Michigan Corvette Owner Readyto Show His Custom 1981 Corvette at Saginaw's Old Town Motorfest

Matt Rodriguez made it back more than 40 years ago from Vietnam, where he worked as a crew chief on a chopper.

After he returned to the States in 1970, he began a 30-year career with General Motors in the tool and dye department. That’s when he also started his long love affair with Corvettes, picking up a used 1968 model that he later sold to buy a new 1980.

“When you are young, everyone wants a Corvette, and I had an opportunity,” Rodriguez said.

Buy This Artwork for $150,000 and Get a Free 1963 Corvette Split-Window Coupe

Back in the early 1980s, I was stuck with an old Buick that I tried to sell for months for $500. I finally got so desperate that I ran a humorous ad hoping for a response, something along the lines of: “Free 1979 Buick, with purchase of $500 watermelon.” I finally sold the car for $300 but left it running outside the tire store where the new owner picked it up. I was afraid it might not crank again and he’d call off the deal.

Now, fast forward to 2013, and this offer we bring you today is so-o-o-o-o much better. If you buy this beautiful abstract 40×60 painting of a blue 1963 Corvette by Timothy Raines, you get a real Split Window Coupe for free!

[VIDEO] Chevrolet Rewards MLB All-Star Mariano Rivera with a 2014 Corvette Stingray

Last night at the Major League Baseball All Star game at Citi Field, the Yankees relief pitcher Mariano Rivera did what he’s been doing for the last 15 years – closing out games. Entering the game and taking the mound in the 8th inning to the tune of “Enter Sandman“, the reliever shut down the National League and helped the American League win the mid-summer classic for the first time since 2009.

For his efforts, Mo Rivera was awarded the Ted Williams MVP award and takes home the keys to a Lagnua Blue 2014 Corvette Stingray.
