New Changes to the Engineering Exhibit Area

 As part of the C5/C6 Birthday Bash, new changes that have been recently made to the Engineering
 exhibit area of the Museum were unveiled and presented. NCM Facilities Manager, Bob Hellmann along
 with the help and support of Ken Brown and Rodney Jurben – GM Engineering/Design staff members,
 created the display area that gives guests an educational in-depth look at the new C6 and its design.
 Cutaways of the interior, convertible top, console and head lamp, and a demonstration video and display
 of the magnetic ride feature bring to life the newly renovated area. More information on the newly
 designed Engineering area will be available in the upcoming issue of our Member Magazine –
 America’s Sports Car, or visit online event coverage at:

                               Boerne Corvette Car Show and Bluebonnet Run

                                                   April 17-18, 2004

Boerne is a small town in the heart of Hill Country in Texas approximately 50 miles northwest of San Antonio. It is a
wonderful town with a rich history and a population of 7000 residents. A beautiful river area, quaint downtown with
unique shops and a town square park are highlights of the town. Boerne has been host to several car shows over the past
year as car enthusiasts from San Antonio and the Hill Country enjoy coming to the area.

                                                                  The Car Show planned for this weekend included several
                                                                  cars from the Texas Corvette Association, a Corvette club
                                                                  in San Antonio, as well as other cars entered from around
                                                                  Texas. The car show included a large number of
                                                                  Corvettes from C-1’s to C-5’s, and other types of cars
                                                                  from antique’s to hot rods. Approximately 400 cars were
                                                                  entered in the show, mostly parked in and around the town
                                                                  square park, for viewers to enjoy.

                                                                  Five cars from CCT made plans to be in Boerne for this
                                                                  weekend’s activities. Ben and Billie Loflin acted as hosts
                                                                  since they own a second home in the town of Boerne.
                                                                  This worked out well as a central gathering and planning
                                                                  location for our group from CCT. Ben even had a
                                                                  dedicated “corvette wash area” that Carol Factor made use
of to wash their car, and ended up missing the photo shoot in
downtown Boerne! The other participants from CCT
included Dennis and Patti Bertwell, Mitch and Carol Factor,
James and Joanne Powdrill and Paul and Mary Wolter. Ben
and Billy went to Boerne on Thursday, Mitch and Carol and
James and Joanne went on Friday, and Dennis and Patti and
Paul and Mary went “early” on Saturday.

The Loflins, Factors and Powdrills met and had dinner
together Friday night at the Kendall Inn.

The Bertwells and Wolters met at 4:30 AM in south Ft.
Worth to begin our trip to the Boerne area. We had an easy
drive with two brief stops and made it to Ben and Billie’s
                                                                 house by shortly after 9:00 AM. There, we met up with the
                                                                 Factors and Powdrills, had some coffee and rolls, and
                                                                 planned our day’s activities.

                                                                 The men spent a good portion of the day looking at
                                                                 Corvette’s and various automobiles on display at the car
                                                                 show while the ladies spent time at the shops in Boerne.
                                                                 There were a large variety of cars and trucks on display.
                                                                 One of the most “unusual” cars was a rare 1911 Ford
                                                                 Model T Lizzy Runabout with a “Mother-in-Law” seat.
                                                                 (Can anyone guess where the seat was located?). We all
                                                                 met together for a nice lunch and after more car viewing in
                                                                 the afternoon, we went back to the Loflin home for a brief
                                                                 relaxation period. Later that afternoon, we went on a five-
                                                                 car caravan tour through the Boerne rural area with some

Saturday night, we drove our cars to dine at a restaurant in
Welfare, Texas (population 10). It was a fabulous meal and
great outdoor table setting near a garden. The tables were
set with linen table settings with Rose petals sprinkled
across the table. It was especially interesting watching Paul
get several glasses of water poured on his shoulder and arm
as the young table attendant lost control of the drink tray as
he was leaning over Paul’s back. But, it was just water, and
Paul was a good sport about it because it was his Birthday,
and in celebration for that day, the restaurant provided a full
chocolate birthday cake (Mary requested) brought to our
table for all 10 of us to share.

