Corvette Show Wrap Up

Tony Hughes, vice-President of the Sulphur Springs Corvette Club, said Saturday’s event on and around the plaza was a fantastic show. He added many attendees called it the best show they’d ever been to. Hughes said there were 183 Corvettes entered. They had only 186 spaces. There were 88 cars in last year’s show. Hughes said he would have hated to be a judge with all the beautiful cars in the show.

One of the Best of Show winners at the Corvette Show Saturday on the plaza was a 1957 Corvette belonging to Bill Preston of Flower Mound. Preston said he bought the car for $1,000 from a college student in 1969. Now he said only silly money could buy it. The car has been named Best of Show in three straight shows.

In attendance Saturday at the Corvette Show on the plaza was Johnny Downs, Chairman of the Board for the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Downs from Fort Worth said he was hoping for a quiet year but then a large sinkhole at the Museum swallowed up eight Corvettes. All were pulled out. He said three would be restored but five were too far gone. He has seven Corvettes.
