Another edition of the Corvettes at Carlisle show has come and gone. Despite the in-climate weather, this show remains a must-attend as there is just so much see and do. In fact, I’d say that a day at Corvettes at Carlisle in the falling rain beats a day sitting behind a desk anytime!
At Corvettes at Carlisle, we walked and walked and walked some more. From the swap meet to the sales corral, from the Chevy Engineers tent on the Manufacturer’s Midway with the new Corvette Z06 to sitting up on the hill with friends and looking at all the remarkable Corvettes parked row after row, we saw it all.
And thanks to our camera, you can catch a glimpse of one of America’s premiere Corvette shows in the gallery below.
During the Corvettes at Carlisle weekend, a number of people in the hobby ranging from media types like myself, members of the GM Corvette Team and selected Corvette vendors are given VIP status and sent out to the show field to pick a Corvette for the celebrity choice award. Winning a Celebrity Choice Award for an attendee is a big deal as not only does the winner receive an award, he gets to drive in the Celebrity Choice Parade by the Grandstands on Sunday.
It’s a huge responsibility and one we take serious here at CorvetteBlogger. For this year’s salute to Corvettes at Carlisle’s co-founder Chip Miller, we selected the white 1967 Corvette Sting Ray Convertible owned by Dennis King as Keith’s Choice Award for 2014.
The show is a target rich environment for midyear lovers. C2 Corvettes were everywhere but still a rare enough sighting so that you were excited with each one viewed.
The 20th Annual Woodward Dream Cruise turned into a nightmare for a couple from Rochester Hills, Michigan.
Gordon and Arlene Ondrisek were enjoying the annual Dream Cruise with friends the way they have for years when they decided to take a break and get some grub at the Pita Café in downtown Birmingham, Michigan on Saturday.
We’ve seen all kinds of road tests with the 2014 Corvette Stingray going head to head with many other competitors over the past few months.
Today, though, we take a step back into the past with Motor Trend’s Head 2 Head, hosted by Jonny Lieberman, senior features editor at the magazine.
He puts a 1967 Corvette with a 427 V8 against a 1968 Porsche 911L with a 2.0-liter flat-six.
We spent last Saturday with over 1 million of our closest friends at the famous Woodward Dream Cruise. The event is billed as the largest one-day car event in the world as 1 – 1.5 million people and 40,000 or so collector cars descend on historic Woodward Avenue in metro Detroit each year on the 3rd Saturday in August.
On Wednesday we participated in yet another edition of the annual Corvettes on Woodward charity food drive. Hundreds of Corvettes gathered to support the Open Hands Food Pantry in Royal Oak, MI. Each year the get together takes place on the Wednesday night prior to the Woodward Dream Cruise and has developed into the main event in what is now a 3-day celebration of Corvette and cars in general.
