Third Annual Precision Alignment and Brake Customer Appreciation Day

March 16, 2019

Almost Saint Patrick’s Day!

We appreciate Scott Dittmer and Precision Brake for being such a great sponsor for COTV and we make an effort to do as much business as possible with him in return, taking both our Corvettes and our other vehicles for various services. Scott has started a new trend, by reversing things and having a Customer Appreciation Barbecue for COTV and the Drifters. He opens up his service area and brings in a major barbecue grill to provide hot dogs, hamburgers and all the drinks. The two clubs provide the side dishes and desserts, generally enough to feed all of Temecula. Scott also somehow finds enough “spare time” to make a number of items of “horseshoe art” and license-plate bird feeders to use as raffle prizes after the feeding frenzy is over.

Scott set up a number of hot rods and even Corvettes on display in the service area and had a beautiful Pantera there, which was started up periodically, to everyone’s delight. Various Corvettes and hot rods were arrayed in the front, side and back parking areas for everyone to look at. Our own Glenn was the DJ, as usual, and had his son, Mark, along to help set up the equipment. Skip arrived early to help out and went on an ice run. Daryl and Marilyn W. were enlisted to help get all the side dishes and desserts unwrapped and cut and managed to finish just before the hungry hordes stampeded over them.

COTV had a good turn-out. We were glad to see some faces we haven’t seen as much lately: John Olivas and Linda Wilson, Manny Macedo (hopefully recovered from his January health issues) and Bob Smith and Rose Streets. Other members in attendance included Leo Biller, the Crowthers (father and son), the DeMarcos, the Glenores, Dave Hellman, Skip Hipp, Jim Lokken, Mike Marty and Diane DeFigh, John McDermott, John Meyer, Bruce Mofford, Joe and Barbie Orsini, the Randalls, Mike Re, Marti Schoeman, Don Sforzini and his friend Diane Jensen, Chuck Sherman, the Sommars, the Stevens, the Thackwells, the Watsons, the Webers and the other Weber, Lisa, and Roger Johns.

At 2pm, the sale of raffle tickets ended and the calling of winning numbers began. Right off the bat, COTV had a winner with Glenn. This was followed by: Daryl (horseshoe sunburst), John Meyer (bird feeder), Linda Wilson/John Olivas (6 various items), Ted Carli (horseshoe art), Doug (another bird feeder), Marilyn G. (horseshoe dragonfly), Bruce (horseshoe cactus), and Barbie Orsini (horseshoe shamrock.) Then came the big prizes and COTV was a BIG winner. Doug and John Meyer each won a $150 gift certificate from Precision. The final winner was Joe Orsini who won the 50/50, a total of $152.00.

All in all it was a great day with great weather for a change, great food and great conversation with a group of like-minded, car-oriented folks. We want to send a GREAT BIG THANK YOU to Scott and Chris Dittmer and their staff for hosting such a fun event and also to the club representatives who did a lot of the work on our side.

Breakfast Time


Breakfast Social at the Rainbow Oaks Restaurant

March 7, 2019


The weather gave us a little break from heavy rain as we all headed down to Rainbow for breakfast together. Of course, by 8:30am, which is the COTV version of 9am, we already had a small crowd waiting for a table and the wait staff had to scramble to set things up. They took our 9am start time literally, imagine that!


We had a good group of 38 big appetites to match the big plates of food they serve at Rainbow Oaks. Many of us have been there for lunch or the Wednesday night prime rib dinner (think one dinner feeds two people!) and we all know how much food is crammed on your plate. Lots of wives will be relieved of dinner duty today.


Lana, sporting a lovely shorter hair look, brought her now familiar friend Cathy and Leo brought along a newer face. The rest of us wore our same old faces. As always, it was a social whirl as folks moved from table to table visiting with each other since it has been a whole week and a half since we were last together at the February MLR.

Also, as always, we thank Marilyn and Carol for putting together a great get-together with good food and good company.

Mystery Lunch Run

February 24, 2019

As Skip, the Master of Mystery himself, wrote on his secret direction sheet, today’s run was a “drive through green countryside.” After weeks of what seemed like horribly cold and wet weather (never mind the really horrible weather in the rest of the country!), the sun broke through and the shorts came out of the men’s closets again.

We moved our meeting place over slightly, still the same shopping center, but slightly away from Kohl’s so as not to block their customer parking. By the time we were ready for departure, the count was 32 cars and somewhere around 56-58 people. (Just as a reminder, please send your RSVP to the MLR host(s) since he/they have to work with the restaurants to fit in our large group and also our cars. If you have to cancel, please also let the host know. It is difficult to work with a constantly changing cast of characters!)

