CHAMPAIGN -- Friday, the University of Illinois campus will be filled with shiny Corvettes. But, many people started revving up Thursday night. Dozens of Corvette lovers went to an outdoor concert at Old Chicago. It's the first in a long weekend of events.

The Bloomington Gold Corvette Show starts Friday and ends Sunday, but people say it's not just about celebrating the car. It's the car bringing people together as strangers and making them friends.
