Iconic examples of America’s automotive history are coming to the American Airpower Museum (AAM) in East Farmingdale for Vettes and Jets, where Corvettes will mix with Jets, on Oct. 1. The “Vettes” on display are the vehicles of members of the Long Island Corvette Owners Association (LICOA), who plan to meet up prior to the event to line up their cars and caravan to the museum.
Undeniably appealing, the Corvette is a classic and all vintages will be shown, from the first-generation C1 (which was introduced in 1953) to the newer models, like C7 (introduced in 2014). These beauties will be lined up on the AAM ramp for your review. And, they will be offset by the museum’s World War II, Vietnam and Korean conflict-era planes.
You can’t help but feel the love for these vehicles with LICOA members on hand to talk with about their prized Corvettes. As you walk amongst these gleaming exhibits, photography is encouraged (so, take some pics). There’s also a chance to vote for “People’s Choice.”
Spending a Sunday with dozens of Corvettes, while also getting the inside scoop on them, sounds like a winner to me.
