The first 50 1953 Corvettes were delivered to hand- picked celebrities, athletes and corporate executives.
THE CARLISLE PILGRIMAGE Every year on the last weekend of August the Corvette faithful come from all corners of the earth to gather with their brethren at the Carlisle Fairgrounds in Pennsylvania. Over the 4-day weekend you’ll see solid axles, MidYears, Sharks, C4s, C5s, C6s and C7s along with all kinds of parts, upgrades, exhausts and such being sold, bought, swapped and installed. If it has anything at all to do with Corvettes, it’s represented at Corvettes at Carlisle. There’s something for everyone at Carlisle – all kinds of fast food, cold beverages, refreshments – even the Women’s Oasis. If you want to get a model Corvette or a promo model, here’s where you’ll find them. Corvette jewelry? Got you covered here too. Corvette shirts, hats and other apparel? Carlisle’s the place to be. How about Corvette luminaries? You’ll see the likes of Dave McLellan, Harlan Charles, Lance Miller, Kevin Mackay and other big names in the Corvette world there giving speeches, conducting Q&A sessions, or moderating workshops. Indeed, if you’re into Corvettes, then this is Mecca. This issue is dedicated to the annual 2018 Corvettes at Carlisle with more than 200 photos. So, if you couldn’t make it to Carlisle in person this year, then by all means go there vicariously within this issue. Enjoy!
