JOLIET, Ill., March 24, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Bill Jacobs Joliet, one of Chicagoland's premier Chevy dealers, has made its affinity for the Chevy Corvette known through the years.

One of those annual events is the Corvette Show and Swap Meet held at the dealership, which will take place April 6, 2014. Now in its 38th year, the meet allows those in the Chicagoland area to showcase their most prized Corvettes and also view and admire other Corvettes from the area. From classic and modified models to the all-new 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray, the event brings out some of the most impressive cars in Illinois.

The 2014 Corvette Show and Swap Meet is a lighthearted event for auto enthusiasts and Corvette fans, but it's also a competition between Corvette owners. With nine People's Choice Classes, three awards per class, the Bill Jacobs Jr. Memorial Award, and dash plaques for every entrant, those showcasing their cars in the contest will have a chance to claim their spot among the top Corvettes in the area.

Admission to the meet is just $5, but those looking to enter a car in the show are encouraged to do so before March 28, 2014. After that date, the cost of entering a Corvette in the meet will rise from $25 to $30.

Although many auto enthusiasts know Bill Jacobs Joliet for its performance car events, sponsorships, and charitable work in the community, others simply know it as Chicagoland's go-to Chevy dealer. As the dealership prepares for the arrival of the 2015 Chevy Colorado and Chevy Suburban, car shoppers can find some of the best deals of the year on 2013 and 2014 Chevy models.
