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.

Great cars those Cosworth Vegas! Congrats on your awards. I also attended both of the events and saw your car. Very Nice!

We were at GM on Friday this years only due to other conflicts. We were at Super Chevy all 3 days. My 68 Impala survivor was just pictured in the magazine and was awarded an Editors choice award at that event.

Congrats again on your Vega!

Donny

Congrats! This was the first year I did not make the GM show. Drat.
