Member Profile - Darrell & Connie Carver

Darrell & Connie Carver joined CVCC in 2005 after they purchased their new 2005 Victory Red C-6 coupe w/ Z-51 option.

Darrell is retired from ConocoPhillips and they live in Bartlesville. They have three children, all grown now. They have been married for 38+ years. Darrell's favorite pass time when not working on his Corvette is playing noontime basketball with the employees and retirees of ConocoPhillips at the downtown Bartlesville Gymnasium. Connie is involved in a ceramics group and enjoys being with her friends and children. Darrell also enjoys autocrossing his Corvette several times per year at local events.

Darrell and Connie are both involved with the local Bartlesville Salvation Army. Darrell has served on the Advisory Board of the Salvation Army for since 2004 and Connie serves with the Ladies Auxiliary. They both are also members of the Green Country Lions. Of course, they are also active members in the Caney Valley Corvette Club. Darrell is serving as the 2011 President. Of course he got the job because they missed the meeting when officers were selected! So beware, don't miss meetings or you will get nominated also!

When time permits, they enjoy taking RV and other trips around the country but are always glad to return to Bartlesville and their friends after a few weeks.

The picture below was taken and modified by a local photographer Andrew James. He takes five shots at different settings and uses HDR software to combine them for an effect that looks like a painting!

This picture of Darrell was taken in 2007 at the Corvettes on the Rockies Weekend trip.

This is Connie. She is really camera shy so you have to sneak up on her!

The interior has been upgraded with 2008 two tone seat covers, color matching panels, and gages added. Not shown are the harness bar and harness belts.
