A couple weeks back we previewed the Corvettes being offered at RM’s Arizona sale later this month: Part 1 and Part 2. We thought we’d build on that preview and include all of the Corvettes crossing the auction block this month. RM’s event is just one of 8 significant collector car auctions taking place in the annual January sales frenzy. Over 300 Corvettes will cross the block in search of new homes.
