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.
What a weekend it was for Corvette!
Not only did the Corvette Racing team finish second and third in the GT class in Sunday’s Twelve Hours of Sebring competition, but Corvette capped that success by being inducted into the Sebring Hall of Fame.
And who can argue with the choice?
Want to buy the house where Corvette Chief Engineer Dave McClellan has resided for the past 42 years?
McClellan and his wife Glenda, in an aim to downsize now that he is 75 and she is 69, have their Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired estate on 12 acres up for sale for $589,900, the Detroit Free Press reports.
If you happen to see a pink 1984 Corvette rolling down the road in the Ohio area in the next few months, you can be sure that it’s probably the PinkVette that aims to raise at least $20,000 for the Meadville Medical Center’s Yolanda G. Barco Oncology Institute in Ohio.
Although Corvette first made its introduction in January 1953 at the GM Motorama in New York City, the concept that took the country by storm – codenamed EX-122 – was actually built in 1952. Sixty years later, Chevrolet is planning to celebrate the occasion with events worldwide. Once of those celebrations is being planned when Chevrolet returns to the United Kingdom for the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
After 50 years, a Michigan man is finally letting someone else take care of one of the loves of his life. Jim Liedel is selling the 1954 Corvette that’s he’s owned since 1962!
“I’m 68 years old,” Liedel tells the Monroe News. “I’m not a kid anymore. I’ve had my fun.”
Happy days are here again, at least for workers at the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
Folks like Todd Largent, who was laid off 3½ years ago, and other workers with recall rights, are being summoned back to work just in time for the seventh generation of America’s sports car expected to arrive next year.
Road & Track magazine has been testing Corvettes ever since the first one was built nearly 60 years ago.
But they may have outdone themselves with their current test of “every last single solitary new Corvette you can possibly buy. Or at least every version with a 6-speed manual and lots of options.”
The beauty of the Chevrolet Corvette has been captured by many photographers for the past 60 years, but a slick video of a red 1969 Stingray on the creative website called Vimeo lifts the game to a brand new level.
