Great news! We’ve found yet another Corvette treasure on Craigslist. If you missed your chance to score the yellow C4 with a fake motor in the back and the Decepticons thwarted your attempted purchase of the Transformers inspired C6 you’ve still got a chance to take home a thoroughly modded Corvette. Tap the magical Read More button below to behold this bright yellow 1979 Corvette sporting the nose from Pontiac Vibe.
For many enthusiasts, the placement of the engine is one of the defining characterists on whether or not a sports car has achieved “super car status”. The Mid Engine/Rear Engine debate surrounding Corvettes has been going on now for some 30+ years and with every new announcement surrounding a next generation Vette, we seem to have this debate all over again.
But one ingenious C4 Corvette owner decided to skip that debate and have it both ways by installing a mock 350 V8 in the rear cargo area of a 1985 yellow Coup [sic]. If you love this idea, then the good news is that this Corvette can be yours as it’s now listed for sale on Craigslist.
Talk about your extremes. Elsewhere on this website, you have read about one-owner 1960 Corvettes that are as stock and original as they come. Then we have this 1960 model owned by Gary Kuck, which has been transformed from a basket case with no engine and a mangled front clip into a wild one-of-a-kind custom.
Mecum’s 26th annual Spring Classic auction kicks off next week in Indianapolis. One of the stars of the weekend will be this 1974 Motion Can Am Spyder from the Dan McMichael collection.

Here’s some eyecandy from our friends at D2FORGED who hit us up on twitter yesterday to share these pics of a Pewter C5 Corvette Convertible riding on their CV2 concave wheels.

Corvette enthusiasts have the chance to buy one rare C6 on eBay Motors right now.

Only seven of the cars have been produced, and the one up for sale is only the second one to be offered publicly for sale.
The folks at Jalopnik run a regular feature called “Nice Price or Crack Pipe,” which aims to get its viewers’ thoughts on certain, uh, different vehicles.
Recently, the site asked its viewers to rate this, uh, different 1976 Corvette Stingray that to some may represent all that was wrong with that decade of styling excess.
Great news for Indy 500 Corvette pace car fans. Autoweek is claiming that the 2014 Corvette Stingray will be the pace car for the Greatest Spectacle in Racing and they say they have the spy photos to prove it. The photos show a specially-equipped Laguna Blue 2014 Corvette Stingray with safety lights testing at the Milford Proving Grounds.
The National Corvette Museum’s Bash kicks off later this week and one of the special events happening over the three-day event is the raffle of this Velocity Yellow 2013 Corvette 427 Convertible tribute to Andy Pilgrim, who was inducted into the Corvette Hall of Fame last September.
