The class of 2013 was revealed last week and will be formally honored June 28-30, 2013 at the Bloomington Gold show in Champaign, Illinois. The 4th class of cars includes the first 327 Corvette, the first big block Corvette, and a pair of powerhouse C6’s. The diverse list of people and organizations consists of the godfather of the Corvette, the founder of Carlisle Events, and the Flying Dentist.

For the guy that wants the great looks and curves that late C3 Corvettes are known for, but still wants to maintain that “I can go anywhere” mentality that a four-wheel drive vehicle offers no matter what the road conditions are, I present to you this 1980 Corvette 4×4 that was recently spotted for sale on Craigslist.

Fitch died in the early morning hours of October 31, 2012. He was 95 years old.

Back in the first part of 2011, ProTeam Corvette Sales posted an article on their website seeking more information on Dick Lang’s 1963 Corvette Z06 racer which they had recently discovered. After several months and a $224,000 Nabers Brothers restoration, they unveiled the recently completed car last weekend during a NCRS-sponsored Corvette Seminar at their Napoleon, Ohio facility. This was the first time it had been seen by the public since being returned to its Daytona racing livery.