Let’s see who was there! We had real new first-time guests, George and Laura Hicks, who had heard about us from one of the members and were lucky to arrive just in time to tag along at the end of the group for the run. Chuck Sherman brought along a familiar co-pilot, his brunette daughter, Debbie. Marti Schoeman also brought along a familiar face, her brother-in-law, Patrick and even let him drive. Doug Glenore was busy with tax season, so Marilyn was accompanied by her grandson, Aaron, (their son Steve’s younger son) but he didn’t get to drive. Lynn Vara had a passenger in her new Traverse, their 4 year old foster daughter – she didn’t get to drive either. Bachelors included Skip, John Meyer who acted as his co-pilot, Dave Hellman, Jim Sommars, Bill Stedfield, Leo Biller, Jim Lokken and Don Sforzini, the last two in their orange cars. Norm Craig came without Ronette, but brought along Eric and Missy who have joined us several times in their burnt orange Corvette. We had a lot of orange this month!

The run itself was a nice undulating drive along Highway 79, through the greenery, with snow dusting the tops of the hills all around. The manager at Warner Springs likes seeing all our cars in the parking lot so we used their lovely bathrooms once again midway. Our foodie destination was not too much farther along. We just curved around the hills and then turned east on Highway 76 to The Round-Up Grill across from Lake Henshaw. Our group joined the motorcyclists and other car enthusiasts for choices from a large menu of sandwiches, burgers, Mexican, salads and barbecue.

Some tables were served earlier than others, so everyone left as they were finished and headed home on their own routes, either back the way we came or looping around the other way on 76 into Pala. What a great time was had by all – lots of smiles, hugs, jokes and plenty of food. Thanks, Skip, for planning our lovely ramble through the hills while they were still so green!

For Details, go to the Speed Ventures autocross page. Click on the link below.

TO Register for AUTOCROSS at Auto Club Speedway, GO HERE

First Select Your “Lap Time”. Since none of us have been on the Big Lot Course before, I’d go with 4-5 min. Seems like a long time for an Autocross, but who knows how long the course will be.

When you register, select SATURDAY, select the $99 option, tell them about your car, select a car number (don’t worry you won’t really need one which will be explained later) and select “I don’t want timing” (that’s what the pad and pen are for) and tell them if you wish to rent a helmet (bring your own if you can – who wants to wear someone else’s smelly helmet)

  1. Drivers under 18 must have a parent present and/or submit a signed waiver at registration. No passengers under 18 years of age are allowed. See their FAQ page for full details.
  2. You must have a Snell rated helmet (either Auto or Motorcycle) rated 2010 or newer. The preferred helmet is an SA rated helmet. If you do not have a helmet and cannot obtain or borrow one, please go back to step 6 to rent one from us. Don’t forget the Carte Blanche option which allows you to run in all the groups so you only have to take a break when you want to.

The regular option ($99) means this: the organizers will divide the drivers into two or more groups. If more drivers arrive during the day, other groups may be added. Lets say there are two run groups, A and B. A group lines up to run and the group runs one car after another for a half hour or so. Then B group lines up to run and the group runs one car after another for a half hour or so. This continues until lunch. After lunch the groups start where they left off until the day ends. the Carte Blanche ($169) option allows you to run in group A and then in group B and then in group A, and so on, until you drop from exhaustion. Personally, I’d go for the regular option.

01/27/2019 Mystery Lunch Run Hosted by Teresa & Simon Bleeker

It was a historical trip.
It Was a Mysterious Trip!


Mystery Lunch Run

January 27, 2019

Simon and Terry Bleeker treated us to what they had titled the “Historical/Haunted MLR” and also described as a loooong run (one of Jim Sommars’ favorite kind) to start off the new year of 2019. They had 35 cars send in RSVPs and someone counted 35 cars at Kohl’s at one point, so let’s agree that it was a healthy sized group of 35 cars and 60-70 COTV folks.

We had a real mix of old and new, guest and member. Don Sforzini brought along his BRAND NEW orange ZR-1 and his son, Brent, drove the not very old yellow C7R. That way there was room for Brent’s wife, Andrea, and their son Nick. So, a whole Sforzini Corvette Club of its own! Thank heavens Ronette Garduno takes time to provide us with the names of the many guests she and Captain Norm bring along. This time we had Swan, Eric and Darrel (so we had Darrel and Daryl and no Larry!) Mickey Diehl had her friend and frequent co-pilot Ellen along for the ride. Lana Jenkin brought along a familiar face, her friend Cathy, although she tried to fool us by having Cathy wear Keith’s name tag. Bill Watson brought his own designated driver, their oldest son, Wayne. Our newest new members, Joe and Barbie Orsini, were there with their beautiful 2005 blue convertible.

The first section of the run was the “historic” part. We paraded along Butterfield Stage to Murrieta Hot Springs to Winchester Rd/Hwy 79, through the actual little old part of Winchester, and onto 74 W into what used to be Romoland but is now part of Menifee. The old barn used to house the Motte Romo Farms produce market but now contains a mid-sized car collection, where we got to visit a 1931 Cadillac originally owned and restored by our own member, Bob Wells. There is also a very interesting exhibit of the history of the area and its agricultural beginnings in the upstairs section for those who might want to pay a return visit.

