Finnish Sharks!

Wow, I was really surprised to find out that there are so many vettes in Finland. It seems most of them are sharks too.

One thing I noticed was that it looks like the average Vette owner in Finland is younger than the average owner in the USA....just a casual observation on my part.

I like your web site and I really appreciate that you also have it in English. Please check out our web site at www.corvetteownersclubhouston.com, we are one of the newer clubs in Houston, Texas and have about 100 active members. If one of your club members would like to exchange a club T-shirt, let me know.

Charles

Hello Texas! Nice to have visitors from your side of the bond also!

Thanks for your comments! We do have a lot of sharks here and it might be true that average owner is younger than in USA. I do not know that for sure, but I have a feeling that it is so.

You have very nice club pages! I will link your site to our links in near future.

I'll be glad to exchange club T-shirt with you!

By the way, really great looking shark that you have!

Warm welcome Charles!

We should have our very own new T-shirts ready soon (we will open a e-store shortly), and the T-shirt exchange sounds like a plan!

Cool looking shark you've got there!

That really is a cool shark, I suppose that interior is at same level with exterior. WhAt kind of monster engine have you under hood, at least the hood looks mean

I bought the vette last year and have not updated the interior, it's about a 6 out of 10. The engine is a 383 stroker w/ a geared cam; I don't have the info on the cam specs with right now, but let's say it's a little more than 'mild'.

Hood is an L88 so it will accomodate the taller intake.

Here's a couple of pics of the engine bay. Also a pic of my '96 LT4.

Looks fine to me, and it is always nice to have more than one vette. Unfortunately I have only one vette now

Hi ccs96, It´s always nice to hear about other Corvette enthusiasts.
Your cars look Great!

I saw at your web site events "Brazos Ride".
Can you tell me more about your events on May.
It looks that I will be there in Houston TX on May on business trip.

Do you know any Classic car shows or "garage meetings" or any other happenigs or places where it be worth to go.
Greetings,
-Pete

Pete;

Too bad you won't be here in April for our Spring Car Show at the Sugarland Towne Square.
I missed the Brazos ride last year and I do not have details on it for this May. We should more information soon. I believe the ride goes south of Houston to the Brazos River Park for lunch and back country roads.

Be sure to let me know when you're coming to Houston and maybe we can get some vettes together for you.

Charles
