"FLIGHTLESS HONOR FLIGHT ESCORT"
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 2019
WAS A TOTAL SUCCESS

Our Village Vettes Corvette Club members (pictured above) joined The Villages "Nomads" motorcycle club and the "American Legion Riders" motorcycle club to escort two buses of Veterans from Colony Cottage Recreation Center to the American Legion Post in Lady Lake. Thank you to Bob Kerfin, VVCC member and Nomad President, for inviting our club for the second year in a row. Depending on the time of the "count", we had well over 30 Corvettes from our club and as many motorcycles participate.
The route was Colony Cottage to 466A, to 441, and 466 to the American Legion post. Local law enforcement for each jurisdiction blocked every intersection to ensure the caravan was uninterrupted.

At the legion, Honor Flight "Flight Director" Liza Waters recognized each individual Veteran by name and thanked the Honor Flight staff, entertainers, volunteers, local law enforcement and escorts for their dedication and participation

06/29/19 Honor Flight Caravan

The Village Vettes Corvette Club was honored to have participated in the HONOR FLIGHT caravan from Colony Rec Center to the Legion post 347 (THE LARGEST POST IN THE NATION). The police escorts from Sumter, Lake, and Fruitland Park kept total control of the traffic situations. The NOMADS motorcycle club led the pack, followed by the VVCC followed by our Veterans. This was a "flightless" HONOR FLIGHT with a large majority of the participating Veterans in wheel chairs. In spite of the rainy weather everyone stood to honor these wonderful men. The playing of TAPS was especially moving with many in the room wiping tears away. Lamers buses allowed those veterans in need of assistance to enter and exit the buses easily. The wheelchair lifts are a work of art.

NEWS



IMPORTANT & URGENT
TECH INFO FOR 
C5 - C6 & C7 OWNERS WHO STORE THEIR CARS

If you store your C5, C6 or C7 Corvettes for the winter/summer or whenever, you should watch this video from Paul Koerner, a GM World Class Technician who can be found wrenching on Corvettes at Jackson Chevrolet in Middletown, CT.



In the video, Paul highlights Chevrolet engineering’s recommendations for storing C5, C6 and C7 Corvettes with only a quarter tank of gas. And to demonstrate why, Paul is showing a fuel system out of a 2014 Corvette with the emphasis on the fuel level module that includes the float, fuel sending unit, and fuel pump.

When you store your later model Corvette with a full tank of fuel, Paul shows how the sending unit sensor card contact point on the float would actually be submerged in fuel. That’s not an issue with normal driving because the sending unit float moving up and down helps keep the contacts clean. However, should it remain submerged over long storage periods, sulfur contaminants in the fuel can change the resistance of the sending card, causing issues with the fuel system.

The reason why most people were taught to fill up their tanks before a long-term storage would be to keep moisture out of the fuel tank. Paul then shows how the Corvette fuel system is a closed system designed to keep moisture out and that’s why you can store your Corvette with just a quarter tank of fuel.

Sulfur contaminated fuel level sensors due to storing Corvette with a full tank can happen and create huge expense, so do NOT STORE your C5/C6/C7 with more than a 1/4 tank of fuel. Let’s see why!!! 

As you may know, starting with the C5 Corvettes and continuing through C7, the Corvettes utilized a “saddle bag” design for the fuel tanks and you can see in the video what a pain it is to remove them. So take Paul’s advice and if you store your Corvette for an extended amount of time, make sure it only has a quarter tank of fuel!
