Given that Callaway Cars has been celebrating its twenty five years of association with Chevrolet all this year, it was only appropriate for the owners of Callaway product to join together for a special celebration at Corvettes at Carlisle last month. CorvetteBlog, of course, was there to chronicle the event.
The celebration included three aspects. First, the car created to punctuate those twenty five years was there. We have written about the 2012 Callaway Corvette 4LT B2K Car before, and the factory brought the prototype (the so-called "00 car") with them from Old Lyme, Connecticut for all to see and examine. Also, Leonard Wiggins brought his "01" car By the way, there are just four or five copies still available for sale from this most collectible run of just 25 units. Call Bill at 313-532-2571 for information.
Second, the Callaway Owners Group amassed some forty or more copies of their cars around a big white tent in the west end of the show field. Vehicles rarely seen were visible to all.
Third, on Friday night, Callaway Cars staff and owners from across the fruited plain joined together for a celebratory feast at a nearby Italian restaurant in Carlisle: Marcello's. Co-Owner of Carlisle Events, Lance Miller, and his wife, Michelle, were present for the festivities.
Chris Chessnoe showed the history of the Callaway Corvette, with an ample supply of PowerPoint slides, and the affable founder, Reeves Callaway, addressed the crowd. It was noted that Callaway Cars set two record years of sales in 2010 and 2011, and are looking to do the same again this year.
