Yes, that's the pattern we've followed this year and last. Tough job for the moderators in selecting just eight as each car entered was a beauty.

Hey Jerry,

We didn't make the cut! LOL!

None the less, you have a beautiful car!

And the cars chosen look incredible as well. I really don't know how one would choose between the cars.

Happy trails..

Kudos to all the cars pictured. I didn't vote, would be a lot like asking, which is better, barbecued ribs or cherry cobbler. All in all, some very nice representations of C1s.

Wow....not too many with the Chrysler 8 & 3/4" rear. But I know where there's another one! LOL!

Yes, but you'd have to wait until next year to enter.

Been trolling the internet but haven't found another C2 with Chrysler running gear. One of a kind I think?

Slam dunk for me! The first Corvette ride I ever had was in a brand new '56 Black with silver coves and a red interior. Dad had bought a new '56 4-door power pack stick and I had been bugging the small town dealer about when he would get a Corvette. He called me when his first one was delivered. I was hooked big time!
