"She is now a trophy winner," said Bill Ambuter of Austintown concerning his 1987 Corvette C-4, Z-52.

Ambuter said he just bought the car a year ago and shortly after he joined the Mahoning Valley Corvette Club. When he bought the car, it had a blown engine. He had a new engine put in it and put his rare find on the road for fun.

As a member of the MVCC, he attends a lot of National Council of Corvette Clubs (NCCC) events. Each sanctioned event he shows up at earns him points. Once he reaches 200 points he is listed in the 200 club and gets recognition and a T-shirt. The only way to gain points is by entering the car shows. It was at the Elyria car show on June 10 that Ambuter won his first trophy for his vintage Corvette.

He said the car is fun to drive too. The furthest he drove it was to Florida.

"I represented the club (MVCC) in Florida," he said.

He will likely be among the many Corvette owners who show up at Greenwood Chevrolet's "Hummer Building" on July 22 when the club hosts its own NCCC sanctioned event. The show will be open for Corvettes and any other vintage machines that show up.
