Historic 1963 Corvette Z06 Race Car Invited to the Concours d'Elegance of America

This year the prestigious Concours d”Elegance of America is taking place on Sunday, July 28, at the Inn at St. John’s in Plymouth, Michigan, and has a special category in recognition of the fiftieth anniversary of the 1963 Corvette.

Two of the six 1963 Corvettes in the Corvette Category will be Z06 race cars. Perhaps the star of the entire event will be the Z06 originally owned and raced by Dick Lang with an impressive and storied race history from the early and mid 1960′s when the car took on the legendary Shelby Cobras which were terrorizing the race tracks.

Motor Trend Takes A Closer Look at Howard Weaver's Car Collection

Some people have had car collecting in their blood ever since they can remember. Howard Weaver of Ann Arbor, Michigan is one of those people.

In fact, after 77 years of doing so, Weaver has probably been collecting cars maybe longer than anybody in the United States. A little qualifier on that status: Weaver’s dad actually is the one who paid $50 for a 1931 American Austin in 1936 when little Howard was just 6 years old. That two-passenger coupe later became Howard’s first car, and he still has it along with many other outstanding vehicles in a series of four heated barns on his property. That car was the impetus for a lifetime of collecting cars.

Sometimes a car is more than a car. Take Larry Clement’s 1963 Corvette convertible, for example.

A member of the Class of ’63 at Newton High School in Newton, Iowa, Larry brought the Corvette to their 50th reunion in June, and it immediately became a symbol of the successes enjoyed by the class in 1963 and ever since, including his two close friends, Tom Ross and Jim Getz.
