Part of the fun of owning a classic Corvette is digging out the history of the car before you bought it.
For a Michigan doctor, the search for his car’s ancestry has already turned up quite a bit of information, though he is hoping to unearth even more.
Vicari Auction Company announced that they will offer over 400 collector cars at their 16th annual Biloxi event October 12th and 13th 2012 held during the week-long Cruisin’ the Coast car show. About a dozen Corvettes will cross the block including a 1969 Coupe with an M Code engine block. What’s an M Code Corvette you ask?

Kids figured out long ago that you just never know what might be waiting in that big box when you open it on your birthday.
Well, that philosophy recently took an unusual turn down under.
Wharf inspectors in Brisbane, Australia finally opened a shipping container which had been sitting undisturbed on the docks for a decade and lo and behold discovered a stolen 1968 Corvette resting inside. The owner had reported the white convertible with a black top stolen 10 years ago and apparently went on his merry way after receiving an insurance payout.

A 1969 Corvette is providing a chance for a father and son to come closer together as they work side by side to restore the classic Chevrolet.
Jason Tueller, 21, and his 53-year-old dad, Shayne Tueller, say the restoration project is also providing them a chance to heal after the unexpected death last year of Jason’s sister, Jessica Tueller, 25.

We’ve closed the hood on yet another Corvettes at Carlisle show weekend. The 31st annual event was held last weekend at the Carlisle Fairgrounds in Carlisle, PA. After a shortened event last year due to Hurricane Irene, we were glad to see this show back firing on all cylinders. Great weather nearly all weekend provided the perfect backdrop on one of the best Carlisle shows yet.
One of the highlights of the annual Corvettes at Carlisle show is the burnout contest held on Friday afternoon. After a long day at looking at beautiful Corvettes parked across the Corvette America FunField, it seems owners love to have a seat in the grandstands and watch someone absolutely thrash their car in a brutal test of man and machine.
Stepping up to the plate and winning the King of Hill contest was John Marshall and his highly modified 1972 Corvette Coupe. When a man thanks his “crew chief”, you know he’s a serious contender.
It’s been a busy couple of week with the Woodward Dream Cruise and Corvettes at Carlisle running on consecutive weekends. We finally got a chance to catch our breath and now we’ve got some really cool Corvette photo galleries coming from each event. But before we move on to Carlisle, let’s wrap up the 2012 Woodward Dream Cruise.
We and about 1.5 million of our closest friends converged on historic M-1 in metro Detroit to celebrate all things car and transportation related. Of course, the Corvettes were our favorite rides of the week so click past the jump to view our gallery of Corvettes from the 2012 Woodward Dream Cruise.
