Register Today to Showcase Your Vette and Honor a Corvette Legend

Wil Cooksey is many things to many people, but that fame all started when he assumed the role of Corvette Plant Manager in Bowling Green, Kentucky in 1993. Fast forward 15 years and Corvette rolled out 505 Crystal Red Z06 427 Corvettes. They were limited to say the least and they are known as the Cooksey Corvettes. The run was done to honor Cooksey as he retired from the plant and each were signed by him.

10 years later, Cooksey is still retired and his star shines bigger and brighter each year at Corvettes at Carlisle. With 2018 being the 10-year anniversary of these car’s production and the 25th anniversary of his hiring in Bowling Green, Carlisle Events and Corvettes at Carlisle proudly announce this special display as part of the 2018 show.

There are some special features associated with this display that you will NEED TO KNOW! First, if you own a Cooksey Corvette, your 2018 registration is FREE! If you’ve already registered, we’ll credit that towards 2019. Second, Cooksey will be hosting seminars and meet and greet sessions all weekend within Building R and finally, he and his lovely wife Liz will be with us all four days of Corvettes at Carlisle and can’t wait to meet you!

Register today by e-mailing Jodi Morrison and if you have any questions, give her a call at 717-243-7855 x113.
