Our 1997 Carmen Red Metallic C5 coupe was purchased by us from the original owner "Harry Turner" in Sydney in 2014.

Harry ordered the C5 with every option available, including manual transmission, from the Bowing Green Corvette factory and went to America to see it come off of the production line.
He first registered it in 1999 after completion on the right hand drive conversion by Corvette Clinic in Melbourne. Harry, an NCRS member, took it to all the Nationals by trailer including Perth up until our purchase.
The C5 Corvette proceeds two others we have owned. A red 1984 Cross Fire coupe, on which so much was learnt by pulling it apart and putting it back together, then a Ruby Red 1993 40th Anniversary Coupe, purchased in 2002 from the original owner, all of which were purchased to drive which is reinforced by the fact we have driven to most Corvette Nationals through our C4 and C5 ownership period.

Club runs and trips to the Nationals have enabled us to meet so many great likeminded owners as well as others who are interested in Corvettes and to find out more about them and even ownership in order they can be part of this iconic American marque.

Jenny and I have even driven from Adelaide specifically to be part of NCRS meeting events which is also an excuse to catch up with Jenny's family in Sydney as well as site seeing opportunities along the way like the Blue Mountains and a Temora Air Museum fly day.
This Corvette has been awarded many National event trophies throughout is life which is a great incentive to keep it looking its best. We wish the NCRS Australian Chapter great success for the future.
