CORVETTE enthusiasts, mark your calendars.
On Sunday six generations of Corvettes will be on show at The Australian Hotel and Brewery in Rouse Hill. It was 60 years ago that the first 300 of the famous fibreglass sports cars rolled off the assembly line at Flint in Michigan.
"Few ever envisaged the car would evolve as it did, becoming America's iconic sports car and have a huge following here in Australia," said a hotel spokeswoman.
Sunday's NSW Corvette 60th Anniversary Show will feature 60 Corvettes and a Show and Shine, where judges from the Council of Motor Clubs will judge on appearance, cleanliness and overall appeal.
Trophies will be awarded in 19 categories, ranging from best engine bay and interior to exterior and Car of Show.
"We have a Survivor Trophy which goes to an older car that's been worn in but not worn out," the spokeswoman said.
The public can vote for their favourite car, with a winner to be announced during a trophy presentation at 2pm.
The Corvette was invented by GM designer Harley Earl. He borrowed the name Corvette from a line of small, fast navy ships used in WWII.
It's at the Australian Hotel, 350 Annangrove Road, Rouse Hill, on Sunday, from 10am.
