Cosworth Vega Awarded at Super Chevy Show and Carlisle GM Nationals

By vegavairbob

Filed under: 1976 Chevrolet Cosworth Vega (Twin Cam)

My 1976 Cosworth Vega made two trips to Pennsylvania this summer for the biggest shows of the season. First up was the Carlisle GM Nationals June 21-23, 2013. The showfield hosted nearly 100 years of automotive history with cars ranging from the 1900s to modern day with 88 different show classes, an an enormous car corral and vender swap meet There was a massive turnout of over 1000 show cars on Saturday. I arrived 9:30 Saturday morning after a four-hour trip from Long Island. My Cosworth Vega was a Showfield entry Sat & Sun. Stayed over in Harrisburg Sat. night and left Sun. after the Awards Parade. The car was awarded "First Place" in its class.

Next up was the Super Chevy Show, Maple Grove Raceway Mohton, Pa. July 19-21, 2013. The biggest Super Chevy Show in the country returned to Maple Grove Raceway as hundreds of cars with the bowtie moniker, and other General Motors products made heir way to Southeastern Pennsylvania to show and race.
I arrived Saturday morning and participated in both the Sat. and Sun. shows with my Cosworth Vega. The car was awarded "Show Class Winner." At the end of the show on Sunday, I had a conversation with the Super Chevy Editor. He asked if he could drive the Cosworth. How could I say no to the Editor of Super Chevy magazine.
