Hello from KIM’S GOLD DUST

To those Dads reading this and to those Father figures that act like Dads, “Happy Father’s Day”.   Unfortunately, my dad did not participate in many of my school activities or interests while I was growing up.  As a farmer, he didn’t have the advantage of taking off work or stopping on the way from an office building.   He wasn’t in the house much at all but out in the fields doing his thing or else in the garage, repairing farm equipment or making hay wagons, etc.

One thing though that I learned from him was how to back a trailer.  For those of you interested, here’s how he taught me.   Put your right hand at 12 o’clock on the steering wheel.  If you want the trailer to go to the left, turn the steering wheel to the right.  If you want the trailer to go the right, you guessed it — turn the steering wheel to the left.  When you have your Corvette nestled in an enclosed trailer, you want to make sure you can get the trailer backed and maneuvered wherever you might need to get it.  And for that, I am thankful.

Earlier this year KIM’S GOLD DUST introduced the Vette Girl Collection – a pendant and earrings.  They were a big hit!  Now we are introducing a Vette Girl dangle charm for your Pandora or Pandora-like bracelet.   Do you have any requests for Vette Girl bracelets or other suggestions?   We’re always ready to hear your ideas.  Tell us what you would like to see!

The Drive It Pendant is now ready.  Sometimes, there are items that give us some trouble to perfect and this was one of those cases.   This new pendant has a C7 Corvette emblem identifying you as one of the Vette Girls and Yes, I Drive It!  This one is for those ladies who take ownership and have fun driving their pride and joy.  Yes, this is one pendant you’ll see me wearing when I’m cruising in Blue Jewel.

Men, we have a new C7 Corvette bracelet.  It comes in 8” or 9” and is high polished stainless steel.   Unfortunately, most of our men’s bracelets have been discontinued and with COVID still causing manufacturing issues, it’s been hard to find replacements.   This bracelet can be customized for any Corvette generation.

Keep watching the New Items page for future additions.

The C7 marks the first use of a “shape memory alloy wire” in a production vehicle.

To save weight (approximately 1.1 pounds) and reduce complexity, the C7 Corvette uses a smart material wire to operate a cabin vent in the cargo area that required a motorized actuator on previous models. Triggered by the opening of the hatch, heat generated by an electrical current similar to that of an interior courtesy lamp is used to contract a wire, thereby moving a lever that opens the vent, letting air escape to reduce cabin pressure and make shutting the lid easier. Once the hatch is closed, the current cuts off, the wire returns to its original shape, and a return spring closes the vent to maintain cabin temperature.

GM has earned 247 patents for smart materials such as this over five years of research and development, and it figures there are approximately 200 motorized systems in the typical vehicle that could be replaced with smart materials. Typically made of copper-aluminum-nickel or nickel-titanium, smart materials can change their shape, strength, and/or stiffness when acted upon by heat, stress, a magnetic field, or voltage, and return to their original shape when the trigger is deactivated.
