Eckler's 30th Corvette Reunion — Photos

Here are photos of all C3s that were entered for the 30th Eckler's Corvette Reunion at their warehouse in Titusville, Florida, Saturday, January 21st.

Many other Corvette enthusiasts brought their cars to the event, but unless they were pre-registered, they had to park in the back forty. Consequently, I heard many unhappy comments from people who wanted to show their cars but were unable to.

I was told that the limit was two hundred spots, which were taken up mainly by C4 and newer Vettes. The C7 class was so big that their parking area looked like a Corvette dealership.

Here are a few pics I was able to shoot with my phone of the C3s in attendance.

Yours truly and my '76.

Eckler's 30th Corvette Reunion

The rescheduled 30th Corvette Reunion by Eckler's is taking place this Saturday, January 21st at 7980 Grissom Parkway in Titusville, FL.

The original event was planned to take place October 8th., 2016, but hurricane Matthew forced its cancellation.

Even though the two hundred show spots were sold out, I emailed the Cape Kennedy Corvette Club in order to secure a place on the waiting list. And when they notified me that one opened up, I made sure to send in the entry fee right away. 

So my '76 Stingray will be at the show, along with the other C3 entries.

If you are planning to attend, make sure to stop by and introduce yourself.

Stay tuned for show photos. And as always, thanks for following.

Rebuilding and Upgrading the Corvette L-48 Engine | Part 7

When I talked to Mark at Sunrise Automotive here in Orange City, Florida about having a local race shop rebuild the L-48 with a few performance parts a while ago, I mentioned to him that I'd also like to have a list of specs of what they did and/or added to the motor.

This is the complete report of what they did:
