While it wasn’t a “Corvette” car show specifically, for our Corvette Report readers I loaded the Corvette images up front. There was a very NICE selection of Corvettes, including Mary Carol Plott’s pristine 1971 Corvette, Bill Test’s Silver Green 1982 coupe and we spotted a Laguna Blue Tricoat 2015 Z06 with all the extra Z07 goodies. Shweet!
Here’s the video slide show…
