Terry Michaelis’, number 27 1953 NASCAR Corvette has won again, though this time not on the race track but on the show field at the 36th Annual Concours d’Elegnace of America at the Inn at St. Johns in Plymouth, Michigan. After winning two awards at Cincinnati’s Ault Park Concours, a 1st in Class in the Racing Division and the Bill Rudd “Best Vette” Trophy, the Michigan concours added another ribbon in the “Racing Through the Ages” category. Michaelis, president of ProTeam Corvette, has been campaigning the historic blue-ribbon 1953 Corvette race car at concours and shows throughout the country since ProTeam completed the restoration late last year.

Though any car enthusiast worth their engine oil has heard about Detroit’s Woodward Dream Cruise and Flint’s Back to the Bricks show, surprisingly some Corvette enthusiasts do not realize the acclaimed Corvette specific events that are a part of both of these outstanding activities.

There’s gold to be found on eBay and I swear I get a funky feeling inside when I come across the occasional barn find on the auction website.
Here’s a one-owner 1966 Corvette big block that’s been tucked away in a barn since 1981. The owner passed away a couple years ago and now his widow is selling the property which forces the sale of the Sting Ray.

The storied Manchester United football club is in the States this week to take on the LA Galaxy in the Chevrolet Cup on Wednesday at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. Chevrolet is a major sponsor of the club, which is now proclaimed with the Chevy bow-tie appearing on the club’s uniforms.
