Default Wild Wheels Weekend

Anyone go to the Car Show at the Virginia Beach Convention Center this weekend? What did you all think?

I am glad to see it was back, and think it is off to a good start, but I was a little disappointed in it...it was definitely not the show I remember my father used to show his truck in back in the early 90's that Cecil Profit used to put on. The application made it seem that it was going to be the old school show with true custom and modified cars such as Gary's, but there were a lot of newer "Off The Showroom Floor" cars there.

Now with that being said, there were a lot of really nice cars there, and hopefully in another year or two, the Virginia Beach Convention Center will once again hold a custom auto show like the old Pavilion did.

I know Casey was there with his Vette, and there was a Red C5 almost all decked out like Gary's...but I am sure his has not been taken apart to the bare metal and fiberglass like Gary's.

Tony Watson and I have been on the hunt to find info on a Red C4 that has all of the Vette guys I know that were there baffled. It was signed as being a

1994
ZR
1-Glass Top
Only 200 Made


None of us could not find the owner to ask him about it, but after looking through books, web pages and Corvette Action Center, the only ZR option code we could find was ZR-1. This car had a LT-1 engine, Sawblade wheels, did not have the widened rear end, and was an automatic...definitely not a Z car.

Since it is also a DD, I don't think the Vert is inside caliber, but next year, I will be entering for the outside part.
