The Annual Corvette Enthusiast’s Twas the Night Before Christmas 2015

The Annual Corvette Enthusiasts Twas the Night Before Christmas 2015


Ever since we celebrated our first Christmas with our blog in 2005, we’ve posted a special Corvette version of Twas the Night Before Christmas.

Over the last few years, our friend Rick Tavel from Corvetted.com has taken the poem one step further by customizing it so that it references the major Corvette-related events that occurred throughout the year. Unfortunately, Rick has been very sick the last few months and has had to take time away to recuperate. Our prayers are with you, Rick. Get well!

Since this is our 10th anniversary, we’re bringing back the original poem as it was posted it on December 24, 2005. So gather up the children and take a seat next to the big block Vette out in the garage for our annual Corvette Enthusiast’s Night Before Christmas:

So what would you think if that little 1968 Corvette Hot Wheels creation suddenly came to life as a full-blown, able-to-be-parked-in-your-own-driveway model?

Well, dream no longer.
