Judging photo

A Gold Certified car appears as it would just after completion of "typical factory production." It means that a Corvette has been preserved or restored within 95% of the way it appeared when it left the factory – no better, no worse, no different. Bloomington Gold’s standards for authenticity and condition are clear – the goal is to attain historic perfection, not cosmetic perfection.

One weekend each year, owners present their Corvettes to be judged for the coveted GOLD CERTIFIED award. Our highly qualified judges have been known for their knowledge, courtesy and consistency for 40 years.
