On Saturday, November 8th our friends at ProTeam Corvette Sales will be hosting a Corvette Technical seminar along with the National Corvette Restorers Society (NCRS). This year’s topic will be Corvette’s Performance Evolution. The all-day seminar is open to both NCRS members and the general public. The $25 admission fee includes both breakfast and lunch.
It’s the last Friday of the month and that means it’s time for “Black Friday” here at CorvetteBlogger.com. Our family has owned a black Corvette Sting Ray for almost five decades and so the most sinister color of Corvette’s color palette is also our favorite. Here’s our salute to Black Corvettes with a random photo gallery made up of 37 Corvettes spanning seven generations.
If you can’t afford the real thing, this might be the next best thing.
The 1956 Chevrolet Corvette SR Prototype, also known as “The Real McCoy,” hammered for a cool $2.3 million* at Mecum Auctions back in January.
Now, this 2/3 replica, manufactured by well-respected Junior Replicas of Brazil, is currently available at Hemmings classifieds for a whole lot less – just $14,900.
Ocean City Corvette Club held their annual Corvettes on the Boardwalk show in Ocean City, New Jersey on Sunday, September 21st. Many thanks to our friend Monica Mayer @ CU~Through The Lens who offered us the opportunity to share some photos from the show.
Our Corvette friends who have attended this show say it’s one of their favorites and it sure does look like a cool event they way it’s presented.

Doug Kinsman was just following orders when one of the judges at a prestigious car show asked him to see if the windshield washers worked on his 1962 Corvette.
Kinsman’s car was being judged last month at Cobble Beach when judge John Ballard requested the operation of the washers.
Kinsman had never tried them so he said he didn’t know if they would work or not.
He soon found out that they did squirt washer fluid, lots of it, in fact – just not in the right place.
Part of our responsibilities when covering Mid America Motorwork’s 2014 Corvette FunFest is the selection of a Corvette for our celebrity choice award. As we wandered Corvette FunFest’s back parking lot looking for the appropriate Corvette, we realized our work would be cut out for us. So many great Corvettes. So many great stories.
That’s when I spotted Mike McGuirk and his son Mike sitting behind a Honduras Maroon 1962 Corvette.
It’s the last Friday in September which means it’s “Black Friday” here at CorvetteBlogger.com. Here’s our salute to Black Corvettes with a random photo gallery made up of 32 Corvettes spanning seven generations.
Finally made it!
The theme for this year’s FunFest was “Vets with Vettes” and so not only was it great to see all the Corvettes out in the fields but to have the opportunity to talk with our nation’s veterans and see all the patriotic displays including the traveling Vietnam Veteran’s wall memorial was something we’ll never forget.
After giving initial signs a few months ago that a portion of the sinkhole would remain as a tourist attraction, the museum’s board of directors voted Saturday instead to fill the hole and restore the building to its previous condition.
