Miami Valley July Chapter Meeting

July’s Membership meeting will be held on FRIDAY, July 15th in conjunction with the VOSS Auto Cruise-In at their location on 99 Loop Rd. The Cruise starts at 5:00pm and goes until 9:00pm. For those of you that attended VOSS’s inaugural Cruise-In in June it was a rousing success with 300 cars in attendance. Our own MVNCRS member, Ron Smith, was instrumental in planning & running this event for VOSS who is always very supportive of our NCRS chapter so let’s show our support of THEM. There previously was and will be a separate Corvette parking area so grab your chairs and come on out for a fun evening. Food & drinks will be available on site for purchase by participants. See you there!



Miami Valley August Chapter Meeting

The August Membership meeting will be held on Tuesday, August 9th starting at 6:30pm. It is at private-collector Jon Kocara’s home/garage located at 1342 Graceland; Fairborn OH 45324. Food & beverages will be provided and be sure to bring your chairs. When you arrive at this home there is a driveway that goes around the back with plenty of parking on the grass so you can pull in there.

John has an eclectic collection of cars but is especially a Pontiac man. He even has a prototype VOE 1970 GTO that has electrically-operated exhaust cutouts direct from Pontiac itself. In the past, as you were proceeding North on I-675 you may by chance have let your eyes wander to the left to see a nice home that had two 2-car garage doors entering the basement of the home and wondered who owned that house? Well, wonder no more, it is John’s. His front garage has two 2-car doors and the bays are 2-1/2 cars deep as well as the basement garage is also 2-cars deep. So he can comfortably keep 16 cars in his home garage. If you are looking to add on or build you dream house/garage you might want to chat with John as he designed and built this house. It hopefully will be a nice evening where we can sit in the back and enjoy some camaraderie and food. See you there!