The next morning we met early at a Wal-mart parking lot in
Boerne for the gathering of Corvette’s planning to go on a
Bluebonnet Run and Picnic. Texas Corvette Association out of San Antonio sponsored the event and we had an
opportunity to meet some nice folks from that club who treated us with good hospitality. We truly enjoyed visiting with
the members and exchanging information.

                                                                  Thirty (30) cars, including five from CCT, were in the

                                                                  a half, we stopped at the LBJ Park in Stonewall for an
                                                                  outdoor cookout lunch. We saw several Bison and
                                                                  Longhorn Steer’s in the acreage surrounding the park and
                                                                  enjoyed a nice lunch including grilled hamburgers while we

                                                                  After lunch, we lined up the cars for a scenic drive through
                                                                  the Willow City Loop. This is one of the most beautiful

                                                                  when you add in the gorgeous view’s that were magnified
                                                                  by the wild flowers, it was fabulous. People who had been
                                                                  through the Willow City Loop during the spring before this
                                                                  year were commenting that this was the best year for
                                                      Bluebonnets ever with views and vistas like never seen
before. The route took us through a lot of private ranch land and we crossed 34 cattle crossings and went
through several clear water creek crossings. Most of the cars on the road trip were C5s, some C4s and two
nicely restored C2 midyear coupes accompanied us.

After that drive, it was time to say our goodbye to Ben
and Billie who stayed an extra day in Boerne. The
remaining four cars headed north toward the DFW
area in the mid-afternoon.

After a nice uneventful drive back to the area, we
made one final stop just south of Ft. Worth at a Red
Lobster Restaurant for dinner, after which we went
our separate ways home.

It was a fun weekend for the couples that had an
opportunity to participate doing what we like to do
most………drive a corvette, eat, see cars and shop.

                                   April 16, 2004 Membership Meeting
                              Friendly Chevrolet, Stemmons Freeway, Dallas

The meeting was called to order by club president, Joe Carrion, at 7:35 PM.

After a welcome, Joe introduced two visitors, Rod Stallings and Lou Jalbor representing the newly formed
Texas Chapter of Christian Rodders and Racing Association. They addressed an upcoming special event that
they wanted to make the CCT membership aware of occurring on May 1 st called a “Bear the Burden Run” with
the proceeds from the event going to a specific children’s home in the area. Brochures were made available to
CCT members at the meeting.

The club secretary read the minutes from the CCT Board Meeting held on Monday, April 12th.

Joe Carrion gave the Treasurers report in absence of the Treasurer who was out of town at the Boerne Corvette
Trip. They were approved as read.

Gary Frederick gave the Governor’s report and he described several upcoming races and autocross events
coming up in the near future. These can be found in the event calendar. He mentioned a new points system and
some of the results of past winners with very few points separating first and second place overall. The point of
this comment was to re-enforce the importance of the points for serious racers.

Mary Wolter made a membership report and mentioned that window flags, both U.S. and CCT, are available for
sale for our cars. Then, Mary described an upcoming charity event for the upcoming IRL race in June were we
were offered an opportunity to make up some “Welcome Baskets” for the 37 IRL drivers that will be
participating. She said that most of the basket contents would be donated so the club cost could be minimal,
however, we could include our club logo on the basket to get additional exposure at TMS. She asked if CCT
members would be interested in participating and got a positive response. Jackie Arbogast made a motion to
provide these welcome baskets with an expense not to exceed $500.00. Patty Callander seconded the motion
and after a brief discussion, the motion was voted on and passed by the membership.

There was no NCM update available, as James Powdrill was also in Boerne.

The Activity Report was made and a schedule of upcoming events is posted in the events calendar.

Old Business –
      - An updated version of the new web site can be seen online at
HTTP://corvettecluboftexasorg.readyhosting.com

       -   Verification was made that we now have a parking spot for the club trailer at Paul and Mary
           Wolter’s property in Everman, TX and that the trailer needed some maintenance and clean up.

