Corvettes at Carlisle With Mr. John Meyer

I love going to Corvettes at Carlisle, but the only problem are the "Meyer Corvette Girls" or "MCGs" as they are known in Carlisle, PA.  They follow John around the entire time and it makes it difficult to see the Corvettes, but I have grown used to it over the years :-)   Next year will be very interesting with the introduction of the C7 Corvette at the Detroit Auto Show in early 2013.

This is the year of John's 50th birthday and this was also the 50 year anniversary of the 1962 Corvette.  Below is John in the 1962 50 Year Anniversary Tent that was also known as the "Happy 50th Birthday John Meyer Tent" by the MCGs.

Below is John and me in front of the C6R.

Black and red are classic Corvette color combinations.

Above is the C6R Corvette race car.

Above is the clear opening showing the supercharger on the 638hp ZR1 $125,000 Corvette.

Below is a movie of the ZR1 cutaway which I think is very cool.

Above and below is the famous #3 Corvette. 

Above is a 1961 Candy Apple Red Corvette.  Below are custom seats made of REAL STINGRAY skin in the middle!

Below are three cutaways of the ZR1.

Tim's First Day at JMU

We went out as a family to one of Tim's favorite restaurants Kobe's in Leesburg.

Below is Tim very happy to LEAVE Ashburn.

We took Tim to James Madison University (JMU) this past Tuesday.  Below Tim is THRILLED that mom and dad are driving him onto JMU's campus! :-)

We ate at Five Guys for lunch.

Above is JMU's main building with the bluestone rock.

I have seen prisoners on death row who looked happier than Tim in his new dorm room.  Julie said he was just sick of us and wanted us the hell out of there.

Above is Tim in front of Gifford Hall which is his dorm.
