Sunday Afternoon with the Classics: The Chevrolet Corvette
October 6, 2019 at 1:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Named after a small, highly maneuverable naval escort ship, the Corvette was introduced in 1953 as the first large-scale, mass-produced car with an all-fiberglass body. Unique in automotive history, no other car has come close to the romantic reputation of Chevrolet’s powerful two-seat sports car. It has become one of the most loved legends of American auto manufacturing – no other car has achieved over 65 years of continuous production.
Join the Corvette Club of Richmond and Richmond Region AACA for a presentation and exploration of 8 generations of vehicle design and see why over 1.5 million Corvettes have been manufactured in America and sold around the world! Part of the popular Sunday Afternoon with the Classics automotive series. Drive your antique vehicle and participate in a mini cruise-in 12:30-4pm. Examples of all Corvette generations will be on display. Presentation from 2-3:30pm.
