Corvettes on eBay: “Murdered Out” 2004 Corvette Z06

Corvettes on eBay: Murdered Out 2004 Corvette Z06

One of the things I love about Corvettes is that you can learn something new every day about them as well as how they fit it to all different niches of America’s car culture in general. For me, today’s lesson comes from the term “Murdered Out” which the Urban Dictionary describes as a vehicle that is black with black wheels and looks very intimidating. So I think you’ll agree this 2004 Matte-Black Corvette Z06 easily fits that description.

The Dragon Vette Continues its Evolution

Remember the world’s worst custom painted Corvette, the Dragon Vette? Apparently it has undergone several more transformations and is now Atomic Orange with a Black tail and wheels. Is it me, or is all that paint turning the Corvette into a wide-body?

This custom C3 Corvette looks like the perfect vehicle to take to the beach for a little fishing, doesn’t it? Or, for just cruising down the street and watching people do double-takes. If you live around Ocean City, NJ, you’re probably familiar with Dewey Powell and his 4-wheel drive Corvette. Powered by a dual-quad 392 Hemi, the Corvette rides on the chassis of a 1969 Corvette while the body was donated from a 1981 Corvette.

Battlestar Galactica C5 Corvette is One Hot Mess

Battlestar Galactica C5 Corvette is One Hot Mess

The builder of this hot mess that was once a C5 Corvette Convertible appears to have spared no expense in bringing his vision of the sci-fi show Battlestar Galactica to the roads of Istanbul, Turkey. With all that custom body work, the massive wing held down by 20 bolts, and the Zonda-style exhaust, the finishing touch is the Battlestar Galactia sticker on the rear. Now, if I remember the TV show correctly, Apollo and Starbuck flew “Vipers” but why get hung up on semantics. Those with weak constitutions or acid reflux issues should turn away now.

Corvettes on CraigsList: 1958 Bondo Custom Roadster

Corvettes on Craigs List: 1958 Bondo Custom Roadster

The description calls this Corvette a “very unique find” and I think most of us would agree that it should have stayed lost. The same family in Tennessee has had the Corvette since 1968 and in 1972 they added the custom nose and bondo-crafted rear flares. The front actually looks like the 1958 Corvette XP-700 concept that was penned by Chuck Jordan, the GM head of design who passed away last week. Unfortunately, that’s all that this craigslist special has in common with XP-700.

Rick Springfield's 1965 Corvette Sting Ray

Here’s musician/actor Rick Springfield running errands around Malibu in what looks to be a modified 1963 Corvette. That wide stance and thick rubber on the rear makes me think resto-mod. The passenger side mirror add-on is a nice touch too. Hmmm, Jessie’s girl or a ’63 Sting Ray?
