Last weekend we kicked off our pre-turkey day festivities by hitting up the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals (MCACN) in Chicago. For 2 days hundreds of muscle cars, Corvettes, customs, and racers took over the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont in what’s become one of the best indoor shows around. Click past the jump to see some of our favorites from MCACN 2014.
Sure it’s Monday but it’s a short week with the Thanksgiving holiday. So now it’s our turn to give thanks to Chevrolet for the second generation of Corvettes produced from 1963-1967 with our Midyear Monday gallery. Here’s a random photo gallery of 28 Midyear Corvettes to kick off the week.
Yes it’s Monday but don’t dispair! It’s Midyear Monday here at CorvetteBlogger.com which means it’s time to salute America’s automotive icon of design and performance, the 1963-67 Corvette Sting Ray. Here’s a random photo gallery of 37 Midyear Corvettes to kick off the week.
Sometimes things come cheaper by the dozen.
Or in this case, cheaper by the 11.
That’s how many second-generation Corvette Sting Rays are up for auction as a package deal right now on eBay. Bidding had reached $67,807.07 as of 9:00 am Eastern Time on Monday morning and so far the reserve has not yet been met.
Ever since attending our first SEMA show, we’ve been hooked. And it’s not hard to see why either. There’s a ton of Corvette eye candy waiting to be seen with a different take on the car at just about every booth. Then tie in the cool new Corvette-related products, hot booth girls and the excitement of Las Vegas and that just about sums up what SEMA is all about.
Armed with our trusty Canon DSLR, we went hunting for Corvettes at the 2014 SEMA show and by our count, came up nearly 70 different cars ranging from a 1958 restomod to the 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible.
Here’s a garage find C2 Sting Ray with an interesting past.
After being driven sporadically by the owners for a couple of years, this 1964 Corvette coupe has been sitting in a garage on jack stands since sometime in early 1973. The long-time owner died earlier this summer, and the car was dug out from the garage and sent all the way across the country to a fellow named Rick F on the West Coast.
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.
