Corvette enthusiasts have known for years that the car can transport its owner to a magical world like no other.

Peter Haeckl became such a traveler many years ago even though he was thousands of miles away from the United States, living in his native Germany.

The Corvette Hobby Comes Together for the 7th Annual Corvettes for Chip

Article contributed by Lance Miller / Corvettes at Carlisle / Chip Miller Charitable Foundation

The Corvette hobby lost an amazing person in 2004. My father, Chip Miller passed away from a rare disease called amyloidosis. Shortly after his passing, my family and I decided to start the Chip Miller Charitable Foundation (CMCF) in his honor and to raise awareness of this terrible disease.

The Corvette hobby was and continues to be the driving force behind the efforts and mission of the CMCF. My father was not only a wonderful person; he was also a best friend and mentor to me and many of my friends. His loss affected me in many ways, but most importantly to follow his mantra of “Life is good!” He was an incredibly positive, caring and generous person and his passing made me realize just how precious every minute really is and to enjoy the time we have on this earth.

A rare 1957 Corvette featuring the 283/283 hp (RPO 579E) fuel injection sold for $290,000 at Mecum’s 2013 Dallas Auction.

This Onyx Black roadster is one of only 43 “airbox” Corvettes produced in 1957 which offered a new fuel injection system helping the 283 Cubic inch engine attain the mythical “one-horsepower-per-cubic-inch” threshold for the first time.

The ’57 Airbox Corvette was part of the Buddy Herin collection which also saw the record-breaking $3.2 million sale of the 1967 L88 Corvette Sting Ray at the same auction.

Visit CorvetteVideos.TV for the best selection of hand-picked Corvette videos.

 

The good news is that no one was injured.
