Mid America Motorworks has announced the dates of its 2008 “Best Garage” contest. Each fall, at its Corvette Funfest show, the catalog company picks three “Best Garages or Corvette Theme Rooms” from mail-in entries. .
During Funfest, photos of participant’s Corvette garages or theme rooms are exhibited so show goers can pick their favorites. Winners are announced on Sunday of the show weekend and receive a Mid America Motorworks gift certificate and a “Corvette goodies” prize bucket.
In addition to picking favorite entries, those voting pick up practical and affordable ideas about decorating their own Corvette “spaces.”
In the 2007 contest, Michael Manderino captured first place with a neat, memorabilia-packed 4-‘Vette garage. Dan and Karen Lucovich came in second with their “black-and-blue” 1-‘Vette garage. Tom Heely was third with his posterized 1-‘Vette garage. All three winning garages had “checkered-flag” floors
To enter the Best Garage contest, you submit 8 x 10 prints or digital images of your “Vette shrine” by September 12, 2008. You do not have to be a Mid America Motorworks customer. First-, second- and third-place prizes will be awarded by popular vote.
