total of 14 Cars, 22 members & significant others who joined in on this road tour. The tour started out with 9 cars from Farm Boy in Blossom Park and in Winchester we were joined by 5 more vehicles. The tour travelled through various communities in North Dundas then into South Dundas with a stop to see a private car collection in Morrisburg.  After that we continued on our way with a final destination of Cornwall for a fantastic meal and review of the quiz that is alway provided on a Weagant tour.

Thanks to the Weagants and the Mekkers, who assisted in the tour planning, for a great Sunday Drive. More Pictures

Club Wins Best Club Award at Ottawa Autorama Custom and Classic Car Show

The Capital Corvette Club recently won the best club award at the 2016 Ottawa Autorama Show (April 23 & 24). After a day of setting up the display and 2 show days, the club walked away with the award. The club entered 6 Corvette Stingrays into the show, three C7 and three C3. The display was well attended.

The judges in making their decision commented on the fact that the club members allowed visitors, especially the children, to experience the feel of sitting in a corvette and getting their pictures taken by parents and friends.

The President of the club, John Scapillati, accepted the award on behalf of the club. Club Member Graham Sinclair's son Alex, produced a club video while at the show (Video).   More Pictures

Corvette History: Sting Ray vs Stingray

The Capital Corvette Club contacted the GM Heritage Center/GM Media Archive as part of the research into the club’s theme (Stingrays) for the Ottawa AutoRama Classic and Custom Car Show being held at the EY Center later this month, on April 23 and 24, with regard to the official spelling of the Stingray. Here is the response form the lead archivist.

Common usage at GM is:

       Stingray for the 1959 race car show car

       Sting Ray for the 1963-1967 C2 models

       Stingray for the 1969-1975 C3 models

       Stingray for the 2014-current C7 models

The question you pose comes up from time to time. Period-specific documentation for the original Stingray Race Car (known internally as XP-87) shows the spelling in both forms (Stingray and Sting Ray) though the badging shows it as Stingray. Some of the confusion may come from the fact that despite only the “S” being capitalized, the 1959 Stingray badging shows a very slight space between Sting and ray.

For the introduction of the 1963 C2, Chevrolet standardized the usage of Sting Ray (two words, each capitalized) in sales literature, engineering documentation and press releases. The C3 debuted in 1968 without this moniker but it returned for the 1969 car, this time as a single word (evidenced by the new script badge). After 1975, Stingray disappeared for nearly 40 only to return with the introduction of the 2014 C7.

Having said all of this, we have no documentation internal documentation which discusses how and why the variants were chosen.
