We’ve only missed two of these meets since they began in the early 1970s. From the 2016 event in Indy, we noticed this ’63 split window coupe on display. If the claims are true, this is some barn-find car. Well, we suppose it’s a “garage-find”, but that counts, too.

The Corvette was displayed on “legend’s row” at the 2016 Bloomington Gold show in Indianapolis. According to the poster, the car is a big tank Z06 Corvette, owned by the same family more than 50 years. Low miles too, with matching numbers.

Another interesting car on display was this blue Nassau Blue ’66 roadster. The owner purchased the car in the spring of 1966 and shortly thereafter commenced to road and drag racing the car for a number of years. Life got in the way, and the car — while not completely forgotten — was first stored in the garage, then the barn, then the shed for more than a decade.

By the mid 1980s, the owner had new interest and dragged the car out from under its wraps, flat tires and all. He rebuilt the big-block motor to a more street-worthy version, and the car still wears its original paint and interior.