New Business –
     - CCT Roundup coming October 9-10. We need more participation from members than we have had
         in past years. Carol Factor is the Roundup Chairperson and will be looking for volunteers to be on
         support and work committees soon.
     - The CCT club secretary has resigned effective with this meeting. Joe Carrion asked for nominations
         or a volunteer until we could find a replacement but got neither.
     - A discussion from a member regarding how we can get more members and participation was held.
         A suggestion was to discuss this at the next Board Meeting. Also suggested that we conduct more
         club activities specifically designed for exposure for the club. (Homecoming parades, car shows
                                                       7                                             Corvetter
       -   where we can participate and hang our banner, etc.) Also more members want business cards to pass
           out to perspective guests.
       -   Donna and Marvin Snyder reported that they accepted a medallion from the NCCC Awards Banquet
           on behalf of CCT. Donna said that CCT members should participate more in all functions sponsored
           by NCCC throughout the region. She said it is hard to ask other clubs to join our Autocross event
           when we do not send people to participate in their events.

The Raffle was held by Jackie Arbogast for donate gifts.

Joe Carrion adjourned the meeting at 8:55 PM. The after meeting dinner was hosted by Gary and Donna
Frederick at Papasitos.

                             R700 Transmission Installation In My ‘78 Pace
                                                 Car
                                                   By Charles M. Whitaker
NOTE: The following article is in response to an email inquiry about installing an R700 transmission into a 1964 corvette. Several
years ago I remembered that CCT member Charles Whitaker had successfully installed an R700 transmission in his 1978 corvette, so I
forwarded the inquiry along to Charles, and he was nice enough to respond with the following advice.

Rick, - As Paul said, I replaced the 3-speed 350 automatic transmission in my 1978 Corvette Pace Car with a 700-R4
overdrive transmission and I can say that it improved the performance of my car immensely. The first gear is lower than
the one in the 3-speed automatic so it should get off the line quicker and the 0.7 overdrive improved the gasoline mileage
by 1.4X. At the time of the transmission change, I was getting 10 mpg regularly and after the change the mileage
increased to 14 mpg. Of course the increased gasoline mileage means that there is less heat in the engine because the
engine is burning less fuel and that makes the engine and passenger compartment cooler so the air conditioner works
better. The reduced rpm of the engine at cruise speed means less engine noise and vibration and I can, for the first time,
hear my exhaust as I drive and it sure makes a pretty sound! At 70 mph my engine rpm dropped from 3,500 to 2,350 as
read on the Corvette tachometer with a 3.55:1 rear end and P255/60R15 tires. Those numbers are not an exact 0.7 ratio
so either the 3,500 rpm is a little high or the 2,350 rpm is a little low. All in all it has been a very good experience, but it
was a lot of hard work and I mean a lot of hard work! I have read in the books that the 700R4 is actually lighter than my
old transmission so that is another advantage.

