Finally made it!

That’s what we have to say after making the pilgrimage this year to Effingham, IL for the 21st Annual Corvette FunFest put on by Mike Yager and the great folks at Mid America Motorworks.

The theme for this year’s FunFest was “Vets with Vettes” and so not only was it great to see all the Corvettes out in the fields but to have the opportunity to talk with our nation’s veterans and see all the patriotic displays including the traveling Vietnam Veteran’s wall memorial was something we’ll never forget.
