More Than 400 Cars on Hand for Last Vettes and Jets Show
There’s nothing like closing out the finale of a historic American event with more than 400 Corvettes on an aircraft carrier to honor our war veterans.
That, my friends, is the kind of showing of American patriotism that a Facebook or Instagram post will never be able to capture, which is why I certainly hate that I missed the final Vettes and Jets event held in Corpus Christi, Texas last weekend.
The event, which began in 1994, was created to pay tribute to the men and women who have served in America’s Armed Forces in a more unique way than just holding a car show, as highlighted in a Caller Times report. In recent years, the event has helped raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project.
Unfortunately, it appears that the highly decorated USS Lexington aircraft carrier can no longer withstand the wear and tear of more than 1.3 million pounds of Corvettes being loaded onto its flight deck.
Of course, an event as significant as this one needs to continue. So organizers have vowed to find another location for the event in the months to come. Here’s hoping they figure it out, cause this looks like a must-see.
