Diamonds in the Desert

Burke Chaplin’s ‘63 Corvette was the Best of Show Winner at the Diamonds in the Desert Charity Car and Bike Show Saturday.

LANCASTER – Dozens of classic, late model and custom corvettes were on display at the Jethawks Stadium Saturday as part of the 2nd Annual Diamonds in the Desert Car & Bike Show.

“We have about 75 to 80 cars in addition to Corvette Club Cars, which are probably another 20 or 30,” said John Parker, President of the Antelope Valley Corvette Club.

Norma Lozano and her husband Danny showed off his and her Corvettes.

For local Corvette owners, the event was a chance to showcase their prized possessions.

“We put in some time on our Corvettes so we figured we’d come out and show it off,” said Lancaster resident Danny Lozano. Lozana and his wife, Norma, came out in his and her Corvettes.

Eugene Jones came from Altadena to attend the event.

“I have a Z06 so I came out for the Corvette side of it,” he said.

Shiny chrome aside, the event was also for a good cause.

All proceeds raised will go to the local American Cancer Society. Last year, the event raised about $3,000. Parker says he hopes to beat that record this year.
