Fourteen days, ten hours, and forty-eight minutes until the largest Corvette event in the world…not that we’re counting, or anything!
Corvettes at Carlisle features more than 5,000 Corvettes and represents every single generation of Corvette ever produced. Not only are these ‘Vettes on display, but there’s burnout pits, a parade through Downtown Carlisle, and hundreds of vendors with anything you can imagine for you and your car!
While you can take the family and spend a day (or all three) walking the grounds and taking it all in, you’re also able to buy those body parts you’ve been looking for AND have them installed while you’re there! Don’t want to spend 4-6 weeks waiting for a painted piece you ordered online? Head on over to PA, pick it out and drive it home! Not sure you’re ready to drop the moolah on something you can’t see in person? Spend a few days drooling over all the goodies, take home all the flyers and business cards you find, check out the work of all the vendors, and make your decision from the comfort of your home!
Looking through the hundreds of vendors on the list of attendees, one happened to jump out at us. Our friends over at RPI Designs will be there, as always, and this year they happen to be offering an installation booth! Not to mention chocolate chip cookies! I mean, come on. Who can resist some homemade chocolate chip cookies?!
It’s late July and the weather is beautiful. No chance for snow or sleet, and week-long streaks of no rain in sight. That C7 beauty has been out on the road plenty of times this summer, and is changing from a weekend driver, to a more daily driver, as the weather continues to cooperate. But with daily driving, comes daily wear and tear. That sleek front end can take a beating when faced with those bugs and rocks that come with both highway and back-road cruising. But who wants that big, bulky leather or vinyl bra that requires drilling and all sorts of hassle to install? Have no fear, we’ve found the perfect alternative!
NoviStretch Masks are a new, patent pending design that is 100% USA-Made, and requires NO drilling for install! Not to mention, they provide “hidden” hardware so you’re not taking away from the sleek design of that C7. They fit nice and snug to the contours of your car, and have no cutouts or seams that can scratch or damage your front end. These covers are made of a durable, synthetic stretch mesh material that allow it to breathe, while also protecting that finish on your car. This material makes for easy cleaning, and even easier storage when not in use! Weighing in around 1lb, this lightweight design can quickly be installed before a drive, removed when you’ve reached your destination, and discreetly stored right in your glove compartment! Try that with a vinyl or leather bra!
Live in a state that requires a front license plate? No worries, just mount the plate directly over top of the mask. Piercing the mask with the mounting screws doesn’t cause the fabric to “run” or tear. Have a modified front end on that puppy? No problem! NoviStretch masks are designed to stretch and fit just about any type of front end body modification.
We found these covers at RPI Designs and also Southern Car Parts for $159.00 on each site. These covers come with a 12-month warranty and have an expected lifespan between 2-3 years. Check ’em out! We don’t think you’ll be disappointed!
