Every year the little city of Carlisle, Pennsylvania is turned into the center of the Corvette universe for the annual Corvettes at Carlisle show. In years past Corvettes at Carlisle has always had a “theme” for its event, gathering the rare, wacky, and wild to be gawked at by Corvette lovers from across the country. While previous themes have focused on a particular model or a single unique Corvette, this year’s theme is a bit more, shall we say, DIY?
CorvetteBlogger reports that this year’s Carlisle theme is 4×4 Corvettes, every backyard mechanics’ dream car. The people who head Carlisle are reaching out for 4×4 Corvette owners to include them in the show, so tell your friends; there are more of these beasts out there than you might realize.
We’ve featured a number of lifted, 4×4 Corvettes on these hallowed pages in the past, and there is something infinitely appealing about taking a dedicated sports car and giving it an eight-inch lift with some serious mudding tires. It just makes the Corvette far more practical for anybody who has to deal with snow or dirt on a regular basis. Who doesn’t want to drive their Corvette in the middle of a blizzard?
