Our friends at Hartland Auctions are hosting their first ever National Corvette Museum Auction this weekend in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Hartland expects about 300 cars for their inaugural event at the NCM. As we create this wonderful prose there are 50 Corvettes poised to cross the auction block as part of the 2 day docket which runs Saturday and Sunday June 13th and 14th.
With only 300 Corvettes made in the first year of production in 1953, not many of these historic treasures ever cross the auction block in a single year.
But this weekend could be your chance to own one as the 254th Corvette ever made will be up for auction at the first-ever Hartland Auctions sale at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Ky.
The Mecum auction is one of the main attractions at Bloomington Gold each year. This year over 100 Corvettes representing all 6 generations arrived in Champaign in search of new homes.

Read on to see the top 11 Corvette sales at the 2013 Mecum Bloomington Gold auction.
Great news! We’ve found yet another Corvette treasure on Craigslist. If you missed your chance to score the yellow C4 with a fake motor in the back and the Decepticons thwarted your attempted purchase of the Transformers inspired C6 you’ve still got a chance to take home a thoroughly modded Corvette.

Russo and Steele will be out in sunny southern California this weekend for their Newport Beach sale.

If you’re a big fan of the Transformers Corvette Stingray Coupe revealed in Chicago back in 2009, we have some good news and some bad news for you.
The bad news is that you can’t buy that particular car.
The good news is that apparently someone in Georgia liked the Stingray concept car so much that they went out and made one of their own – sort of.
For many enthusiasts, the placement of the engine is one of the defining characterists on whether or not a sports car has achieved “super car status”. The Mid Engine/Rear Engine debate surrounding Corvettes has been going on now for some 30+ years and with every new announcement surrounding a next generation Vette, we seem to have this debate all over again.
But one ingenious C4 Corvette owner decided to skip that debate and have it both ways by installing a mock 350 V8 in the rear cargo area of a 1985 yellow Coup [sic]. If you love this idea, then the good news is that this Corvette can be yours as it’s now listed for sale on Craigslist.
