2011 XXX All Corvette Show

This Sunday was the All Corvette Show at XXX Rootbeer in Issaquah. Despite the weekend forecasts flip-flopping every other day last week, it actually ended up being pretty nice. We drove in at about 9am, found a nice spot in front of a gorgeous ’58, and proceeded to chill out for most of the day. Our entry in the show was a 1971 Corvette coupe, competing against some very nice cars in the early C3 (’68-’73) class.

And, wouldn’t you know it, at the end of the event, we drove off with a rootbeer mug trophy for Best in Class. And our neighbor, the ’58, ended up with Best in Class for C1 and Best in Show! Isn’t that nice? The turnout was great, the show ran smoothly, and there were a lot of really beautiful cars there. Here we are lined up for the awards:

I feel I have to mention the post I made last year about the very same event. I was disappointed that so many of the winners last year belonged to club members, because of the tendency of car clubs to form voting blocs that keep non-club cars from winning. I’m happy to report that that did not happen this year. I’m not just saying this because we won; the winners this year really did include some of the best examples of their classes. So bravo, Corvette Marque Club. I don’t know if you did anything to improve the situation this year, or if it just happened on its own, but thank you. You ran a great show.
