Top Corvettes Go Unsold at Mecum Kissimmee

The “Real McCoy” $2.3M Sale Postponed During Dispute of Ownership on Parts

More than the weather failed to cooperate for the world’s largest collector car auction, Dana Mecum’s 2700 car Kissimmee event held January 17th through January 26th. Each year hundreds of Corvettes change hands during the ten day event as thousands of collectors and enthusiasts leave the cold weather blanketing most of the country and make their pilgrimage to the event in sunny, warm Florida. This year, though hundreds of airline flights were cancelled due to the weather, the pilgrimage still managed to take place even though the pilgrims were greeted with sunny but not very warm weather in Florida, the attendance slipped by over 6% and sales dropped by over $8M, down 11.4%.

One of my all time favorite annual Corvette events is the NCRS Winter Regional in Kissimmee, Florida. While I love doing the stories and coverage of the new C7 Corvette Stingray and Z06, there’s just something about walking through a field literately strewn with used Corvette parts and accessories for every generation but the C7.

[INFOGRAPHIC] Corvette Z06 Domination

You know the Corvette Z06, any red blooded auto enthusiast does! This head turning, track dominating, ultra-performance sports car has inspired both racers and the everyday Corvette lover to add a little more excitement to their lives. The unique features of the 2015 Z06 are grabbing headlines and causing many of us to check how much equity we have in our house, and it’s not even on sale yet.

However, the new Z06 isn’t the only one that’s ever made waves in the auto industry — well actually, every time a Z06 has rolled off an assembly line, it’s been a game changer in the industry. We could talk about the Z06 all day long (and what a great day that would be), but we’d rather show you the distinctions of this glorious automobile with this awesome infographic.

[VIDEO] Advantage Features 1964 Corvette Sting Ray Racing Up a Swiss Mountain Pass

If you don’t have much time to go to the movies, then Martin and Sandro Baebler’s flick called Advantage should be right up your alley.

Or should we say, right up your mountain.

In the film, which lasts all of one minute and 26 seconds, our mysterious main character (the only character for that matter) is apparently a secret agent being pursued by some bad guys.

Barrett-Jackson Sets Records at 2014 Scottsdale Auction

The curtain came down Sunday, January 19th, on the most successful Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction in history. The FOX televised, eight-day event, sometimes called the “world’s greatest reality show,” was hosted in Barrett-Jackson’s brand new bricks and mortar facility with much improved space and amenities, a building that was completed in only eleven months time and completed only days before the auction start on Sunday, January 12th. Barrett-Jackson’s former main auction tent, the largest tent in the world, was connected to the new permanent auction building and created an impressive almost mile long facility from one end to the other.

1967 Corvette L88 Sells for World Record $3.5 Million at Barrett-Jackson

All Corvette enthusiast eyes were on Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale Saturday afternoon in expectation for some record setting prices. If you have been following CorvetteBlogger’s updates on this week’s Barrett-Jackson auction extravaganza, you know that their 2014 event has gotten off to a strong start with attendance up 30% through Thursday and sales exceeding last year by over 8%.

Saturday is traditionally when the best of the best collector cars cross the block and in the late afternoon within a little over one hour six Corvette lot numbers sold for a combined total of $8.63M including bidder fees. These included some of the best known and important Corvettes.

But the real star of the afternoon was a 1967 second generation L88 coupe we called the “crown jewel” of Corvettes in an article back in November, one of only twenty Corvette L88 coupes built that year. Within a few minutes of the famous “Rebel” racecar selling for $2.86M (including buyer’s premium), the 1967 L88 red/red award-winning coupe set a new world’s record for a Corvette sold at auction when it hammered for $3.5M ($3.85M including buyer’s fees). The bidding quickly rose to $2M then surpassed the former record price of $3.2M set by another 1967 L88 last September by almost 10%. When the reserve was lifted the car sold setting a new world’s record Corvette auction record.
