Dutch Corvette Clubs celebrate 60 years of the iconic sports car

Some 280 Corvettes from the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and the U.S. gather in Arnhem, Netherlands

On June 30, 1953, the very first Corvette left the production line in Flint Michigan. Excatly 60 years later to the day, the three Dutch Corvette Clubs jointly organized a meeting to celebrate the anniversary of their favourite car.

The three clubs, NCRS Dutch Chapter, Heartbeat Corvette Club and Stingray'82, had selected a very nice location in Arnhem with various halls to accommodate the some 280 Corvettes from the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and the U.S. (American army personnel based in Germany).

Some very exclusive Vettes and/or special versions were exhibited, ranging from a 1954 Corvette C1 across all Corvette generations all the way to a 60th anniversary edition 2013 Corvette 427 convertible.

2200 visitors attended the event.

The event also included activites such as a Concours d'Elegance, music performances, shops, catering, etc.

With kind regards,

Piet

  Here is some useful info.
A little piece of history.
The very 1st  Drive IN Movie
In the USA.

On June 6, 1933, Richard Hollingshead, Jr. opened the world's first drive-in movie theater on Crescent Boulevard in Camden, New Jersey. Admission was 25 cents for the car, 25 cents per person and the maximum charge per car was one dollar.

The drive-in's peak popularity came in the late 1950s and early 1960s, with some 4,000 drive-ins across the United States, and more than 40 such theaters in New Jersey alone. Today there remain fewer than 400 operating drive-in theaters nationwide, and sadly, the state where the concept was created has only one remaining in operation.
