    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The unveiling of the 2014 Corvette Stingray had a special significance for many along the First Coast who have had a love affair with America's sports car since they were kids. Local Corvette enthusiasts came together back in 1975 to form the Jacksonville Corvette Club. Today the club's membership exceeds 170.

    Given how large the Jacksonville Corvette Club is, even when just a fraction of the membership travels together, it's quite a site. That was evident by the strong showing of Corvettes last Saturday at Automotive Addicts Cars and Coffee cruise-in, which was held at Whiskey River at the Markets of Town Center.

    Club member Tom Runck had his 1965 Corvette convertible on display. He's the fourth owner and has saved just about every piece of the car's history. "I even have the death certificate of the original owner of the car. It was purchased in (Philadelphia) Pennsylvania," said Runck.
