Steve Johnson ~ 2nd Vice President - Membership
East Region ~ Bel Air Corvette Club
Spouse:  Judi
Kids: 5 Daughters & 1 Son
Grandchildren: 4 grandsons, 3 are FCOA members
Corvettes: The first Corvette was a 1987 that really took a lot of hard work and effort to get ready for the road. I purchased it in 1998 from a former Marine who had gone into the Corvette repair business. I found an NCCC club in Annapolis, MD, and was introduced to many great people. The next Corvette was a 1994 Black Rose Metallic we purchased in 2003 and it has seen high and low speed autocross events, a trip to Bowling Green, laps at VIR & many miles of fun.
Favorite Vette Fun: High Speed Autocross events and People’s Choice events or just taking a ride along the back roads. I was introduced to autocross in 2007 and earned my high-speed license in 2009.
Steve says: Being an NCCC member and part of a great club is essential to enjoying your Corvette. You meet people who share the same passion about your interest in America’s sports car and no matter where you travel around the country you always have “Corvette friends.”

Favorite Vette Fun: Love it all! The parades, the competition, the trips. But no matter where we go or what we do, it is the people that make it special.
Kathy says: Remember where ever you go, what ever you do, there is an army of NCCC volunteers that made it happen. Thanks to all the silent hands that make our lifestyle possible.

Spouse: Mary
Kids:  Brian, Michelle, Jeff
Grandkids:  Cody and Ella
Corvettes:  1980 "old blew" 1981 original owner, 1991 every day driver
Favorite Vette Fun: The people. The cars. The events. The travel. The smiles.
This is a great way to spend the kid's inheritance. I also like to go fast and maybe I will someday.
Hal says: Corvettes are built like any car… an engine, some lights, a few tires, and a splash of pretty paint. They also come built with a special spirit, an attitude, and a tradition. We built everything but the car. I think we are doing a good job.

Jim Walton ~ Parliamentarian
Florida Region ~ Bay Area Corvette Club
Spouse: Claudine…..First met in 1969
Kids:  Jim Jr.
Corvettes:   The parade car in the picture below is a Red C6 Convertible and the race car is my tired old Blue ’80 Coupe. Old Blue has taken me to two Indiana Region Championships and a bunch of 1st place finishes at conventions.
Favorite Vette Fun:  Definitely not waxing, I love the competition events but haven’t been as active as I would like, just not enough hours in the day. I’ve always been a gear head and enjoy being around other gear heads in NCCC. Love driving fast and consider speed limits to be advisories.
Jim says:  Life is short; try to make the most of each day; have fun. Most of the issues that we get upset about will fail the 100 year, the 1 year and even the one week test; in other words they are just not worth the time and emotion. What is important is Family, Friends and Country with a huge helping of God in our daily life.
