Our friends at ProTeam Corvette Sales will be hosting an all-day Corvette seminar and judging school on Saturday November 10th. The event is sponsored by the Michigan and Heart of Ohio chapters of the National Corvette Restorers Society (NCRS), although NCRS membership isn’t required to attend the event. The cost is just $10 at the door which includes breakfast and lunch. Enthusiasts under 35 years of age get in free.
The informative event will include presentations by well-known Corvette enthusiasts, engineers, and Hall of Famers.
