Carlisle, Pennsylvania has become a sort of East Coast automotive Mecca in the past few decades, hosting some of the largest and best-known car shows east of the Mississippi. A big part of Carlisle’s success has been its promotions and contests, giving back to the people who helped make the show what it is today.

Motor Authority reports that this year, Carlisle will be giving away a 1998 Corvette C5 with just 24,000 miles on the odometer. It’d be a great start to any car collection.

In past years Carlisle events has helped facilitate a number of different contests, among them the giveaway of a Fiat X1/9 and a Ford Coyote 5.0 crate engine. Last year Carlisle even helped give away, of all vehicles, a Ford Pinto! We have to say though, this latest giveaway blows those other contests away.

The ‘98 Corvette packs a 5.7 liter LS1 engine good for about 350 horsepower. Carlisle teamed up with AllVette.com, who lists the ‘Vette in “like new” condition. Painted in Sebring Silver, this Corvette has a six-speed transmission and AllVette.com will even throw in a 90-day, 5,000 mile warranty.
