NCRS Offers Historical Document Services for Classic Corvette Owners

I often preach the importance of documentation when purchasing a classic Corvette because those documents (invoices, tank stickers, build sheets and protect-o-plates) play a key role in determining the value of your car. Unfortunately, that documentation is not available for every Corvette out there and so the only option owners had in tracing the lineage of their Corvette was through previous owners. This fall, the National Corvette Restorers Society (NCRS) announced that through a partnership with the General Motors Heritage Center, it can offer members a new service that confirms the original delivery dealer as well as validate any GM documents you do have.

Corvettes on eBay: 1978 Batmobile Replica

We first came across Mark Shields (aka Super Genius) replica Corvette Batmobile in May 2006. A salvaged 1978 Corvette was used as the basis to create the one of kind tribute to Tim Burton’s 1989 reincarnation of the Dark Knight which featured Michael Keaton in the role of the caped crusader. The Corvette is now listed on eBay with a somewhat steep starting bid of $50,000.

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.
