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.
Mecum Auctions held their annual 2013 Spring Classic last month in Indianapolis. Over the course of the event, the Mecum team rolled 1,716 vehicles across the block. Of those, 1,156 were hammered sold for a 68% sell-through rate. We already told you about the black and blue 1967 convertible which sold for $610,000 to take top Corvette honors.

If there is one project we can really get behind, it’s this 2006 Corvette Z06 made to look like the #3 ALMS GT1 Corvette C.6R. We’ve seen this tribute to Corvette Racing’s 2008 season before when the car appeared at 2008′s SEMA show in Las Vegas. We were amazed then and that feeling returned seeing the familiar pictures of the #3 Corvette C6.R in street form. If you like it too and can cover the $80K opening bid, then the Corvette with the Jake Scrape can be yours!
