Corvettes, be they ZR1s or Z06s, have always seemed to rule in Edmunds’ Burnout Super Tests.

Driver Josh Jacquot’s latest challenge in his continuing series featured the “old timer” 2012 ZR1 against the “young whippersnapper” 2013 SRT Viper.

A Real Commemorative Edition

David E. Davis - A Real Commemorative Edition

The other day I was researching an article about the upcoming Scottsdale auctions when I happened across a consignment at Bonhams® for a 1962 Corvette, an unadorned little picture that most collectors, even Corvette collectors, might pass right on by without giving it another thought.

I mean, even if you were looking for a first generation Corvette (there are over sixty other C1′s from which to choose during auction week in Scottsdale) you probably wouldn’t have paused on this one. And a good automotive journalist would never look here for a story. A good automotive journalist would spend their time writing about more flashy and exciting big block L88′s or the gorgeous Regal Turquoise 1958 C1 belonging to GM CEO Dan Akerson. And why not, they are great cars and sure to draw the attention of any “Corvetter”.

I was talking to a friend the other day about the impending end of the C6 Corvette. We theorized where that last 2013 Corvette would turn up. What auction it may show up at, whose collection it could end up in, and what it options it would have. Coincidentally a new thread popped up on Corvette Forum last month inquiring as to the location of the last C3 Corvette. As it turns out, that’s the only “last” Corvette we can’t account for. We know where the last C1, C2, C4, and C5′s are, but where is 1982 Corvette VIN 25407?

Corvettes on Craigslist: 1978 4×4 Corvette

Corvettes on Craigslist: 1978 4x4 Corvette

My 13-year-old son loves Corvettes and four-wheel drive trucks. This Craigslist find is definitely right up his alley, but will someone who actually has a driver’s license feel the same love, enough to pay “a firm” $2,500 for this 1978 C3 that’s been raised off the ground and turned into a four-wheel driver.

Going to school every day is a cool ride these days for the automotive technology students at Trenton High School in Michigan.

They’re in the second year of restoring this yellow 1980 Corvette.

The students began work on the car during the 2011-12 school year after owner Jim Schneider, a 68-year-old Vietnam veteran, decided the Corvette would be better used as an instructional tool, rather than wasting away at his home.

A Moment of Reflection on the State of the Automobile & the Enthusiast

As car enthusiasts let’s take a few moments to reflect on the state of the automobile and what has become an avocation for most of us as we close out 2012 and enter 2013. Simply, we find ourselves surrounded by the fastest, best handling and most technically advanced performance cars ever produced. No doubt about it. For those of you whining over the “muscle car” era of the sixties and early seventies get over it, you’re showing your age! If you don’t know it, this is the real “muscle car” era and we should all realize it and be thankful for it.
