11th Annual Corvettes America Car Show Grows Despite the Rain.
America’s Corvette Club of Michigan engineered an excellent outing for mid-August this year with their Alpine Valley Corvette Show (named after the physical location in White Lake, Michigan). The event began with overcast skies, which were briefly followed with a light shower, but then the day opened up with pleasant temperatures under partly cloudy skies.
Approximately 350 Corvettes joined for a judged Show & Shine Competition (with many prizes), an NCCC Sanctioned People’s Choice Competition, a used Corvette Corral, a good number and variety of vendors, a charity benefit silent auction, a 50/50 raffle, and food offerings. By the way, $6000 was raised for donation to charity, half each to Leader Dogs for the Blind and the Karmanos Cancer Institute. All generations of Corvettes were well represented, and many, many sharp looking cars were present. A good sized contingent of cars even came all the way from Texas, California and other parts of the USA!
The two major sponsors of the show this year were George Matick Chevrolet and Cauley Performance Automotive, both of which had large blue and white striped tents to attract interested customers. Other vendors present included The National Corvette Museum, American Custom Industries, ARESCO Auto Lifts, Callaway Cars, Corvette Central, D.J. Race Enterprise, Galli Shirts & Sports Apparel, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering, and Paragon Reproductions.
Thanks to all who participated, and see ya next year, August 11th for the 12th Annual Corvettes America!
