Normal, IL (January 1, 2009) — It’s time for automotive enthusiasts to mark their summer calendars as anticipation builds for Bloomington Gold®, America’s Original Corvette Show. Bloomington Gold Corvettes USA’s 37th show will be held June 25-28, 2009, at Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles, Ill.

“Bloomington Gold is the longest running continuous Corvette show and, since 1973, has set the standard by which other Corvette events are measured,” said David Burroughs, CEO, Bloomington Gold. “We really have something for everyone. In addition to our Gold Certification®, the flagship and revolutionary judging event from which the show gained its name, attendees can enjoy educational and restoration seminars, auctions, museum-quality displays of America’s rarest and fastest Corvettes, road tours, music and video entertainment, plus our surprise special events that are always an audience favorite.”

The magnificent Pheasant Run Resort plays host to the Bloomington Gold Corvette show, with its 18-hole championship golf course featuring tree-lined fairways, pristine lakes and carefully manicured greens, creating “a spectacular display venue for America’s sports car,” Burroughs said.

“When you combine the 60 Corvettes in The Special Collection® with the 250 Certification and SURVIVOR® Collector cars as well as 350 high end auction cars, plus thousands of additional Corvettes on the golf course, Bloomington Gold offers attendees access to the highest concentration of America’s coolest – not to mention most expensive – Corvettes found in one place,” said Burroughs.

Gold Certification means that a car has been “preserved in” or “restored to” within 95% of the way it appeared when it left the factory – no better, no worse, no different. Bloomington Gold has certified more than 6,000 Corvettes since beginning in 1978.
