24th National Corvette Convention – Vettes Rock the Gong in 2012

April 8, 2012

The NSW Corvette Unlimited Car Club hosted the 24th National Corvette Convention yesterday, with ‘Vettes Rock the Gong in 2012’ show and shine at Wollongong beach. The event showcased over 100 modern, retro, and classic Chevrolet Corvettes.

The show and shine display is just one element to the 24th National Corvette Convention. The annual gathering includes various activities across the entire Easter Weekend, such as a presentation dinner last night, a cruise across the Sea Cliff Bridge today, and a beach-side BBQ breakfast set for Easter Monday.

Yesterday though, the three car parks at Flagstaff Hill were jam-packed with stunning well-kept examples. There was a number of classic Sting Ray models including rare convertibles, a full dragster version, as well as modern day ‘Vettes such as a stealthy soft navy blue Z06 model with black alloys.

A number of sponsors helped out to make the event happen, including Performax International – Australia’s leading American vehicle importer and right-hand drive conversion specialist – as well as the Novotel Wollongong which hosted the guests and presentations, and Wave FM.
