Corvettes Gone Wild at 2015 Carlisle

Can’t miss cars and babes of the 2015 Corvettes at Carlisle Show

View Full Gallery

By Saturday morning (August 29th), the Carlisle Fairgrounds were packed from wall to wall for another year of Corvettes at Carlisle. It was literally overwhelming. Walk thirty paces and you find yourself amidst a sea of Corvettes, with no clue from whence you came. Letting this Corvette heaven wash over you, the beauty of similarity is apparent. It is a celebration of the greatest American sports car, and everything right in the world. Raucous V-8 power. Finely tuned suspension. But alas, amidst all of familiarity there are certainly some standouts. While many are good at blending in, others can’t help but grab your attention. Here are some of the most outrageous things we have seen at the 2015 Corvettes at Carlisle event so far, starting with the show field and ending with the bikini contest (a new addition this year):

Stay tuned for more coverage of the 2015 Corvettes at Carlisle as this event wraps up!

002 2015 Corvettes At Carlisle 2/49

What’s not to love about a modified midyear with Forgelines, aftermarket chassis and a beautiful paint job? This former Vette feature is also packing an Procharged LS power – an LS6 with a D-1SC to be exact – with a Tremec TKO 5-speed manual.

003 2015 Corvettes At Carlisle 3/49

There were plenty of ZR-1’s in attendance, this is just happened to have the most (how shall we say) highly decorated LT5.

004 2015 Corvettes At Carlisle 4/49

Get you some of that! There’s nothing like driving around a Corvette with a Pro Mod-style blown big-block and no hood. That’s a GMPP 502 with Edelbrock heads and a BDS 6-71. The gold, purple, and other accents are straight out of the ‘90s. And true to Corvette form, that’s real 24K gold plating.

005 2015 Corvettes At Carlisle 5/49

Yes, there was a burnout contest. And unofficially, we’d say that Corvette America won.

006 2015 Corvettes At Carlisle 6/49

Mark Porter, if you are reading this, love the kilt! Don’t ever change! Mark belongs to the York County Corvette Club, which is right next door.

007 2015 Corvettes At Carlisle 7/49

Believe it or not, this glossy orange is wrap. This C5 was also packing plenty of carbon fiber, including the C6 ZR1-style side skirts.

008 2015 Corvettes At Carlisle 8/49

Here are two trends making a comeback: gold wheels and white-lettered tires.

012 2015 Corvettes At Carlisle 9/49

This Grand Sport was the best pink Corvette we saw all day.

013 2015 Corvettes At Carlisle 10/49

The one-piece nose, Lambo doors, and hatch were all designed and built by the owner. He actually laid the fiberglass himself. As one attendee put it, “It’s not my cup of meat, but you have to respect the engineering that went into that.”

023 2015 Corvettes At Carlisle 11/49

It’s Christmas time year round for this C4 owner.

033 2015 Corvettes At Carlisle 33/49

The bikini contest was a new addition this year.

036 2015 Corvettes At Carlisle 34/49
