Elke has loved Corvettes ever since she was young girl. While she attended UCLA, the owner of the business where she worked let her drive his 1978 C3. After that, she was hooked. She was determined that at some point in time, she would own her very own Corvette. Well, that dream came true when she ordered her Lemans Blue Coupe C6 in 2006. As it turned out, Tommy (her husband to be), who lived on the East Coast at that time, also had ordered a 2006 C6. Together, Elke and Tommy have owned five Corvettes. They joined the SCVCC in 2009. Elke first served on the board as VP in 2012 and is currently serving as the club’s Treasurer.
