Archives: All-Chevy Father’s Day Weekend at Nuvali 2010

Father’s Day 2010 with my dad, Jimmy, and my then 5-year-old son, Chevy.

As we continued to clean the hard drive of our computer, we found more stories and photos of events that may prove interesting to car enthusiasts. In one file, we found a cool Father’s Day event organized by The Covenant Car Company, Incorporated (TCCCI), the Philippine distributor of Chevrolet automobiles. On June 19 to 20, 2010, TCCCI came out with an all-Chevrolet car show entitled “All-Chevy Father’s Day Weekend at Nuvali”, which was held at the Nuvali grounds in Santa Rosa, Laguna.

TCCCI showcased their stock and racing 2010 Chevrolet Cruze.

Car-loving fathers and their families had a lot to see at the show, which featured classic Chevys and new Chevrolet models that were being marketed by TCCCI at the time.  There was a yellow 1950 Chevy Bel-Air convertible, which was lovingly called by its owner as the “Yellow Bird”.  My dad used to own a similar model, a 1952 Chevy Styline Deluxe two-door sedan, and he was glad to see the Yellow Bird.  There was a turquoise-and-ivory 1955 Bel-Air convertible that pleased the crowd while a classic red-and-white 1955 Bel-Air two-door hard top represented the era when Chevrolet first captured its youth market in the States.

For Impala lovers, there was a trio of land yachts – a 1963 Impala low-rider, a 1969 Impala sports coupe and a 1970 Impala 2-door hard top. For those who prefer trucking with Chevy, there were two vintage C-10 pickups – a 1968 and a 1969 – and both had stepside short beds.

For the “plastic fantastic” fanatics, on display were a red 1963 Corvette roadster, Toti de Leon’s Cortez Silver 1969 Corvette coupe, his brother, Boy de Leon’s sharp yellow 1970 Corvette coupe and a nice orange 1976 Corvette coupe.

For F-Body enthusiasts, there was a neat red 1967 Camaro coupe treated to a “restomod” or restoration and modification job; an orange 1968 Camaro coupe and another orange 1969 Camaro Rally Sport, also done in restomod. I displayed my own 1971 Camaro RS Z28, a tribute car that’s finished in Hugger Orange (Chevy’s official color in the ‘70s) with black Super Sport stripes.  While not exactly vintage, a 4th generation 1994 Camaro convertible added some modern sleekness to the affair.

The author with Chevy models and the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS

Of course, the latest Chevrolet models (during that time), like the Cruze, Aveo, Captiva, Tahoe and Suburban were also displayed but the centerpiece was the new and exciting 2010 Camaro.  It was a great day for daddies to bond with their families amidst a sea of eye-catching fine Chevrolet cars.

Other 2010 Chevrolet models were on display like the Suburban, Tahoe, Captiva, Cruze, etc.

I drove my 1971 Chevy Camaro RS Z28 Tribute on the Skyway…

… had it washed, waxed and detailed before the show…

… had my parents, Jimmy and Norma, and my then 10-year-old daughter, Vette, pose with it…

… while other dads take lots of photos. It was a great memorable Father’s Day 2010!
