Whew! That’s how we feel after a long but fun weekend at Corvette FunFest. How about we do a special Midyear Monday gallery dedicated to the 1963-1967 Corvettes we saw on the grounds of Mid America Motorworks in Effingham IL.
It’s time for another CorvetteBlogger Poll! This time we want to hear from those of you who’ve attended Corvette Funfest.
