Want to purchase the GTE-Pro class-winning Corvette C6R from last year’s 24 hours of Le Mans? Well too bad, you can’t have that one, but can take home this yellow 2006 Z06 that’s decked out as tribute to Team Corvette’s epic triumph in France last summer.
An email we received tonight from a reader named Don Leblanc:
Attached is a photo of a watercolor painting I recently did. It doesn’t really have a name, other than just “C6″. I would like to share this with other Corvette fans.
Thanks again CorvetteBlogger.
Nice work Don. Thanks for sharing!

Last year we had the opportunity to help the Saint Bernard Catholic Church in Southern Indiana get the word out about their annual Corvette fundraiser and we’re pleased to announce the details of their new 2012 Classic Corvette giveaway. The annual raffle is an important fundraiser as it provides much needed funds for the Church’s school and daycare programs in Rockport. So without further ado, this year’s Saint Bernard giveaway is a big block powered 1966 Nassau Blue Corvette convertible.
