The 2015 edition of the Bloomington Gold Corvette show is just about 4 months away. This year the show will be making its highly anticipated debut at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. If you’re looking to have your car judged or just attend as a spectator now’s the time to get your place in line. Registration for this year’s show opened up on February 15th.
We received an email from a longtime reader who shared these photos of an informal gathering of Corvette owners. Five are driving the new C7 Corvette – three Z06s and two Stingrays. When adding up their combined horsepower it comes to 2,870!
Here’s the letter we received from Tony:
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.
The final slate of candidates for Bloomington Gold’s Great Hall was inducted at last month’s show in Champaign, ILL. Over the last five years, Bloomington Gold has honored 50 people and 50 Corvettes who have positively impacted our hobby. This year’s inductees mark the final year of the Great Hall.
The Great Hall’s intent is to salute the pioneers of our hobby – the people, organizations, and the cars that helped create the phenomenon we know and love today. It’s their passion and drive that helped build the hobby for all of us.
