Fall Show and Shine Highlights
The El Paso Corvette Club conducted it's Fall Show and Shine on 8 October, 2022 to benefit the Salvation Army. The weather wanted to be a factor as the day started out with rain and wind, but once the Corvettes started rolling in to the Applebee's parking lot, Mother Nature took a break and gave us a beautiful day! There were twelve Corvettes for the show and two open show entries. Some of our friends from West Texas Vettes were able to cruise in later in the day. Many local folks stopped in to walk around a look at all of the awesome rides. A big thanks to all the club members that volunteered to work at the event and to those who provided gifts for the raffle. You made this event not only possible but very enjoyable as well.
