[PIC] The Corvette American Flag Flies Again at Corvettes at Carlisle

Today at Corvettes at Carlisle, the giant hill that usually is home to Corvette club parking was instead awash in a sea of Red, White and Blue Corvettes as Corvettes at Carlisle replicated one of their most well known displays – the Corvette American Flag.

A total of 156 Corvettes were used to make the American Flag. Seven rows of red Corvettes alternated with six rows of white Corvettes while 35 Corvettes made up the blue sea with white balloons simulating the stars. A pole of silver Corvettes anchors the flag while two gold Corvettes do service as the Eagles on top of the pole.

Nothing like a Corvette parade to end a fantastic weekend at the Corvettes at Carlisle show. We thought the weather might keep many away but in the end turnout was good from Corvette owners who drove from the fairgrounds as well as Carlisle’s residents who line the streets to watch them.

[PICS] The 2014 Corvettes at Carlisle Show

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.

[VIDEO] Corvette Seller Mike Furman and Friends at Corvettes at Carlisle

While at the Corvettes at Carlisle show last weekend, we spoke with several sponsors of CorvetteBlogger to get their latest news and to see what we can do to help spread the word to our readers.

Little did I know that three of them were working in cahoots to cross promote each other’s offerings at the show and elsewhere. national Corvette sales guru Mike Furman, who singlehandedly sold an estimated 450 Corvette Stingrays during their inaugural year, shares the details in this video interview from Carlisle.

[VIDEO] 1967 Corvette Selected for Keith's Choice Award at Corvettes at Carlisle

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.

[VIDEO] The Burnout Contest at the 2014 Corvettes at Carlisle

One of our favorite events at Corvettes at Carlisle is the Friday afternoon burnout contest. You’re never quite sure who’s going to show up and once the tires start spinning, anything can happen. This year’s event did not disappoint with three contestants in two white C4s and one custom C5 Corvette plus a demonstration from the father-daughter team of Lance and Ella Miller.
