The sports car world was changed forever on June 30, 1953 at a temporary automobile facility in Flint, Michigan. That’s when the first completed examples of Chevrolet’s all new 2-seat roadster called the Corvette cruised off the line assembly line and into the hearts of America where would it remain for the next 61 years.
Some folks believe you shouldn’t mess with a C1 Corvette.
Just leave it the way it came from the factory, they say.
Others, like the owner of this 1959 model, don’t see anything wrong with making a few changes, especially when taking advantage of modern amenities.
Great news for Corvette enthusiasts in Canada. Chevrolet in Canada has announced that Canadian buyers of the new Corvette Stingray are now eligible to attend the Stingray School at Ron Fellows Performance Driving School in Nevada. The two-day Stingray School is $1,000 USD which is a $1,500 discount off the standard driving school rate.
We’ve all got our childhood memories of Corvettes.
For instance, I remember a fellow who ran the local feed and seed store in my hometown, pulling into the grocery store where I worked as a teenager in a brand new silver 1974 Corvette.
Man, I thought he had the ultimate car back then! While some folks would label the mid-1970s as a bad time for Corvette, for me, they’re still as beautiful as the day they were made.
Don’t look now, but it’s already the last weekend in June! To us Corvette folks that means one thing – it’s time for another installment of Bloomington Gold. The 42nd annual Bloomington Gold Corvette Show takes place this Friday, June 27th through Sunday the 29th. 2014 marks the second year on the University of Illinois campus in Champaign.
To say that eBay has been a boon to those who are perennial car-lookers, like most of us Corvette fans, is overstating the obvious. You just never know what you’re going to find.
For instance, a currently running auction on eBay is offering a 1969 Riverside Gold Corvette convertible in survivor condition showing only 51,089 miles “that is believed to be original” in the ad’s words, being sold by the guys at the Gas Monkey Garage featured on the TV show Fast N’ Loud.
It’s that time of year again!
This Friday marks the 14th Annual “Drive Your Corvette to Work Day”. Will you be driving your Corvette to work?
