It’s the final Friday in the month of February and that means it’s time for another installment of a “Black Friday” photo gallery. So here’s a random photo gallery made up of 41 black Corvettes spanning seven generations. We’re admitting in advance that the gallery does feature more black Corvette Z06s than ever before but that’s because they are more plentiful now that they are out on the streets.
Some lucky person will soon have an opportunity to become the new owner of a verified 1969 Corvette L88 convertible.
But it won’t come cheap. A similar Le Mans Blue example that could trace its lineage all the way back to the original Georgia owner recently sold for a whopping $825,000.
This L88, ruled the real deal by experts David Burroughs and Tim Thorpe, will be on the block at the Hollywood Wheels Amelia Island Select auction set in Florida for March 12-15.
One of the cool things about the Corvette is its long family line after 62 years of production.
For instance, take these two cars featured in an AmeriCarna video on Velocity.com.
Though they’re separated by nearly 50 years, it’s easy to tell that the 1968 Corvette L88 “gave birth” to the 2015 Corvette C7.R race car.
Sometimes love is not just in the stars – it’s in the cars!
For instance, I met Cindy, my wife of 25+ years, on a warm spring Saturday night while cruising the streets of Dalton, Ga., in my red 1986 Corvette.
It was really love at first sight, at least for me, as I quickly – and boldly for me – asked her to go to a Corvette show at Day’s Chevrolet in Acworth, Ga., the next afternoon.
‘Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.
A Georgia woman probably isn’t so sure about that old saying, especially after her heart may wind up being broken twice – but not by a man, but by a Corvette.
Our story begins in 1972 when a teenage Terry Dietrich of DeKalb County, Ga., bought a 1972 blue Corvette Stingray.
Here’s your chance to own a true piece of Corvette history, but you’d better act quickly.
Bidding on the last 1975 Corvette convertible produced by Chevrolet ends Thursday at 12:57 pm ET.
No one has bid on the car as of 1pm Eastern Time on Feb. 11th, but you can lock it up at the “Buy It Now” price of $85,000.
The driver of this ’69 Corvette Stingray is having some serious fun trying to get that American V8 power some traction during an autocross event held on an ice track.
Chevrolet Corvette Stingray on ice! Without Winter Tires! Not a good idea but Crazy Fun! Epic Fail!

Right on the heels of the Scottsdale auction where the six auction houses reported a combined 18% increase in sales, Mecum announced record setting sales for their ten-day Kissimmee event, the largest collector car auction in the world. And Mecum’s results were truly impressive; total sales for the 10-day event approached the $70-million mark, currently standing at $68,801,987, selling 1,771 cars of the 2,404 that crossed the auction block, for an exceptionally strong 74% sell-through. So based on the results of the January auctions, long considered to be a barometer of the collector car market for the coming year, collectors are feeling “warm and fuzzy.”
Hagerty, classic car insurance company and price guide publisher, launched a new marketplace rating tool which ranks the classic car market at 70.22, which means it is “expanding but not overheated.” Hagerty chief executive McKeel Hagerty, explained to ClassicCars.com, “We developed this as a tool to allow anyone who is serious about treating collector cars as investments to immediately take the temperature of the classic car market and truly understand the factors that cause the classic car market to move up or down.” But if you are a Corvette collector before you get too excited, based on January results Corvette auction prices are slipping.
The sheer number of vehicles for sale on eBay is impressive of course, but the incredible variety that are for sale never ceases to amaze. If you are a Corvette fan of a certain age that never missed Speed Racer, eBay has the car to satisfy your wildest fantasy — a Speed Racer Mach 5 replica based on a 1981 Corvette.
It’s the final Friday in the month of January and that means it’s time for the first “Black Friday” gallery of 2015 here at CorvetteBlogger.com. So here’s a random photo gallery made up of 33 Corvettes spanning seven generations that are all dressed in Black and looking ready to put a beat down on the competition.
