Faithful attendees of the annual Corvette Homecoming and Chevy Invitational Inc. event will have to enter a new address into their GPS for the 2017 event as it is set to take place at its new location: the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
The event was first held back in 1981 after being created by two Corvette enthusiasts, Tom Hill and Sam Hall. Its creation was inspired by the assembly of Corvettes moving from St. Louis, MO to the Bowling Green Assembly Plant, which is currently the sole assembler of the car.
Numerous competitions are held at the event, with judges voting on the best of the best in various shows including Sans Pareil (meaning “without equal”) and Ultra Originals, which requires entrees to be at least 30 years old and 85 percent original. There’s also a Full Custom class.
In addition to the shows are informative seminars. Sounds like a great place to learn more about the Corvette while having the chance to see some extraordinary examples of the sports car. Dates for the 36th annual event are set for June 1 through June 3. For more information, visit the event’s website.
