Well, it looks like you can write off Cyber Gray, Crystal Red and Jetstream Blue as colors available for the 2011 Corvette. Jetstream Blue was already being phased out of this year’s remaining 2011 production, but the earthquake and resulting tsunami in Japan has affected several other colors that have automakers scrambling. And now we are hearing that customers with existing Corvette orders in the system are being asked to choose new colors.

I often preach the importance of documentation when purchasing a classic Corvette because those documents (invoices, tank stickers, build sheets and protect-o-plates) play a key role in determining the value of your car. Unfortunately, that documentation is not available for every Corvette out there and so the only option owners had in tracing the lineage of their Corvette was through previous owners. This fall, the National Corvette Restorers Society (NCRS) announced that through a partnership with the General Motors Heritage Center, it can offer members a new service that confirms the original delivery dealer as well as validate any GM documents you do have.

I just got word from Terry Michaelis at ProTeam Corvettes about the return of their popular year-end sale. Terry has slashed the pricing on ProTeam’s classic Corvette collection as well as the his Personal Reserve Collection which contains some of the most sought-after Corvettes ever made. This is your last opportunity in 2010 to save thousands on a great Corvette.

Our favorite non-original L88 Shriner Corvette is back on the market again. The 1967 “L88″ Shriner COPO Corvette crossed the block at Mecum’s St. Charles auction on Saturday where it reached a high bid of $80,000 but failed to reach its reserve price. Longtime readers of CorvetteBlogger may recognize this as the same car whose listing on eBay in December 2005 was pulled after the Corvette community challenged the sale as a real-deal L88 Corvette.

No longer will customers be in the dark about the status of their new Corvette order. GM has introduced a new “Track Your Order” feature to allow customers to view the relative status of their Corvette or any other Chevrolet order. In addition to the event status, a representation of the customer’s Corvette will be displayed with the majority of the accessories/options rendered.
