Corvette show in Roscoe Village celebrating 20th year

| May 30, 2018

COSHOCTON – Take a drive down memory lane in Roscoe Village during the 20th annual Corvettes at Roscoe Village on Sunday, June 10. Classic corvettes from all generations will be rolling in on Whitewoman Street at 9 a.m. for registration and the show opens to the public at 10 a.m. Registration lasts until noon.

The show is one of four car shows hosted annually by the Classic Glass Corvette Club based out of Tuscarawas County. The club started in 1980 by two guys who loved Corvettes and who wanted to get together with other Corvette enthusiasts in the area and have some fun.

“I’ve lived in Coshocton all my life, but club members are from all over the state,” said Mike Johnson who joined the club in 1995 and is the club’s officer-at-large. “Another member of the club and I got together and thought about having a show in Roscoe. Roscoe has had other car shows in the past and they’ve never worked out, but a Corvette show seemed to fit.”

Entry fee for Corvettes is $10 the day of the event and public admission is free. The community is invited to come out to stroll up and down Whitewoman Street, view the Corvettes, and talk to the drivers about their car. It’s not unusual to hear stories about favorite memories and good times in the sun from Corvette owners. The event is reminiscent of family and friends getting together for a big reunion.

“That’s exactly what we want it to be like,” said Johnson.

Throughout the day, DJ Frank Allen will be playing some of the best songs of the 1950s and 1960s from the main stage in Roscoe. Throughout the years, the Corvettes at Roscoe Village car show has grown to feature more than 200 cars.

“There are places to eat in Roscoe and shops to shop in, so we try to push the merchants as much as we can to get them some business the day of the show,” said Johnson.

The awards this year will commemorate the show’s 20th anniversary and were created by Mosser Glass in Cambridge. The awards will be steel blue in color and will feature the club’s logo as well as a picture of Corvettes in front of the shops in Roscoe. The awards are sponsored by Coughlin Chevrolet in Pataskala and the Roscoe Village Business Association sponsors a Roscoe Village Choice Award. Awards will be given out at around 4 p.m. Three awards will be given out in each class, which are categorized by the Corvette’s generation. Awards will vary in size depending on the type of award. Must be present to win award. Corvettes are judged by Classic Glass Corvette club members.

Awards in first, second, and third place are given to the following classes: C1 – 1953 – 1962; C2 – 1963 – 1967; C3 – 1968 – 1982; C4 – 1984 – 1996; C5 – 1997 – 2004; C6 – 2005 – 2013; and C7 – 2014 – Present. Additional awards go to best of show, oldest Corvette attending show, Classic Glass Club Choice, largest Corvette club in attendance, and the Roscoe Village Choice Award.

Handicapped parking is available on a first come, first serve basis. No preferred parking is available.

The Classic Glass Corvette Club is active in many charitable organizations and the money generated from each show goes toward their various charities that the club supports. As a club, they also have a monthly social where members go out to dinner and have a good time.

“We all love the Corvette and we all love to have a good time,” said Johnson. “We try to do that as much as possible.”

The club’s next car show is the Charity Car Show at the Atwood Yacht Club in Sherrodsville on Sunday, July 29 starting at 10 a.m. Visit their website at for more information or follow them on Facebook.
