Abandoned Corvettes at the annual Hooters Touch of Glass Corvette Show
I bring this up because this weekend, the Touch of Glass Corvette Club hosted a Corvette show at the Hooters in the Legends. And instead of being strictly a show about Corvettes, this gathering may have been more about … hot wings.
Among the unguarded Corvettes that I nearly drove around the parking lot in, but of course, didn’t, was a buttery Sunfire Yellow ’66 stuffed with soft white leather and a 327/automatic with factory air conditioning. There was also a striking red-on-red ’62 Fulie, a pair of ’96 Grand Sports with both the red and charcoal interior options, and a large variety of late-model Corvettes in various colors, trim levels, and fixed or unfixed roof configurations.
And yet, in spite of their obvious similarities, I love every danged one of them. Corvettes really represent something special. They’re relatively attainable, but not everyone can afford one. They offer a power-to-cost ratio that no other company in the world seems to be able to duplicate. And as further proven by this event, they have some of the most loyal, dedicated enthusiasts in the car world.
And so, I leave you with a slideshow from the annual gathering. I’m also going to tag this story with the words “Hooters Pictures,” because I believe it will increase the Google rankings. Anyway, I hope you enjoy these, hot, sunny midday shots of member’s cars from the Touch of Glass Corvette Club.
