Default Random C3 Interest Pictures From Bloomington

Heres some more photos from Bloomington Gold, these with C3 interest. The L88s were awesome, we loved the Monaco Orange convertible. Great black out/blue in big block in the Certification area.




Iíll add a link to my other photos in C1/2 at the end.

This blue car was sold on the trailer. Incredible angle of the hood going through the windshield.

Weather was perfect today for walking around! Throroughly enjoyed hearing all those L88's rumble as they lined up for the lap around the oval.

I think the 78 owner is a member here. If I recall he had a thread about his car. I recall reading it and wondering how a car with 500 miles on still had plastic on the seats.
Thanks for posting! The black and blue beauty was my favorite.

Vettebuyer6369, thanks for the pics, what an incredible, incredible group of L-88s. In all my 40 years of this Corvette stuff, that will certainly be tough to top. Just f'n WOW!!!!! Just f'n AMAZING to witness that!!!. In all honesty, if it was the one thing I was very dissappointed in was that for the 50th Celebration of the '68, there was only 3 '68s in the 50th display outside. Did see like 8 more '68s inside the one building and another 8-10 '68 L-88s so that made up for it!!! Loved Corvette Mike's Silver L-88 conv with hdtp and the other '68 L-88s. I know, I know, shoulda taken my camera, forgot it. Drove 640mi round trip out & back since 4:45AM & just back home a few mins after 12AM. Another amazing thing out of like 22 some '68s, saw like 7 Bronze '68s !!! Several had the Dark Orange interior too !!!