After a short break for coffee and donuts and a visit to the facilities, we all saddled up again and headed out for the longer drive to our lunch destination. Trying to keep 35 cars together on a straight road is difficult enough, but this route took us the “scenic” way through Perris and Lake Elsinore and we had to stop often to gather up the strays. Somewhere along this part, we lost some of the group, who decided that they had experienced enough fun for one day. We ended up at lunch with not quite 35 cars. As you might guess when Lake Elsinore comes into the conversation, we headed up and over the dreaded Ortega Highway to San Juan Capistrano. There is always a lot of Sunday traffic – sports cars and motorcycles abound and of course, today we added a bunch of Corvettes into the mix. As Glenn Crowther commented when we were finally at lunch, the drive was spectacular as the recent rains have made the hillsides very green. If you missed the ride you missed COTV’s sighting of the new mid-engine C8. Well, we think it was a C8 ,as it was heavily camouflaged.  

Our lunch destination was El Adobe de Capistrano on Camino Capistrano. The “haunted” part of the run was some of the history behind the restaurant and many COTV members checked out the small prison area, which is now used for a wine cellar. Terry had arranged for 3 lunch choices: a huge hamburger with all the fixings; a combination plate of enchilada and taco; or huevos rancheros. After a lot of food and plenty of conversation, the group split up to head home however they wanted. Some even chose to stay in San Juan for a pleasant Sunday walk around.

Thanks to Terry and Simon for a great start to the new year! Bravo!

@ Penfold’s Café & Bakery


Breakfast Social

January 16, 2019

Penfold’s Cafe & Bakery

COTV is sort of like the postal service but with better vehicles…neither rain nor fog nor bad traffic will deter us from our appointed duties, eating together as often as possible.  Amazingly, only 10 of the folks who had signed up let the bad weather deter them and their places were taken by some late minute additions.  All told there were 37 hungry, then happy, faces around the breakfast table.

The original plan was to eat on the covered patio, but Storm Watch 2019 made for a change to the warmth and comfort of the indoor dining room.  Doug and Marilyn Glenore were the first on-site, actually beating Bruce Mofford on this occasion.  Mike Re came without Denise who was either baby- or dog-sitting, but took home breakfast for her.  Marsue Page came without Steve, who was on the road to Scottsdale for the Barrett-Jackson auction.  A newish member, Joe Orsini, came without his wife who is not an early riser and seemed to enjoy the company.  The rest were the usual suspects.

Doug and Marilyn brought a couple of the club-specific stadium blankets they purchased for those going on the 25th Anniversary caravan to the National Corvette Museum and used one for a “show and sell.”  According to the Southwest Section e-News letter, COTV is the first club to place an order.  As you can see by Wes’ photo, the blanket is an attractive, large and warm souvenir.  If you think one would look good in your family room or car, just let Marilyn know and she will make sure you get it.  She is also finalizing plans for our visit to Nashville and on to New Orleans, so keep an eye on your emails.

Well, thanks as usual go to Marilyn and Carol or Carol and Marilyn for planning another filling and satisfying get-together. Our stomaches are already looking forward to the next one.

COTV Holiday Party

December 9, 2018

We certainly waved goodbye to the COTV year in great fashion at our annual holiday party. Fashion was the word of the evening as everyone was dressed in their holiday best (not the shorts, jeans and t-shirts we usually see at meetings and MLRs!) The Journey at Pechanga is a wonderful setting for us to show off how nice we can look and how well we can clean up. There were bow-ties, tuxedoes, fancy shoes, red dresses, sparkly tops and bottoms, holiday sweaters – you can see them all in the pictures taken by Curt, Harry and Rob. Try to recognize some of your old friends – like Joe Priebe and Bill Steed, who really look different without baseball caps.

Some of our newer members joined the festivities for the first year – Tom and Elle Ramsey, Mike and Brandi Moran, John and Barbara Rider, Roger and Lisa Johns, and Mike Marty with Diane DeFigh (he is not so new, but she is.) Chuck Sherman is beginning to make a nice habit of sharing COTV stuff with Jim and Diane’s friend, Jeanette.

Curt and Darlena carried on with the COTV tradition of planning a great party. We have found that Journey provides the perfect space for our large crowd and a pretty darn good meal as well. Dave Hellman bid everyone a farewell after several years on the Leadership Team. He says he will still be a member, even though he and Karen have moved to Carlsbad. He brought his daughter, Lindsay, to the party as poor Karen was en route back from a week on Maui. John and Jerri-Lynne Randall made a surprise announcement and presentation of the Moose to John and Lynne Vara, who we are sure will carry on the COTV Moose tradition in great style.

The entertainment was stellar and Ron Johnson did a great job of getting more people onto the dance floor than we have seen in many, many years. For those who stayed until the clock struck NINE (let’s face it, we are not as young as we used to be!), there were three lovely raffle baskets. They were won by Mike and Debbie Homan, Mike and Denise Re, and Randy and Angela Smith.

We wish all of our friends old and new the happiest of holiday seasons with their other friends and families. We know that we have lots of fun to look forward to with COTV in 2019 and so say – Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and see you in January.
