2015 Canberra national Corvette meet

I went to this today. May be a bit small compared to the US. Earliest was a 1954 one. The Mustang at the start was in the carpark, but looked nice.

saaz great pictures. Thanks.  I didn't know that, prior to 2015, Corvette made a right hand drive.  Are those earlier right hand drive models conversions?

I think that they might be, as many left hand drive cars had to be converted to be able to be registered, and there were restrictions on how many per year before all Australian design rules had to be met. The Corvette was never imported on an official basis, so they were pricey.

Thanks saaz.  Kind of what I thought. I didn't realize that converting to a right-hand drive was a requirement in. Australia. I had thought the conversions were done by a few drivers who Felt uncomfortable driving a left-hand drive vehicle on the "wrong side of the road"
