Lawrence Welk Edition C5 Corvette Shows Unique Features

Here is one customized Corvette you won’t see a SEMA. With the demographics of Corvette owners trending older, I’m sure this won’t be the last Corvette to feature a scooter carrier. Hands down, the kicker of the photo is the “BYE” handicap vanity license plate which shows the owner not only has their faculties, but a keen sense of humor as well.

What Have You Hauled In, On or With Your Corvette?

C4 Corvette Gets Luggage Rack Upgrade

Admit it. Most of us that drive our Corvettes regularly have had the experience of having to transport a bulky item and your Corvette is the only car available. Others choose to do by towing campers or small trailers. I came across this enterprising owner this weekend traveling south on I75 in Ocala, Florida with a solution to storage space or lack thereof in an early C4 Corvette. The best part of this solution? He was doing an easy 80 mph and the heavy traffic was no problem for the less than aerodynamic Greenwood-kitted Corvette.

Last Baldwin-Motion Phase III GT Corvette Found

Last Baldwin-Motion Phase III GT Corvette Found

Joel Rosen’s east coast-based Motion Performance Speed Shop was legendary for building unbeatable muscle cars in the Sixties and seventies. Teaming up with Baldwin Chevrolet, customers could order a Corvette which would be torn down and rebuilt into an 11.5 second drag car, complete with factory warranty.

One the creations of Rosen was the Phase III GT which made its debut at the International Auto Show in New York City in April, 1969. Motion Performance would build just 12 of the 500+ horsepower grand touring Corvettes with the last one leaving the shop in 1971. That last Phase III GT Corvette was recently purchased from the family of the original owner and has been restored back to original condition and will be displayed at the Muscle Car & Corvette Nationals in November.

1959 Corvette Barn Car Found in Wisconsin

by Keith Cornett on September 21, 2010

1959 Corvette Barn Car

Here is a fairly original 1959 Corvette that was stored away in a barn somewhere in Wisconsin since the mid-sixties. The Corvette was recently willed to a nephew following the death of the owner and the nephew’s friend shared these pictures on the Corvette Forum. Many times, we’ll see barn cars only after they’ve been pulled out of their cocoon so it’s great to see the new owner documenting the classic C1 straight-axle in its surroundings where its been stored for 40+ years.
