1933 – 2017

It is with great sadness to report the passing of Noland Adams lifetime Corvette aficionado and author.  We had the pleasure of Noland attending as our special guest Flight 2000. He will be sadly missed by the Corvette community. He leaves behind a legacy that can never be filled. He will be sadly missed.


Sad news indeed, a great guy. So pleased I got to meet him back in 2000.

What sad news. I asked after him on the Solid Axle club stand at the Florida meet last week and was told that he was not in good health.
A sad loss to the C1 community.
Rest in peace Noland.

It is sad to here of the passing of Nolan, as with anyone and unfortunately we never got to meet. The corvette community will miss his vast input. One does have to realise as well, that this is the new reality for the Ncrs. The age profile is like us all…………Older. We will all pass before our cars.

It is with great sadness to report the passing long term Chapter member and dear friend David.
As you may know David has been suffering from ill health for a number of years.
Over the many years David had a huge amount of Corvettes, from a stunning 1982 Collectors Edition to a ’63 split window. This was followed by a series of C5’s including a new 2003 Anniversary and then a C6 Z06 and finally a C5 Z06 Le Mans Edition. David was a keen chapter member and always wanted to attend and especially to judge Mid Years.
He will be sadly missed.

Very sad news. Rest in peace Dave.
Tom Moss

Sorry to hear this sad news .Dave was always very friendly and unassuming. He’ll be OK in the big ‘garage in the sky’.

Such sad news. David will most certainly be missed by all of his Chapter ‘buddy’s’ May you rest in peace my friend.

To a great friend!!! Cheers, David…
Jack Humphrey

I have been trying to think of what to say at the sad news of David’s passing.
All I can say is that although Rachel and I didn’t know him very well, (only through the chapter) is that he seemed a gentle man, quiet and very likeable. I know Rachel liked him, as he along with all the members she has met have made her very welcome and his presence will be solely missed.
We can only pass on our condolences to you and the chapter who knew him well.
Neal and Rachel

So sorry to hear about David, such a nice man and avid corvette enthusiast . He will be missed. Please express my sincere condolenses to his family regards Nick

It was with great sadness that I heard the news of Dave McMillan passing away, please pass on my sincere condolences to all Chapter members. Dave was a true Corvette enthusiast and Club member.

Letter from America…

   It has been a very busy fall/autumn  with lots of planning for future events and attending a couple or regional events in the the US.  We went to the Texas Chapter event which is always fun and they had a higher number of cars than last year as well as more attendees. The facility ,The Embassy Suites, in Frisco Texas has it’s own convention center attached which makes it very easy to have a good time and the food was great. I have to admit that the fish and chips were not nearly as good as the ones I enjoyed in London.