I don't know what technical information you have and I am not familiar with the specifications for a 64 roadster so I can't
give you specific information for your transmission change, but I will tell you about my experience. I purchased a late
mode 700R4 transmission from a junk yard and had it rebuilt by a professional transmission man who was a good friend
so the cost for the rebuilt transmission was limited to the price I paid for the core transmission ($350), cost of the parts
($329), and a $100 token rebuild fee. He specified the late model transmission because it would have the big pump shaft,
the updated internal hard parts, and something that I remember to be an extra servo in one of the rear corners of the
transmission. He rebuilt the transmission with a valve body modified for Corvette operation so it would stay in 4th gear
above 80 mph (I can't remember the exact speed) without downshifting. The other costs included the filler tube, dip stick,
TPI cable, transmission rubber mount, transmission fluid, and a $92 charge for shortening my drive shaft and new U-
joints at Drive Shaft King. I had to fabricate the cross member rear bracket (cut plate steel, bend, weld, and drill holes)
where the transmission mount attaches, remove and weld the parking brake pulley mount to clear the U-joint, and make a
shift cable mount that I made from a new Camero part that I modified to the 700-R4 pan bolt pattern. I had to reshape the
oil cooling lines since they go into the 700-R4 at a different
angle and I had to modify my dual exhaust pipes to clear the
rear corners of the transmission. Since I replaced the
exhaust system it was a little easier working with new clean
steel pipe and I dimpled both pipes at the rear corners of the
transmission. I did the removal and installation myself and it
required about a month of my time. Another friend who runs                                                                     a
transmission shop loaned me a handful of nylon speedometer
gears and I selected one using my GPS to calibrate the
speedometer. The total cost was $871, which includes an
exhaust pipe mount that fits between the transmission rubber
mount and the transmission that I also had to modify, but
that amount doesn't include the new exhaust system. I was
lucky in that the flex plate used with my 3-speed 350                               1978 Corvette Pace Car
automatic transmission fit the 700-R4 transmission torque
converter bolt pattern and I can't remember if that was
because they had the same hole pattern or if it had a second set of holes. I believe that it was the same hole pattern and if
you have the powerglide transmission they are different from the 700-R4. I used an article in a Hot Rod magazine for
some information about the exchange, but it wasn't extremely detailed. It did give the length to shorten the drive shaft and
that definitely helped. It didn't tell about the TPI cable, the cooling tubes, the exhaust system, or the parking brake cable.

If you have any questions that aren't internal to the transmission I will be glad to try to answer them; however, I am not
available to help you with the installation. I inserted a picture of my Corvette jus for fun and I hope you enjoy seeing it.
Good Luck!

                                    6:00 PM Saturday, May 8th, 2004
Paul and Mary Wolter are hosting an event for the Corvette Club of Texas and Cowtown Vettes members and
their friends on Saturday afternoon May 8th , 2004 to participate in the Laps for Charity at Texas Motor
Speedway.

We will meet at the TMS Lone Star Tower Condo 701 for dinner at 6:00 P.M. Everyone is requested to bring a
dish(s) to share and their own drinks. We will provide the meat.

You can drive your corvette (or your suburban, etc.) 3 laps around the track (following a TMS pace car) for
only $25.00. If the three laps are not enough for you or your spouse wants to drive, just get in line again and
another $25 will get you back on the track for another 3 laps. After your laps be sure to have your picture taken
with your corvette in the winner’s circle. The picture fee is $10.00. Your pictures will be ready that evening after a small
wait.

We will also be selling raffle tickets for $5.00 each for a chance to win free drives. The money collected will be used to
purchase the Speedway Children’s Charity Laps for the raffle ticket winners.

After you have finished your drive around the racetrack, you are all invited to come back up to the condo. You can
compare your driving experience with others while we eat, drink and watch the Vipers, Porsches, Camaros, trucks, limos,
etc go around the track!

                                  THE BOERNE CAR SHOW

                                                By Carol Factor

The trip to the Boerne Car Show the weekend of April 16th was a memorable experience! Mitch and I and
James and Joanne Powdrill arrived in Boerne and met our hosts, Ben and Billie Loflin at their home. We all
went out to dinner with the Loflin’s to the “Limestone Grill” in the Kendall Inn, which is also a very nice bed
and breakfast. The food was great and we enjoyed the small town ambiance.

Paul and Mary Wolter and Dennis and Patty Bertwell arrived early in Boerne on Saturday morning and we all
headed down town to the Car Show. The show was well attended and had over 200 cars entered. Of course, the
shopping in Boerne was entertaining too!

                                                        It rained lightly off and on that afternoon but not
                                                        enough to ruin the day being outside. By the time we
                                                        had dinner that night at the Welfare Café, it had cleared
                                                        off enough that sitting outside on the patio to have our
                                                        dinner was delightful and cool. What a great place!
                                                        Where else can you eat a gourmet dinner in the country
                                                        while watching the cows and goats roam the pasture
                                                        behind you.

