Vettes for Veterans 2017

We decided to participate in the Vettes for Veterans Corvette show today in our home town of Carlsbad.

It took a bit of shuffling to get the 56 and the 62 out of the garage.

We drove the short distance from our house to the car show.

The organizers let us park Nan's 56 next to my 62.

There were more than 200 Corvettes registered for the event at the Shops at Carlsbad; the shopping center contained even more Corvettes for people who arrived too late to register.

Corvette friend Bill Connelly brought his beautiful 1957 Corvette.

Another Corvette friend, Vladimir Medvinsky, and his wife Rosie, brought their 60th Anniversary Corvette, but too late to register it.

Lots of friends and neighbors stopped by to visit and see all the amazing cars.

The Corvettes were judged in each Corvette generation with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes.  At the end of the day, the organizers announced the winners in each category.  We were shocked to learn that Nan's 56 won 1st Place for first generation!

  It was a happy drive home at the end of the day!

Time to put the Corvettes and Go Karts to bed!
