The sheer number of vehicles for sale on eBay is impressive of course, but the incredible variety that are for sale never ceases to amaze. If you are a Corvette fan of a certain age that never missed Speed Racer, eBay has the car to satisfy your wildest fantasy — a Speed Racer Mach 5 replica based on a 1981 Corvette.
If there is one constant fact in our hobby, it’s that everybody needs insurance for the their Corvette. But not all insurance policies have the best interests of the insured in mind so let’s talk with the experts about Corvette and collector car insurance.
It’s the final Friday in the month of January and that means it’s time for the first “Black Friday” gallery of 2015 here at CorvetteBlogger.com. So here’s a random photo gallery made up of 33 Corvettes spanning seven generations that are all dressed in Black and looking ready to put a beat down on the competition.
Three individuals who have contributed to the success of Corvette during the past 50-plus years will be honored for their overwhelming dedication and love for America’s Sports Car when they are inducted into the Corvette Hall of Fame this fall.
It’s hard to think of three individuals who are more deserving of this honor than these three men, who have gone above and beyond in their love for the Corvette.
The 2015 inductees slated to be honored at the 18th Annual Corvette Hall of Fame Ceremony on Sept. 4 at the National Corvette Museum are Herb Fishel in the category of Racing, Rick Hendrick in the category of Enthusiast, and Russ McLean in the category of GM/Chevrolet.

If you happen to be in the Land Down Under, you might be on the lookout for a stolen 1999 Corvette.
The black convertible, along with a white 1965 Ford Mustang Fastback, Land Down Underwere stolen from a “panel beating workshop” – as they apparently call a body shop down there – in Melbourne, Australia.

Helping the team of Jan Magnussen and Antonio Garcia win last weekend’s Rolex 24 at Daytona apparently has iced another race for Ryan Briscoe.
Autosport is reporting that Briscoe has been tapped to compete again with Corvette Racing in the Le Mans World Endurance Championship in June, though official confirmation isn’t expected until Feb. 5 when the entry list will be released.
Briscoe himself is remaining quiet about the decision, saying only that “hoped to go back” to compete in Le Mans.
One of our favorite Corvettes shows we attend religiously is the annual NCRS Winter Regional in Central Florida. This year, the show was held at the Sun ‘n Fun facility in Lakeland, Florida which is a working airport and the site of a huge annual fly-in.
The new location had its good and bad points, but overall we were positive about it as it was a great facility for hosting the Winter Regional Corvette show.
When Tadge Juechter and his crew were busy coming up with the 2015 Corvette Z06, they were probably hoping for somebody just like Gene Sanchez Leeds to climb behind the wheel.
You see, Mr. Leeds does “ridiculous things with Corvettes,” as he puts it in his blog post on Road and Track.
Put another way, he doesn’t park his Corvettes on a pedestal, instead preferring to enjoy them, and enjoy them HIS way.
