[PICS] November Corvette Show Honors Vets

A special event for the veterans of the United States Armed Forces brought Corvettes and Vets together for the first annual Vettes for Veterans. This was a very humble show that offered a nice break from the major auto industry shows like the 2013 SEMA show — it almost every way, the Vettes for Veterans show on November 9th was the exact opposite of the major industry auto shows of 2013.

Across from the Carlsbad Outlets in California, quite the site could be seen in the TGI Friday’s parking lot. A large variety of Corvettes took over the venue and every generation of Corvette was there to impress.

This awesome display of evolution featured a Corvette of every generation in one line. It’s amazing to see the beginning-to-current Corvette heritage all in one lineup like this.
