Corvettes at Carlisle: When you mention the city of Carlisle, Pennsylvania to anyone who is a fan of sports a certain name is probably going to immediately arise. The great multi-sport athlete Jim Thorpe went to Carlisle Indian Industrial School and it was there that he burgeoned into an athletic force to be reckoned with under the tutelage of the legendary football coach Glenn Scobey “Pop” Warner.
However, when it comes to automobile enthusiasts and Corvette fans in particular Carlisle is famous for something else. Each and every year the city of Carlisle plays host to the most extraordinary Corvette event held anywhere on the planet: Corvettes at Carlisle.
What would you consider to be a lot of Corvettes all gathered together in one place? Would 50 be kind of exciting to see? How about 100? 1000 Corvettes all gathered in one location would certainly be a spectacle now wouldn’t it?
