It seems that Corvettes and CORSA Performance exhaust systems go together; at least when it comes to the late-model guys. They’ve been associated with Corvettes and Corvette performance for quite some time, and have even hosted an annual Corvette get-together at their Berea, Ohio facility for the last thirteen years!
Open to all Corvettes of every vintage, CORSA blew opened up its doors for an open house/car show that not only allowed attendees to tour the CORSA facility, but to also let CORSA personally install an exhaust system of their own design onto their Corvettes! The event was held on July 26th, and highlighted some of the nicest examples of Corvette front the Northeast Ohio area.
According to our friend, CORSA’s Brent Noward, the event was bigger than last year’s; which brought out well over 200 Corvettes. Close to 300 Vettes were in attendance this year, and many of which received a new CORSA exhaust while there. In fact, the lifts were tied up through the entire Saturday with cars getting their new loud pipes mounted up and Volant/CORSA cold-air induction kits installed.
To make things even more intriguing, CORSA offered a one-day only discount for those who attended, and even installed the kits for free – pretty cool! Participants only paid $15 to enter their Corvette in the show, with fun, food and friends in attendance!
Corvette related vendors, food and facility tours will also be part of the free admission into the event. Though, if you plan on bringing your Corvette, registration will be $15. All of the proceeds from the registration and a 50/50 raffle went to the OhioGuidestone, a local charity supporting underprivileged families.
The raffle prizes included a CORSA exhaust and induction kit, a Power Wheels C7 Corvette and even a set of Goodyear ties, who happen to be local to CORSA! It was a great event and we’re already looking forward to attending next year!
