Late model Corvettes made up the lion's share of the show, with KCCA members opting for comfort and reliability over nostalgia.
Most of the vintage Vettes in attendance were ones we've seen in the past, but that doesn't mean I get tired of looking at them. The first-generation contingent consisted of a very nice red '57 on Torque Thrust style wheels, a pretty nice silver '59 with red vinyl, and a hot-rodded black '62.
The only Midyear that was there when I was there was a silver '66 coupe with a 427 big block and air. We've seen it many times before, and I suspect we'll see it a few more times at shows this summer, but there's nothing wrong with that. I'll be just fine with looking at it over and over for years to come. The silver interior just makes it, in my opinion, and it's not something you see all that often.
I wish I would have come up with the aftermarket Corvette parts trade, because they must make a killing on chrome engine bling, armrest covers, Z06 wheels, and logoed floor mats. People love to individualize their Corvettes.
Of course, it also brings to mind the video that I included in this week's Thursday Drive By, where most of the late-model Corvettes in a club in 1958 had obvious modifications. Some things never change.
Do you like shiny Corvettes drenched in sunshine? Yeah, I do too. But if you didn't make it to the KCCA cruise at Wal Mart on Saturday, I have the next best thing. Check out the slideshow below.