                                                          The next morning, we headed to Wal-Mart and met up
                                                          with the San Antonio Corvette Club for the Bluebonnet
                                                          Run. We had no idea what a treat this was going to be!
                                                          We drove to LBJ State Park where the chef prepared
                                                          burgers for all of us. There were 36 Corvettes in our
                                                          caravan! Afterwards, we drove over to the famous
Willow City Loop traveling down many back roads and over more tha n 35 cattle guards. We arrived at the
breathtaking views of field after field of bluebonnets. I’ve never seen that many in one area. They say this year
was one of the “bluest” ever!

After taking in the scenery, we headed back for Dallas
that afternoon. I hope next year more of our club
members will mark their calendars so they can be sure to
go on the next hill country trip to Boerne. Many thanks
to Ben and Billie Loflin for hosting a wonderful trip!

          What Would Ever Make a ZO6 Owner Jealous of Non-ZO6 Owner?

                                         By Philip Schilt (The Young One)


Well, I have decided to take a stab at writing articles. I imagine both of my parents jaws are dropping since I
took the same English classes in College enough times they joke that English was my second language. I
decided to write some technical articles to share all the fun experiences I have had racing.

For this month I have chosen to write about my experience with Twilight Sentinel lights. The Twilight Sentinel
lights are the automatic lights which use a sensor to detect low light to automatically turn on the headlights.
This feature is not available on a ZO6. My first corvette was a 2001 Convertible loaded with every feature
including the Twilight Sentinel lights. Ever since, I bought the ZO6 I missed the feature. Call me lazy, but I
liked it. Early last year while surfing the corvetteforum.com (as I do too often my wife claims is “the other
woman”) a member had a write up with how to add them to a ZO6.

According to his instructions all that was needed was a Tech 2 to reprogram the BCM (Body Control Module)
adding in option T82 Twilight Sentinel Lights. So a quick trip to the dealer was in order I thought. Upon
reprogramming, low and behold there was the Twilight Sentinel option in the Options menu. I was excited it
worked and thought I had twilight sentinel lights. As I pulled away, I was under an overhang that was dark
enough to pop-up the lights, so I figured once I pulled away they would drop back down, boy was I wrong. So
now I had Twilight Sentinel lights that kept the headlights on all the time. Now I had a unique feature.

So, I pulled the codes (which I will write about how to do next month), and look it up and it says Ambient
Sensor Low Voltage. So I take it back in for service, and they are nice enough to look at it. After a day of
troubleshooting it we couldn’t figure out why it didn’t work and decide to unload the reprogram.

Once again I am without Twilight lights, and think the quest is over. Well some time goes by and next year
imagine this….. I was surfing the corvetteforum.com again, and see someone talking about adding them on a
ZO6 with step-by-step instructions.

The problem is believe it or not, starting in February 2002 Chevrolet may or may not have put the sensor in, but
left the wiring in place. Now for the $25,000 question! When do you think my car was produced? You guessed
it….. February 2002!

Furthermore, the sensor is only $12. Wow, I know I can handle that little inconvenience by using the loose
change lying in my desk drawer! So now I go to the dealership, and order part # 12450121 to install. The
installation is incredibly easy as well since the sensor installs in the defroster vent. After installing the sensor I
drive the “Now Twilight Sentinel Lights equipped vette” back to the dealership to hook up a tech 2 again and
try the reprogram.

This time it works like a champ, and I am now enjoying my laziness with my automatic lights. For further
information regarding the installation of this feature and adding low tire pressure sensors to a C5 refer to the
following website http://www.stopforce.com/RPO.html.

Thank you for taking the time to read this hope you enjoyed it because I look back now and find this quite
humorous, as well as typical Chevrolet…

                 and Prayers are with you all.....death is such a timely reminder for us all to
                 enjoy the moment of the day and the day's ahead. We are fortunate to have our
                 club family, our beautiful cars and the opportunity to enjoy both.

