[GALLERY] Midyear Monday! (31 Corvette photos)


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.

What’s your favorite Corvette in this week’s gallery? Let us know and be sure to share this page on Twitter and Facebook.

Our friends at Jalopnik billed this video as being “two-steps away from doing the xXx car jump scene” a la Vin Diesel’s Triple xXx opening scene where he and red Corvette jumped of a bridge. In this video from GoPro’s official youtube channel, the Corvette never leaves the ground but the same can’t be said about GoPro extreme athlete Quentin Luçon who hitched a ride in the yellow C6 Corvette before throwing himself off a bridge.
