This classic Corvette owner wins the internet today with this picture of him hauling a helicopter. Pretty sure if you look up the definition of “baller”, this would be the pic shown…
One of our favorite things to do at the major Corvette shows is to walk both the show grounds and parking lots to look at the fun, witty and personality-descriptive vanity license plates that are adorned on America’s favorite sports cars.
We maintain the theory that there are two types of vanity plates. The first type describes the car while the second type is more focused on the owner. Lucky for us, Bloomington Gold offers a target rich environment where both types are on display.
Here’s your chance to support a great cause and maybe win a classic Corvette. This Sunday, a winner will be drawn in the 26th Annual Saint Bernard’s Classic Corvette Giveaway with the grand prize being a Red 1957 fuel injected Corvette. But you can’t win unless your name is on the ticket!
Happy Birthday, America!
In celebration of the 4th of July, here’s a special gallery of patriotic Corvettes. So sit back and enjoy the Corvette-fueled fireworks as we bring you 36 Corvettes dressed or surrounded by Old Glory.
One of the great aspects of the Bloomington Gold show each year is seeing the rarest of the rare Corvettes. You never know what’s going to show up on that last weekend in June. This year’s big surprise was 1953 Corvette VIN 009. That’s right, the 9th Corvette ever built. It was being displayed for the first time since being discovered in Oregon in 2010.
The 2014 edition of The Granddaddy of all Corvette shows, Bloomington Gold, took place last weekend in Champaign, Illinois. This year was the show’s the second year on the University of Illinois campus in Champaign. Our super fantastic photo gallery from the event awaits you after the break.
The sports car world was changed forever on June 30, 1953 at a temporary automobile facility in Flint, Michigan. That’s when the first completed examples of Chevrolet’s all new 2-seat roadster called the Corvette cruised off the line assembly line and into the hearts of America where would it remain for the next 61 years.
Some folks believe you shouldn’t mess with a C1 Corvette.
Just leave it the way it came from the factory, they say.
Others, like the owner of this 1959 model, don’t see anything wrong with making a few changes, especially when taking advantage of modern amenities.
It’s Friday and we thought a gallery of Corvette images would be a cool way to wrap up the week. Here’s our salute to Black Corvettes with a random photo gallery made up of 32 Corvettes spanning seven generations.
If you’re looking for something a little unusual in the Corvette world, and you are handy with tools and know how to work with fiberglass, eBay may have your ideal car. It has a ’62 Corvette frame, a 350 cubic inch motor and a Muncie three-speed transmission. The body is a Centurion made by Fiberfab and if the shape of the body looks familiar to you, it should—it is a copy of Bill Mitchell’s 1959 Sting Ray racer.