Our next charity event with the Speedway Children’s Charity will be May 8th from 6 to 10 PM. Information on
the event is provided in the flyer in this newsletter. We have also invited the Cowtown Vette Club members to
come play with us. Come out and participate in this unique experience that allows you to drive your corvette,
suburban, motorcycle, or family car 3 laps around the 1 ½ mile race track with 23 degrees of banking on the
turns. And most important….all funds donated are given to local metroplex charities benefiting children. In
2003 Speedway Children’s Charity raised $450,000 and gave it to 143 local charities at the Speedway
Christmas tree lighting ceremony the first Thursday in December. This will be repeated again in December
2004, and the event is open to the public.

I would like to thank Jackie Arbogast, Patty Callander, Gail Carrion, Jan Farrow and Joan Powdrill for
volunteering to be on the committee for getting over 40 Welcome Baskets together on behalf of the Speedway
Children’s Charity. We will be presenting the Welcome Baskets to 40 IRL Driver teams on June 10th. The
baskets will consist of donated items, plus a welcome note from Ft. Worth mayor Mike Moncrief and an
invitation to attend the October 14th , 2004 gala hosted by the Children’s Speedway Charity in the Speedway
Club. Bob and Paula Mischel have invited the club members to assemble the baskets Sunday afternoon, May
23rd at their new log cabin home in Granbury. See the flyer in the newsletter for the details. We will need all
the club members to help participate with the production process for this event.



                                        ACTIVITIES REPORT

Congratulation's go to Mel Roggenbuck, pilot/owner of white lightening, on a job well done in putting together
the poppy fest run this past weekend.

April was a busy month for the Corvette Club of Texas. Five of our magnificent corvettes left on a Friday,
April 23rd and headed for the quaint little community of George town, TX. We were undeterred by omnibus
looking thunderclouds and a national weather report indicating heavy rains were coming our way and expected
to continue thru Saturday with an 80% chance of occurrence. Also some heavy rains would be accompanied by
strong winds gusting to 35 miles per hour. We had every reason not to make this trip.

Our cars were sparkling as usual and we feel the same way about rain on our vehicles as we do about
fingerprints, both really pi-- us off. Don't touch!! However, this was for a worthwhile cause and we forged
ahead under less than desirable conditions. The longhorn corvette club was very appreciative of our 5 cars
being there.

While making the room reservations this year, Billie and I befriended "Doris" who is in the front office. She is a
ray of constant sunshine and is a delight to be around. I would guess her to be in her 60's or early 70's and she
loves people. She marveled about the corvettes in town and how beautiful they are and she always makes
arrangements to be off during the parade so she could go see them. Billie was driving our car again this year
and we invited "Doris" to join Billie as a passenger. We would take the top off so she would be as visible as
possible for her friends to see her and exchange waves. She was excited; she acted like she could not believe
this was happening to her. Unfortunately the weatherman was correct this time and the parade was cancelled.
In alpha order, the participants were Carl & Jackie Arbogast, Joe& Gail carrion, Be n & Billie Loflin, James &
Joann Powdrill and Mel with significant other [Nancy] Roggenbuck.

The cars were positioned for judging rain or shine on main street which had been blocked off. Out of CCT's 5
vehicles present for judging, 4 won awards. You know who spoiled a possible near perfect record, darn it !! My
                                                       19                                              Corvetter
beloved red corvette coupe is going to driven by a new owner, if I don't get on the stick and come up with some
wins. The weekend was a bitter/sweet experience. Joe's father passed away, Jackie got sick, Mel got sick and
Billie was not feeling good [walk softly]. On the plus side it was a great& fun time, lot's of happy folks, good
food, many shop's and vendors. Weather did not drop any hail and the reservations were not messed up, even
though I did handle them!

Remember!!! May the 8th. at TMS, the laps for charity.[ Paul and Mary handling the particulars…See the
flyer in this newsletter for event details.]

Also, very important! Bob and Paula Mischel are planning a drive and eat in Granbury on May 23rd
along with preparation of baskets for the 40 IRL drivers in the June 2004 TMS race. This to be done at
their new & beautiful log home.[Bob & Paula handling particular's]
