Mid America Motorworks' Corvette Funfest 2016 to Celebrate 20th Anniversary of C5


Can you believe it’s been almost 20 years since the C5 Corvette was introduced?

This writer and his family were among the large crowd of enthusiasts who traveled to Bowling Green for the unveiling of the 1997 Corvette (No. 7853 still resides in my garage) on Jan. 6, 1997 at the National Corvette Museum.

Also on hand that day was Mid America Motorworks Chief Cheerleader Mike Yager, along with Corvette engineers and Chevrolet executives and lots of nosy enthusiasts eager to see the latest edition of America’s Sports Car.

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.
