Rock and Brews Cruise & Show | 2/26/2017

Cruisin Orlando organizes some of the best cruises/car shows in Central Florida, and today's cruise at Rock & Brews in Oviedo was no exception.

I arrived at the venue way too early, which allowed me to go to the local Starbucks on Red Bug Road and Tuscawilla in order to get some much-needed caffeine in me. And by the time I pulled into the parking area, there were at least twenty or more show cars there, even though the event did not officially start an hour-plus later.

Corvette Masters. Maitland, Florida

I am fortunate to live about 40 minutes from Corvette Masters, a Vette specialist located right here in Central Florida, so after making an appointment the week before to have them inspect my car, I arrived at their facility early Tuesday morning for the inspection.

I was met by George, one of the mechanics, who promptly got my car up on a lift to check things out.

Precious Metals — Gold and Silver C3 Corvettes

Although my '76 Vette was originally Silver Metallic (paint code 13), the previous owner—at some point years ago—had the car repainted its current shade of red. I debated for a while whether I should have it returned to its original color, but I really like the shade of red he chose so it will remain red ... for now, anyway.

Having said that, I've always liked how C3 Corvettes look in either silver or gold, so here are a few examples I have collected during my web surfing.
