At the conclusion of the National Corvette Museum’s annual Bash event, the Lagnua Blue Corvette Stingray Coupe and the Night Race Blue Convertible were taken outside and loaded onto an auto transporter for destinations unknown. We were still at the NCM just after 5pm on Saturday when we noticed the staff was preparing to move the Corvettes. Lucky for us, we caught the whole event on video.
When Bob Martin got the news he had prostate cancer in 2000, he decided it was time to fulfill a lifelong dream and finally buy a Corvette.
And boy, what a Corvette he found!
Thanks to the kind folks at ProTeamCorvette.com and owner Terry Michaelis, Bob soon became the owner of a 1967 big block roadster once owned by music legend Roy Orbison.
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.
Misty Davis’ dad would no doubt be proud to see what she and the Corvette community in the Carolinas are doing with his 1975 Stingray.
Claude Mathis Jr., died unexpectedly last August at age 61, leaving an unexpected legacy to his 34-year-old daughter.
She inherited his white on blue Corvette, which was in pieces while it was being restored by her father.
Last year Adam’s Polishes was named the officially licensed car care products for the Corvette and Camaro. When we heard that founder and CEO Adam Pitale would be giving a free detailing seminar on site at the Lingenfelter Collection outside Detroit, we had to add the event to our weekend agenda.
It’s that time of year again to talk about Saint Bernard’s Classic Corvette Giveway. This is the 25th anniversary for the classic Corvette raffle and all proceeds benefit the Saint Bernard Church and School in Rockport, Indiana. While the last couple of years have featured a midyear Corvette as the grand prize, this year’s raffle is for a 1960 Horizon Blue Corvette Roadster.
Jerry and Felicia Mulick of Illinois have the best of both worlds with their Marina Blue 1967 Corvette convertible.
They’ve got the classic looks of what some consider one of the most beautiful cars ever made, but raise the hood and you’ll see that they’ve got the modern convenience of a powerful C6 LS2 V8 engine that cruises down the interstate sipping a gallon about every 30 miles.
Hotrod.com has a great story on its site about a true Corvette pioneer – none of that sissy trailer queen stuff for Eric Rickman.
He worked as a photographer for HOT ROD magazine from 1951 to 1992 and did a great job covering the hot rodding world back in those early days.
HOT ROD shared the story of Rickman’s beloved 1954 Corvette that definitely didn’t live a pampered life – but lived a full one before going out in a blaze of glory – literally. More on that later.
After reading this enthusiast’s informative but highly complex story on eBay, we can understand why so many Corvette owners don’t bother to wave anymore.
