Artist David Mills creates this awesome Corvette-themed artwork and while we’re sure it took him hours upon hours to finish, thanks to time lapse video, we can see how it all comes together under six minutes. One of the interesting features is the use of illustrations from our friend K. Scott Teeters at the Illustrated Corvette Series.
Back in October, we brought you news that a Corvette dealer in the Northeast has just acquired a 13-mile 1978 Corvette Pace Car that had been stored in a barn since the day the original purchaser bought the car. With 33 years of dust and dirt on the black and silver paint, pictures of the car went viral and news of the find spread around the world. Now we got word that the Corvette has been washed and sold.

Here’s a sad sight for any Corvette lover. These pictures, posted on the Corvette Forum, show a 1963 Split Window Coupe that appears to have been stripped and forgotten.

Russo and Steele Collector Car Auctions has announced that this 1953 Corvette owned by Corvette restoration guru Noland Adams will cross the auction block next month at their Scottsdale event which runs from January 18th – 22nd.

First, the good news: there’s apparently only one of these monstrosities. The bad news is everything else. The Eldorette is a combination of C3 Corvette and Cadillac Eldorado, and perfectly illustrates that some things – handguns and tequila, for example – just shouldn’t be put together. The seller claims over $200K was dumped into the construction, which is as crazy as it is sad.
