The KCAA Corvette Show at Superior Chevrolet was a good place to do some fantasy shopping
But alas, that is a dream for another time. So while I patiently await the windfall that will never come, I have to look at other peoples' Corvettes. And this weekend, there was no better place to do that than the Kansas City Corvette Association's (KCCA) annual show at Superior Chevrolet in Merriam, Kan.
There were several real standouts among this crowd. Of course, the star of the show had to be a silver 1963 Z06 coupe. These were essentially factory-built race cars, and came with a fuel-injected, 360-hp 327. They also had a beefier suspension and special, heavy-duty brakes. Only 199 of these were built in '63, and only a handful remain. They are among the most desirable and valuable Corvettes out there.
They were also showing off a few Camaros, including several appealing examples of the all-new convertible, and a couple of Callaway-altered versions with clear windows in the hood for viewing the shiny, polished superchargers.
If you are a fan of the Star Spangled Sports Car, there was no better place to be than Superior Chevrolet for the KCCA Corvette show. But if you weren't there, I've got you covered too. There are more than 100 pictures from the show in the slideshow below.
