After a one-year Covid hiatus, the NCRS Gallery returned to Corvettes at Carlisle. The display of award-winning Corvettes picked up right where it left off in 2019 inside their familiar jumbo white tent right next to building R.
The National Corvette Restorer’s Society (NCRS) Gallery at Carlisle is an invite-only display where owners can show off their award-winning Corvettes and help spread the word about the NCRS.
Each year the selection committee led by Frank Stech and Elaine Raisner chooses the best examples from each division and invites the cars to be displayed throughout the weekend.
Sadly, we lost Elaine in late 2019. In her honor, the 2021 NCRS Gallery featured some of Elaine’s favorite Corvettes. Among those was her prized 1999 convertible representing the 1997-2002 judging class. Her C5 was flanked on one side by flowers and a touching summary of her amazing life on the other.
The covered display showcased nearly all the NCRS’ various judging awards. The cars were staged in their traditional positions behind ropes with hoods and doors closed. Various NCRS members and the car owners greeted visitors and answered questions about the NCRS, its judging system, and its various awards. Attendees could also peruse examples of the NCRS’ many judging manuals. They also hold a small annual raffle to benefit the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Fund. At the end of the show, owners are presented a plaque to commemorate their experience.
Once again, a hat tip to the Delaware Valley chapter of the NCRS for putting together a fabulous display of great Corvettes. Including her car and dedicating the 20th NCRS Gallery to Elaine’s memory made this year’s display even more special than those prior. Congratulations to all the owners who were selected to display their Corvettes. Now, check out our gallery from the 2021 NCRS Gallery below.
