I normally don’t talk too much about my own Corvette, but this is just too cool for us to pass up. Yesterday, we posted that USA Today wants your Corvette Photos. Taking the plunge, I sent them this photo of our 1966 Corvette convertible parked at Davis Islands in Tampa.
This morning, USA Today has posted a story on their website called Happy Birthday, Chevrolet Corvette and our black Sting Ray is the 3rd image in the accompanying photo gallery.
When it comes to custom license plates, Corvette owners are tops when it comes to unique characters, phrases, or sayings. We spent took some time this weekend wandering the grounds of the Pheasant Run Resort see what the all the Corvette owners had come up with. Click past the jump to see some of our favorite license plates from the 2012 Bloomington Gold show.
Last weekend Bloomington Gold formally inducted the 2012 honorees into The Great Hall. The 3rd class of cars features the earliest known production Corvette, 2 very famous racecars, and arguably the most famous Corvette styling car of all time. The diverse list of people and organizations consists of a Lemans winning racer, the founder of Corvette Central, and a former Corvette Chief Engineer.
The 2012 version of the Bloomington Gold Corvette Show took place last weekend in St. Charles, Illinois. Chamber of Commerce weather, a fantastic setting, and spectacular cars all combined to produce yet another memorable late-June celebration of Corvettes.
The Barrett-Jackson Collector Car auction held over the weekend in Orange County, California appeared to be another success. A final talley of 25 Corvettes ranging from a 1957 roadster to a 1996 Coupe were offered at the 3rd annual sale in Southern California and when it was said it done, sales of Corvettes totaled just over $1.2 Million.
There’s a serious affliction slowly taking a hold of the Unites States which some people may not be aware of. This situation could very quickly turn into an epidemic. What is this serious concern? It’s the fact that hundreds of Chevrolet Corvettes are actively looking for a new, caring home. To help combat this problem, Mecum Auctions holds their annual Bloomington Gold all-Corvette auction each year in June. The 2012 version takes place this Saturday June 23rd at the Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles, IL.
We made a quick stop last weekend at the 8th annual Canterbury Corvette Fest hosted by the GMC Corvette Set club. Just under 100 Corvettes were spread out around the scenic property of Olde World Canterbury Village in Lake Orion, Michigan. A photo gallery of the event lurks just beyond the jump.
Each year the Eyeson Design car show celebrates the best in automotive design from pre-war cars and motorcycles to modern tuner cars. This year the popular event turned 25 and celebrated its silver anniversary with a special circle of silver Corvettes.
