The Family and Friends Corvette Club (FFC) started in 2005. Anthony Thomas and Archie Lee are the founding members.
They formed their own Corvette club after leaving a club with too many restrictions, and not enough driving. They wanted a club where other Corvette enthusiasts could gather, but most importantly where everyone’s input was appreciated. The goal was to promote an environment where “all are welcome”. They also encouraged each member to propose a "ghost run": That's where it's a surprise trip with our cars going somewhere nice, and where the "ghost" leader is the captain for that day. We can go sightseeing, have lunch or stay overnight, but riding together for pleasure is what's most important!
Since its inception, Corvette enthusiasts from all over northern California have joined us. From San Ramon, Vallejo, Sacramento, Fresno, Fairfield, Clovis, Elk Grove, Suisun, Martinez, Richmond, Hercules, Yuba City, Antioch, Oakland, Ceres, to Modesto.
Sure, we love to show our beautiful cars but FFC believes in giving back to our communities. Over the years we have been involved in many local charities in the northern California area.
Following is a short list of where we have contributed:
In conjunction with a gift giveaway at the beginning in 2005, we arranged a pizza party for all to enjoy. While at the event, a young lady left a heart-wrenching letter asking for help for her recently unemployed mother and 8 brothers and sisters, but asking nothing for herself. We were not only honored that she asked us, but very pleased to help each and every one of the family have a joyous Christmas.
Join us for our annual Corvette Car show and competition event, because we feature over 200 cars every year. Enjoy a huge raffle, live music, vendors, and a great time!
There’s much more that we have organized and participated in than what you have read here. It’s a joy to put our Corvettes on show, but it truly brings a deeper more heart-felt love to all our members when we participate in these special events of giving back!
For the upcoming months and years, we’ll look for more ways to support various organizations and community activities while
"Rollin' in the Fast Lane"!
