Corvettes from every era and every generation make their ways across the block. Some of them sell; some of them don't. But it's a nice barometer on the strength of the collector car market, and of course, it makes for some great entertainment.
I really liked the blue-on-blue '66 small-block roadster with gold line tires, knock-off aluminum wheels, and side pipes. I could definitely see me taking that for a long drive in the country.
There was also a very lovable yellow '68 roadster with a 427, Rally Wheels, and red lines. Generally, I like Midyear Corvettes better than the third-generation type, but in this case, the '68 may have been my favorite car on the lot.
If you like your Corvettes a little older, there was a pretty nice '60 there for you. This black-over-red two-top was one of only 759 equipped with fuel injection that year, and the owner claims 29,284 original miles. I can't verify how true or not true that is, but regardless of the actual mileage, it would be a neat car to have.
Friday was all about the specialty cars. Everything from 1930s classics, to hot rods, to muscle cars were awaiting new homes. Whether you like Tri-Five Chevys, pickup trucks, or pace cars, there was bound to be something to satisfy your needs.
There were also quite a few exotic type cars there. I don't see many Maseratis and Bentleys in the places I hang out, so they do tend to make an impression when I see several of them in one place. Aston Martins are pretty good looking cars, don't you think?
They also have a big factory Harley Davidson sale, and various powersport and specialty sales throughout the year. It is a truly enormous place, with on-site detail and repair facilities, an army of employees, and paved vehicle storage lots that extend as far as the eye can see. It is a formidable place to be sure.
As usual, I leave you with the requisite slideshow of cars from Friday's festivities. Sadly, I did not come home with any of these. But like you, I can look back on the slideshow and dream.
