Over the weekend we attended one of our favorite Florida shows, the NCRS Winter Regional at Lakeland’s Sun ‘N Fun. We’ll be doing a recap of the show with many photos, but since today is Monday and I have a camera card full of Midyears, we’re going to do a special NCRS Winter Regional Edition for our Midyear Monday photo gallery.

Many of the Corvettes you see here (especially those inside the airplane hanger) are the cream of the crop in terms of condition and originality. Those cars inside the hanger are there for Flight judging with the best cars receiving a Top Flight certificate. The rest were captured from the Corvette only parking lot as well as those for sale in the Corvette corral.
