The Delaware Valley Corvette Club “Corvettes for the Cure" show for the benefit of Alzheimer’s held it's annual show this past weekend. The 1962 Corvette built by Vestris’ Vettes won Lance Miller Choice award as well as Participants Choice for Best of Show. Winning two awards at any particular show is noteworthy but not exceptional. What was remarkable according to the organizers was that after counting 100 votes for the Vestris’ creation they stopped counting. As it turns out there were 175 Corvettes of 175 possible votes, with at least 100 going to the ’62. The organizers were quoted as saying they had never heard of any car so thoroughly dominating a participant voted show
