Last week, Chevrolet confirmed that 900 of the 3,000+ U.S. dealerships have met the qualifications to sell the 2014 Corvette Stingray when it becomes available in late summer. Dealers had to qualify to sell the Stingray by selling at least four Corvettes in 2012.

Chevrolet has been trying for generations to sell Corvettes in Europe, but no matter how good the C5 and C6 were, they didn’t seem to hit it off with overseas buyers – at least in large numbers.
With the much-improved seventh-generation Stingray, Chevy obviously feels it has done its homework and has turned the C7 into a true world-class sports car, complete with a sophisticated and classy interior.

In our daily search of interesting Corvette news comes this classified ad we found on FreeTruckShopper.com. Now many will do anything to get a Corvette and often those transactions are made by trade or barter instead of cash. So if you’re in the Lexington, KY area and own a dump truck or a backhoe, then this clean 1985 Corvette could be yours.

From the “Why didn’t I think of that?” category comes the following story.
Seems Roy El-Rayes of Texas wanted to buy a Corvette Z06 (who wouldn’t?), but like all good husbands, he knew he had to run it by the boss first so he created a 13-slide presentation to make his case to his wife.

We got a great new Corvette owner story from Corvette sales specialist Mike Furman at Criswell Corvette. Mike shared with us a note he received from Air Force Colonel Gordy “Fuze” Dexter, a combat pilot with 200 missions under his belt who has also won Top Gun 17 times. Mike was able to put Gordy into a Cyber Gray 2013 Corvette 427 and let’s just say the Colonel is impressed!

Earlier today Chevrolet announced the 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible would be revealed in Geneva on March 5th. We also learned that when the new Stingray Convertible returns to the States, one of the first visits will be the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Palm Beach. It is there that we will witness
Rick Hendrick buying up the auction of the very first retail VIN Convertible with the proceeds going once again to charity.

One of the most iconic Corvette designs of all time is the 1963 Split Window Corvette Coupe. 1963 was the first year for a fixed roof coupe for Corvette and it was also the only year that the rear window was separated into two. It is sought after by collectors everywhere and always generates a crowd when a special one is available for sale.
And when we say special, its no wonder that collector John Justo had this ’63 Split Window as the crown jewel in his collection. An unrestored original with a mere 5,500 miles on the odometer, its also the winner of the most prestigious awards in the Corvette hobby.
