MCACN CREW HEADING TO BLOOMINGTON GOLD; WILL HOST A SPECIAL GUEST!
We wait all year for this one, the Grand-daddy of Corvette events, Bloomington Gold. Last year Guy Larsen and his team moved the show to the spectacular Indianapolis Motor Speedway. That alone is reason to attend! If you have been there, you know what I mean and if you haven’t, you need to check it out. This is one of the world’s best facilities and an icon of the Motorsport world. When you add 100’s of the best vintage Corvettes to the mix, along with hundreds of vendors, an Autocross, the track rides, a big swap meet, the Car Corral, the Goldtour and so much more, you have all the makings of a truly outstanding event. We will have a nice big display on the main aisle in the Indy Garages, space #GG 11, across from the beer tent and food concessions. Look for our big Corvette Central Triple Diamond tower sign! We will be talking about what we have going on for this years Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show, and of course talking about our Corvette Central Triple Diamond display and competition. We will also be hosting a very special guest in our display Friday. Dr. Pete Gimenez, Corvette aficionado, author and publisher of the new Corvette Legends magazine, not to mention host of the MCACN Corvette Legends Invitational display, will be joining us. “I attended my first Bloomington Gold in 1981 and I have been a sponsor of the show and the Gold Collection in past years.”
Dr. Pete will be signing his book, Corvette Racing Legends from 2 pm –3 pm Friday (only) in our display, and offering a very special deal for our guests. You will be able to get your signed copy for just $40, a 50% savings over the list price of $80. Let me just say, this beautiful page hardcover is an absolute must have for any Corvette enthusiast. Dr. Pete will also be talking about his new Corvette Legends Magazine, which will be an annual issue and available at MCACN this fall. “These magazines are not only supplements to Corvette Racing Legends, the story of the L-88 option package, but they also include new and exciting article and photos of other low production Corvettes. It will be available to purchase at MCACN and at my Corvette Legends website” Dr. Pete said. For a preview, check out www.corvettelegends.com.
