This was such a cool event at the 2019 Corvette Funfest and I’m so glad that I was actually able to capture it on video!
Following the Charity Dinner on Friday evening at the Tuscan Hills Winery which benefited St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, those Corvette owners who have done some aftermarket lighting on their rides turned them on once the sun went down.
There were 10 participants in the 3rd annual Corvette Light Show contest with three awards given for in the following categories: Best Dressed Trunk, Best Underhood Art, and Best Light Show. Even the awards were lit up in the dark:
One of the hottest new trends in automotive customization is the addition of LED lights that provide Corvette owners their own light show when they are on the roads after dark. Some chose just to light up there engine compartments, while others run the LED light strips both inside and outside their cars for maximum effect.
I’ve always had a thing for ambient lighting around the house and it’s great to see how enthusiasts are now outfitting their Corvettes with the new lighting kits.
Don’t worry, we won’t be dressing up our 1966 Corvette with LEDs anytime soon, however it I had a later model Corvette, it would be something definitely to consider. And for those C8 Corvette Stingray buyers, we imagine many will be wanting to show off their engine compartments.
Check out the walk-around video for yourselves:
Our friends at Mid America Motorworks have recognized the new trend in LED lighting and now have LED Kits and more featured in their Corvette parts and accessories catalog. You can see those visiting their website and in the search box type “LED kits” and you’ll see all they have to offer.
