Default C3 of the Month competition for 2017

This thread kicks off Corvetteforum’s third annual C3 Corvette of the Month contest and will culminate with Corvette of the Month winners in each generation competing for Corvette of the Year.

The C3 of the Month winner will get not just bragging rights, but also one National Corvette Museum pass, a Corvetteforum Travel Mug, and a free one-year upgrade to Supporting Member status on the forum.

To enter, post one photo of your C3 in this thread no later than Sept. 15. Moderators then will pick ten of their favorites as finalists and set up a poll to allow you to vote on which of those finalists is the 2017 C3 Corvette of the Month.

The fine print: One entry per member. This contest is open to members located in the contiguous United States or the District of Columbia who are over the age of 18. Please see the Official Rules attached below for more.
