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
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,

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.
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.
