My 13-year-old son loves Corvettes and four-wheel drive trucks. This Craigslist find is definitely right up his alley, but will someone who actually has a driver’s license feel the same love, enough to pay “a firm” $2,500 for this 1978 C3 that’s been raised off the ground and turned into a four-wheel driver.

Going to school every day is a cool ride these days for the automotive technology students at Trenton High School in Michigan.
They’re in the second year of restoring this yellow 1980 Corvette.
The students began work on the car during the 2011-12 school year after owner Jim Schneider, a 68-year-old Vietnam veteran, decided the Corvette would be better used as an instructional tool, rather than wasting away at his home.

Back in August one of the famous Owens-Corning L88 Corvette racecars went up for bids at RM’s Monterey auction. There it was a no sale at a stout $730,000. If you’re still looking to do something with your spare million or so bucks before the Fiscal Cliff hits don’t worry. You’ll have another chance to snag this magnificent Corvette at Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale auction next month in Arizona.
It’s not often that someone has the chance to buy a genuine piece of automotive history, with complete documentation since new to prove its heritage.
But that’s what bidders at the upcoming RM Auction in Phoenix, Arizona will have a chance to do on January 18, 2013.
Being offered is one of only 80 L88 Corvettes manufactured in 1968, and RM can trace the history of the most powerful Corvette of the muscle car era back to the original owner.

It’s been almost like a death in the family for the car collectors whose prized possessions were damaged by Superstorm Sandy in October.
Never mind the dollars-and-cents value of these cars. It’s the sentimental value of these collector cars that is immeasurable for their owners.
Kevin J. Mackay, owner of Corvette Repair Inc. in Valley Stream, N.Y., on Long Island, says he’s already seen grown men come into his shop in tears. “They didn’t expect a storm surge to wipe out their work, their investment, their prized family heirloom,” he says.
