CLASSIC CORVETTES FEATURED AT STAR-TELEGRAM AUTOFEST

FORT WORTH-DALLAS (April 15, 1999) - People are awestruck when one passes by on the highway. Daydreams are filled with thoughts of it. It is the ultimate American sports car. What captures the hearts of American car lovers? Nothing like a Corvette.

The Star-Telegram AutoFest featuring the Pate Swap Meet at Texas Motor Speedway April 29 - May 2 will include many treasured Corvettes. An enterprising car enthusiast can even purchase the Corvette of his or her dreams during AutoFest.

Three of the premium Corvettes scheduled to be offered for sale in the Pate Swap Meet Car Corral, located in the infield on the speedway’s frontstretch, date back more than a quarter of a century. Metroplex businessman Terry Malone is selling a 400-horsepower 1967 Corvette, a 300-horsepower 1966 ‘Vette and a cascade green, 1957 435-horsepower model. The 1967 Corvette will be offered for $75,000, the other two for $50,000 each.

"The 1967 Corvette includes factory air conditioning and a 427 cubic inch engine," said Malone. "It is a true muscle car. People that love Corvettes will enjoy seeing these three cars."

The Star-Telegram AutoFest will include more than 8,000 vendors in the Pate Swap Meet making it one of the nation’s three largest automotive swap meets. The Leake Collector Car Auction will include 350 prime collector cars for sale. The Legends Cars and Bandoleros will race Saturday afternoon, May 1 at 4:00 p.m. at Lil’ Texas Motor Speedway.

Star-Telegram AutoFest hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday and 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Sunday. Each day’s admission ticket will give access to all activities on that particular day including the Pate Swap Meet, Leake Auction and the Legends and Bandolero races.
