[PICS] Canterbury Vette Fest

Article contributed by Steve Burns

It was a busy Father’s Day weekend here at CorvetteBlogger.com. We kicked off back to back car shows first by participating in the Canterbury Vette Fest held in Lake Orion, MI. This was the 7th annual event at this location hosted by the GMC Corvette Set club. Mother Nature and roughly 100 Corvettes made for a fantastic day on the grounds of Olde World Canterbury Village. Corvettes from all generations were sprinkled about the scenic streets, sidewalks, and green grass of the village. The event was free to spectators and raised over $3,000 dollars for the Leader Dogs for Blind. Check out some pics from the event after the jump.

[VIDEO] C4 Corvette Dragster from Down Under

[VIDEO] C4 Corvette Dragster from Down Under

Want to see what a 7 second quarter mile pull feels like? This C4 Corvette dragster hails from the Northern Territory of Australia and was recently seen at a drag strip in Perth. I particularly liked the flaming skull in front of the massive Chevy 510. It’s more Ghost Rider than Jake, but when you’re on one of the fastest C4 Corvettes ever built, it’s only the graphics on the rear that will be seen. Make sure you check out the video, especially around the 3:20 mark.

Corvettes on Craigslist: Los Homies Selling a 257K Mile 1984 Corvette

At one time, this 1984 Corvette was the pinnacle of automotive design. Introduced in 1983, the newly redesigned C4 Corvette took the world by storm. Over 51,000 coupes were produced with an MSRP of around $22,000. Unfortunately, time hasn’t been all that good for early C4 Corvettes as today you can find them pretty cheap. That brings us to this $3,000 White 1984 Corvette that is no doubt being used to class up the for sale inventory at Los Homies Auto Sales in Columbus, Ohio.
