NASCARCorvette No. 211

Louis A. Groebner Jr.: 1939 - 2007

It's with great sadness that I write this tribute for Lou Groebner as Lou was a very special person and he was proof that it is not the cars that make our Corvette community so special, it is the people! The cars are what first drew us together as a magnet and now "the people" are primary and the cars are secondary.

We have Special Collections for our cars. We have Hall of Fames for our cars. We need more Hall of Fames for the special people who have done so much for the hobby... for you Uncle Lou!!

Having just returned from the Bloomington Gold show, I reflect back on the Special Collection, not the cars but the people we see each year.

Uncle Lou, you will be missed but you'll be in our hearts and memories as you were very special and so deserving of a spot near the door in the Special Collection of exceptional Corvette people.
