Mecum Auctions takes their quest to sell every car ever produced west this weekend for their inaugural Anaheim, California event. Around 70 Corvettes are up for adoption this Thursday through Saturday as part of the 800 car docket. You can watch 18 hours of live coverage of the event on Velocity.
A settlement has been reached in a New York case involving a man who bought a vintage C2 Corvette and wound up with $125,000 in the car, only to discover years later that the car’s VIN had been changed.
Robert C. Ernst of North Tonawanda, New York, bought the car in 2008 for about $50,000 from Ronald A. Ellis of Newfane, New York and then proceeded to put another $75,000 in an extensive restoration.
Craig Jackson of Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auctions recently had his garage featured on the TV show “Million Dollar Rooms”, which airs on HGTV. Craig’s museum-grade circular garage at his home in Paradise Valley, Arizona is fully stocked with some of the world’s coolest and most sought-after collector cars. But in this video, it’s the space they occupy that is really the star of the show.
One of the draws of SEMA is that you know you are going to see some cool custom cars and in our opinion, one of the best custom vettes on display at this year’s show was Rod Saboury’s 1963 Split Window Corvette he calls “Black Widow”. If Rod’s name rings a bell, it’s because Saboury was also the man behind the World’s fastest street Legal 1963 Corvette drag car which we featured just last month.
Our friends at ProTeam Corvette Sales will be hosting an all-day Corvette seminar and judging school on Saturday November 10th. The event is sponsored by the Michigan and Heart of Ohio chapters of the National Corvette Restorers Society (NCRS), although NCRS membership isn’t required to attend the event. The cost is just $10 at the door which includes breakfast and lunch. Enthusiasts under 35 years of age get in free.
Not many people have seen a 1963 Corvette Grand Sport in action, but the Simeone Automotive Museum in Philadelphia is offering enthusiasts just such a rare opportunity later this month.
During a weekend full of exciting activities on November 16 and 17, the Simeone Museum will take its 1963 #002 Grand Sport onto its back lot and demonstrate it for the public.
The demonstration will be the culmination of a special Corvette Racing Legends event set that weekend at the museum.
When you think about Corvettes, going muddin’ is usually not the first thing that pops into your mind.
But a couple of guys named Dan Linden and Tom Hahn are quickly putting a halt to that kind of thinking.
They’ve constructed the Mud Slinger, a 4×4 atop a gigantic set of tires and sporting the look of a 1963 Corvette Split Window Coupe.
We came, we saw and we survived another great week at the annual SEMA show. We’re leaving Las Vegas Friday morning to fly across the country and so we thought this would be a great time to drop our photo gallery of Corvettes on display at the show.
