We’ve apparently learned the fate of at least one of the eight Corvettes swallowed up by the sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum in February.
The museum has announced that the 2009 Blue Devil ZR1 prototype – the property of General Motors and among the least damaged by the sinkhole – will be heading back to GM for restoration after the NCM’s upcoming 20th anniversary celebration on Labor Day weekend. No one has said where the Blue Devil will be displayed after repairs are made.
Over the last six decades, Chevrolet has produced seven different iterations of the Corvette. Some of the designs have been called revolutionary like the C2 years while others have more or less evolved from the previous generation like C5 to C6.
eBay Motors found a cool way to illustrate the design changes the Corvette has undergone over the last 60 years by showing an animation that morphs from the C1′s 1953 Corvette all the way through to the C7 2014 Corvette Stingray.
Robert Drayton is a happy fellow these days.
After receiving a phone call earlier this month telling him that his ticket was chosen in the 26th Annual Classic Corvette Giveaway from Saint Bernard Parish and School, Drayton made the 800+ mile trek from New Jersey to Rockport, Indiana to pick up his prize – a fuel injected 1957 Corvette roadster.
Terry Michaelis’, number 27 1953 NASCAR Corvette has won again, though this time not on the race track but on the show field at the 36th Annual Concours d’Elegnace of America at the Inn at St. Johns in Plymouth, Michigan. After winning two awards at Cincinnati’s Ault Park Concours, a 1st in Class in the Racing Division and the Bill Rudd “Best Vette” Trophy, the Michigan concours added another ribbon in the “Racing Through the Ages” category. Michaelis, president of ProTeam Corvette, has been campaigning the historic blue-ribbon 1953 Corvette race car at concours and shows throughout the country since ProTeam completed the restoration late last year.
Last weekend we made a run down to CORSA Performance’s corporate headquarters in Berea, Ohio to take in their 12th annual Corvettes at CORSA show. Rain threatened, but never materialized which made for a dry, yet hot and muggy Midwestern summer day for roughly 250 Corvette owners. Read on to see more from this year’s show.
It’s the last Friday in July which means its “Black Friday” here at CorvetteBlogger.com. Here’s our salute to Black Corvettes with a random photo gallery made up of 30 Corvettes spanning seven generations.
Who says the news is always bad?
For a Corvette enthusiast in Calgary, Canada, what started as a sad story wound up having a very happy ending.
We asked you a few days ago to be on the lookout for a red on red 1962 Corvette convertible that was stolen July 13 from a parking lot near Kenneth Jelley’s apartment.
Some people say locks just keep honest people out.
The 73-year-old owner of a red 1962 Corvette convertible wouldn’t argue with that.
Kenneth Jelley’s classic ‘Vette was locked, covered with a tarp, and parked outside in its parking space in the 9600 block of Bonaventure Drive SE, Calgary, Canada.
If you found a tattered classic car in a barn, would you leave it like it is or restore it to like-new condition?
Both options obviously have their pluses and minuses.
Today, we hear from someone who is happy he chose the first option.
