"It's a pretty big deal when a bustling city like Birmingham (MI) turns its two main streets over to you for a day-long Corvette show," says North Oaks Corvette Club past president and Corvette Generations Car Show chairman Skip Hartlerode.

The metro Detroit club will host this premier annual show in conjunction with Birmingham's "Day on the Town" shopping event. The community's downtown crossroads -- Old Woodward Avenue and Maple Road in the heart of the main shopping and entertainment district -- will be closed from early morning on Saturday, July 26 until early evening for pedestrian traffic only.

Show Corvettes, car enthusiasts, guests, shoppers and diners will have the town to themselves. All stores and restaurants remain open during this busiest shopping day of the year in Birmingham.

The club's event tents move north to the Maple-Old Woodward intersection, providing prime real estate for the show's award stage this summer. There is room for up to 150 Corvettes to line Old Woodward Avenue both north and south of Maple Road.

But the rain-or-shine show is limited to the first 120 Corvettes that register.

"We're looking forward to a bigger event for 2014, with more Corvettes of any generation whether stock, custom or modified, people's choice voting, trophies in 13 classes, more door prizes, raffles, entertainment, a kids' zone and a huge sidewalk sale," adds Hartlerode. 

Pre-registration is $25 per Corvette or $35 the day of the show, space permitting.

Trophies are courtesy of Matick Chevrolet, the club's Corvette sponsor.
