BLOOMINGTON GOLD GEARS UP FOR MOVE TO CHAMPAIGN, IL. THIS WEEKEND
If you are a Corvette enthusiast, all roads lead to Champaign, Illinois this weekend for the huge Bloomington Gold Corvette show, swap and Mecum Auction. Often referred to as “The Grand-Daddy” of Corvette events, we couldn’t agree more. For the past several years, this event took place in St. Charles, IL. and we always look forward to seeing many old friends and making new ones! With the change of ownership to our good friend and MCACN supporter Guy Larsen, we will head to Champaign, IL. this year to the University of Illinois Assembly Hall to be a part of Corvette history in the making!
We will have a display booth in the Northwest Goldmarket area in spot C114, right next to the big Al Knoch interiors display. We will be accepting applications for cars and vendors and as always, I will be on the field to photograph all the gorgeous Corvettes and to spread the word about the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show, November 23-24, 2013 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, (greater Chicago), IL. We have a whole lot to talk about, including our Corvette Central Triple Diamond display and competition, (one of the fastest growing and most popular parts of our show!) for the country’s finest restored and original Corvettes, a very special display devoted to L/88 Corvettes, hosted by Kevin Mackay, the unveiling of a 1967 L/88 Corvette that is coming in all the way from San Francisco and of course, the absolute best Sponsors and vendors!

Our Corvette Central Triple Diamond award has become one of the most prestigious and respected awards in the Corvette hobby. You must first achieve both Bloomington Gold and NCRS Top Flight certification. Our premiere judging team, led by NCRS Region V and Flight Program Director Bill Braun, is made up of many of the most respected long term Corvette Judges with extensive experience. Many are also on Bloomington Gold and NCRS judging teams, and just like your car, are the best of the best. We are proud of our team and encourage you to join us this year for Triple Diamond certification for your 1953-1996 Corvette.
The trailer is packed and we are geared up and ready to spread the word about the World’s largest all indoor specialty show devoted to Muscle Cars, Dealer-built Supercars and the finest and rarest Corvettes. See you in Champaign!
