Corvette Smashed By Van Carrying 2 Dead Bodies

I’m not making this up.

This is the headline from www.kitsapsun.com which described how a van in Bremerton, Washington was on its way to the morgue carrying two dead bodies when it lost control and caused a major wreck. In addition to taking out this red C3 Corvette, the van also hit a truck, a tree and a sign before taking out the porches of two houses and coming to rest in the living room of a third house.

Corvettes at the Cars and Coffee Meet in St. Pete

This morning found me up before the sun cruising across Tampa Bay to the duPont Registry’s Cars and Coffee meet in St. Petersburg. Florida. The monthly get-together keeps growing and as such there is a ton of eye candy for our viewing pleasure. The earliest Corvette we found was a silver 1964 Coupe and the latest model was a 2010 supercharged Callaway Corvette. Check out our gallery of photos after the jump.

Last Baldwin-Motion Phase III GT Corvette Found

Last Baldwin-Motion Phase III GT Corvette Found

Joel Rosen’s east coast-based Motion Performance Speed Shop was legendary for building unbeatable muscle cars in the Sixties and seventies. Teaming up with Baldwin Chevrolet, customers could order a Corvette which would be torn down and rebuilt into an 11.5 second drag car, complete with factory warranty.

One the creations of Rosen was the Phase III GT which made its debut at the International Auto Show in New York City in April, 1969. Motion Performance would build just 12 of the 500+ horsepower grand touring Corvettes with the last one leaving the shop in 1971. That last Phase III GT Corvette was recently purchased from the family of the original owner and has been restored back to original condition and will be displayed at the Muscle Car & Corvette Nationals in November.

1980 Corvette Stolen and Crashed on Route 66

For many teen drivers, a Corvette is a dream car that they hope they will one day own. For Kachina Village, Arizona teen Mitchell Mohler Jr, it was a goal made possible by shoveling snow and doing other jobs which raised several thousand dollars. His Dad kicked in the rest and together they purchased a restored 1980 Corvette. That dream of Corvette ownership has since turned into a nightmare when the Corvette was stolen from a car show and crashed on Route 66.

Custom Corvettes Shine at the Classic Corvette Club UK Nationals

The Classic Corvette Club UK held their 30th Anniversary Nationals show recently and corvette owners turned out to display a variety of the classic American sports car from all generations. Like most shows, participants entered Corvettes ranging from stock through modified, race cars and recreations. Some of the customs are very well done and so we thought a pictorial feature would be nice to show what our brothers and sisters from across the pond are doing to their Corvettes.

Corvette Ad Watch: 1969 Corvette Magazine Ad

Corvette Ad Watch: 1969 Corvette Magazine Ad

You don’t have to beware of substitutes. There aren’t any.

If you thought the “…no substitutes” slogan was a Porsche exclusive, take another look at this ad that appeared back in 1969. In fact, looking specifically at the ’69 model year, the “America’s Only Sportscar” theme was prevelent on several Corvette ads.
