Corvette

Beautiful cars from all over the country will be at Broadway at the Beach this June for your viewing pleasure.

Unlike other car shows, however, this one will feature just one make: Corvettes.

The 22nd annual Corvettes at Myrtle Beach car show will be held Saturday, June 3 at Broadway at the Beach from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Hosted by the Myrtle Beach Corvette Club, the car show is open to the public at no charge.

Cars on display will span several decades, with models from 1953 to 2017.

Trophies will be awarded for different classes, C1 through C7.

There will be a Best in Class trophy for each category and a Best in Show trophy for the winner overall.

Other awards include Best Engine, Best Interior, Best Exterior, Most Extreme, Ladies Choice and Custom and Stock.

To be eligible for a trophy, drivers must register their car in advance and stand by their cars while the judges inspect their cars.

The Corvette Club’s event does draw returning drivers and spectators, a testament to the event’s success.

A DJ will be spinning tunes throughout the day, and food vendors will be selling items to spectators. The car show is an all-ages event.

The Corvette Club is very dedicated to giving back to the community.

A large portion of the funds generated from club events are donated to local charities in Brunswick, Georgetown and Horry counties.

Last year, the club raised nearly $25,000 and donated money to Meals on Wheels and the Veterans Welcome Home & Resource Center.

The Myrtle Beach Corvette Club was founded in 1977 and is comprised of Corvette enthusiasts who live across the Grand Strand, from Georgetown to Wilmington, N.C.

The group holds meetings each month, but participation in these events isn’t required.

Being a member is more about sharing a passion for cars, making new friends and having a good time.
