C3 Corvettes of the 2017 Spring Daytona Turkey Run

Two days was plenty for me this year at the 2017 Spring Daytona Turkey Run, held at the Daytona International Speedway infield.

I was there on Friday and Saturday with perfect weather for the event.

I did not see as many C3s as I was hoping to, and probably missed a few amidst the sea of cars and trucks present, which I am guessing was probably well over a couple thousand.

Since this is a blog for my '76 Stingray, I have to start by posting a bunch of photos of my car. And since I like to arrive early in order to get a good parking spot, I also have plenty of time to detail it the best I can, especially under the hood.

And here are a few other C3s I happened to spot on Friday and Saturday.

I was really planning to be at the Speedway for all three days of the Spring Turkey Run, but the sun got to me so I decided to just chill at home on Sunday.

My Vette is going to spend several days down in Maitland at Corvette Masters for a few repairs and new parts, and on April 8th I am driving down to Cape Canaveral for a Corvette show at the port. It will be my first time there so I hope we'll have good weather for that event.

So stay tuned, and—as always—thanks for following my '76 Vette Blog!
