Corvettes dating back to 1953 will draw crowds again at the annual 2018 Judged Corvette Show sponsored by the Spirits of ’53 Corvette Club on Sunday, May 20 at the Princeton Forrestal Village Complex from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The annual event is free to attendees and proceeds will benefit The Ronald McDonald House of Central and Northern New Jersey.
“Our Annual Corvette Show gives the club an opportunity to do something for children,” said John Bieglecki, president of the Spirits of ’53 Corvette Club. “It’s a fun, annual tradition and we are looking forward to sharing our love of Corvettes with the community and helping kids.”
“We are so fortunate that the community is willing to support our mission. It is events like this that not only give our organization financial support, but also an opportunity to reach people who normally we would not have an opportunity to see,” said a grateful Susan Collin, Executive Director of The Ronald McDonald House of Central and Northern New Jersey.
The Corvette Show will award trophies in the following classes: Street Stock, Modified and Full Custom. There will also be specialty awards for paint, engine, compartment and best in show. The registration fee is $20 pre-show or $25 day of show. Event sponsorships for $100 are also being accepted. The club will recognize sponsor organizations in handouts given to each show participant.
The year’s event will feature entertainment from the renowned DJ "Stick Shift Eddie" and a live performance by rock and soul band GoodWorks.

About Spirits of ’53 Corvette Club
The Spirits of ’53 Corvette Club began in 1953 when three Corvette owners met and developed a bond at a Sunoco Station where they bought gas. They determined the need for a new club of Corvette owners and actively recruited other owners by leaving leaflets on car windshields.
Today, the club is primarily a social organization whose members participate in a variety of social activities including cruise nights, rallies, races, picnics, holiday parties, Broadway shows, casino trips and softball games against other clubs. The club website is www.spiritsof53.net.
