Check out Some Great Chevy Muscle Cars from GM Oktoberfest

Held the first weekend in October, the GM Oktoberfest, sponsored by National Parts Depot (NPD), attracts GM-powered vehicles from throughout the Southeast.

With NPD recognizing the importance of meeting and getting feedback from their customers, this is a great opportunity for them to reach out and stay on top of the latest automotive trends.

The 2015 GM Oktoberfest was held at Florida’s oldest nature park, Silver Springs. It’s been fascinating tourists since the 1870s when crude, glass-bottom boats were created from dugout canoes. Tourists are still intrigued by the crystal clear, Silver River aquifer, although modern, non-polluting electric riverboats have replaced the canoes.

This year’s event attracted more than 425 of GM’s finest. Preregistered vehicles, 1989 or older were admitted free while vehicles 1990 or newer paid a modest $10 parking fee that went directly to support Silver Springs.

NPD expands the Saturday-only show with a Friday morning caravan, which tours Ocala’s scenic horse country and arrives at Florida’s historic Cedar Key. Later, NPD opened its doors to their fabulous collection of more than 200 vehicles. The real excitement, however, begins Saturday with cars and trucks filling the Silver Springs Nature Park. With no tech inspections or judging teams to wait for, the emphasis was on camaraderie and car talk, as awards were determined by people’s choice.

Lee Henson’s striking 1969 Camaro SS Chevy High Performance cover car, (April, 2013) and Ed Schreck’s sleek Chevelle ( Super Chevy, July 2015) were some of the automotive royalty that attended the event, while Best of Show went to Gary Barrett and his beautifully customized 1958 Chevrolet Cameo pickup.

Every year GM and NPD put on this great event, and this year’s show was no exception. Go to nationalpartsdepot.com for more information.
