Vettes on the Square impresses yet again, and one year for Hover Motor Company
Corvettes used to be easy. There was a code for coupe, a code for convertible, maybe a code for the Z06, and that's it. Boom--three VIN codes.
But this weekend, I realized that they have, indeed, sold quite a few Corvettes lately. Because when you looked down the street at the Kansas City Corvette Association's annual Vettes on the Square car show in Independence, you were greeted with a veritable sea of shiny, fiberglass sports cars.
Of course, all years of Corvettes were welcome, and there were some great examples of all of them. For my money, the most interesting cars to look at are the older models, with the Midyear cars tripping my trigger first, and the Straight Axle generation coming in at a close second.
This also marks a bit of a milestone for me, because the Vettes on the Square event last year was the first car show I covered when I switched to the new Hover Motor Company blog. So I guess this is like a one-year anniversary story.
Anyway, it was a beautiful day to check out some beautiful cars. But if you couldn't make it, I guess the slideshow below will have to do. Click this link for a nicer version.
