Welcome to the ‘Vette Vues Tri-Power Award: Honoring Exceptional Corvettes

Rooted in Tradition: Celebrating Excellence Since 2013

Established in 2013, the Vette Vues Tri-Power Award emerged as a testament to honoring the finest restored and original Corvettes within the automotive community. Over the years, this prestigious accolade has evolved into a revered symbol of excellence, recognizing vehicles that embody unparalleled levels of originality, meticulous restoration, and an unwavering commitment to preserving Corvette heritage. Since its inception, the Tri-Power Award has continued to set new standards, celebrating the pinnacle of Corvette craftsmanship and dedication to automotive excellence.

Upholding Authenticity: Certifications and Value

Certifying a Corvette parallels verifying the authenticity of a treasured artwork; it adds immense value. Events like Bloomington Gold Corvettes, NCRS Top Flight Judging, and Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals conduct exhaustive assessments—scrutinizing every facet from exterior to engine, validating a Corvette’s legitimacy. Achieving certifications like the N.C.R.S. Top Flight Award and Bloomington Gold Certified elevate a Corvette’s rank and worth, making it highly sought after at auctions.

The Benefits: Certification and Pride

Certification not only substantiates authenticity but also escalates a Corvette’s intrinsic value, positioning it favorably for resale. The joy of owning a certified Corvette resonates among enthusiasts, amplifying pride and recognition. For many owners, the certification process becomes a gratifying journey, celebrating their dedication to restoring these iconic vehicles.

Pursuing Excellence: The Tri-Power Award Journey

After attaining the N.C.R.S. Top Flight Award and Bloomington Gold Certified, the pursuit of prestigious accolades like the Triple Diamond Award and the coveted Vette Vues Magazine Tri-Power Award becomes attainable.

Vinnie Tortorella, esteemed for his expertise in Corvette restoration and as the Principal Owner of Muscle Cars of Texas, Inc., leads the Tri-Power Award’s judging. His authority ensures the highest evaluation standards, crucial for this esteemed recognition.

The Path to Triumph: Rigorous Evaluation
