Dana Mecum and the staff from Mecum Auctions are in Denver, CO. this week for a two-day sale featuring 700 vehicles which include 45 Corvettes ranging from a 1957 Roadster to a 2011 Corvette Z06 tuned by Lingenfelter. We turned to our friend Marshall Fancher of Vette-N-Vestments for a preview of the auction and he provided us with the run list as well as some of the cars he would like to bring home if money wasn’t an object.
Back in the day, a lot of car magazines featured C3 Corvettes painted wildly.
The Stingray just seemed to be one of those cars that was perfect for painting that way. We remember one in particular painted red, white and blue with white stars on it.
Now you can take another trip back to the Psychedelic ’70s in this 1971 Corvette Coupe.
We call this a Corvette barn find, but the truth of the matter is that this 1981 Corvette wasn’t parked in a barn. Instead, it’s been stashed behind a lady’s garage since 1996. This craigslist ad shows the damage that can be done to a Corvette from letting it sit outside for years and years. In the end, this one is worth only $900 as a parts car.
While much of the Corvette racing world was focused on the factory efforts at the 24 Hours of Le Mans last weekend, another historic track here in the United States was also in session. The Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) was in Indianapolis for the 2015 Brickyard Vintage Racing Invitational and so were the vintage Corvette racers.
Our friend Glenn Brown was there to help crew for Jim Glass and his 1965 Corvette and he captured many of the classic Corvettes doing their thing on the track.
Back in October 2009, we told you about a custom 1968 Corvette on our Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas Results post.
Then we showed you a photo of the new owner cruising Santa Monica Boulevard in Beverly Hills. Turned out to be the legendary Sylvester Stallone, who proved to be the high bidder via telephone, shelling out a whopping $198,000 back then for the 510/660 hp roadster.
It was meant to be. How else can you describe it?
Terry Dietrich was born in 1953, the same year that the first Corvette rolled out of the factory.
That coincidence sparked a love affair for the Corvette that ultimately led to her decision as a 19-year-old to buy a brand new Corvette Stingray in 1972.

Two teenage girls escaped death Sunday afternoon in their white C3 Corvette convertible after an 18-wheeler rolled over the classic sports car in Redmond, Oregon!
It definitely shows how tough the old Corvette was built.
Take a look at the photos, and you’ll have to wonder how the passenger was transported to St. Charles Redmond Hospital, where she was treated and then released.
Sometimes things just go to together when paired with something equally awesome. Take Corvettes, jets and planes for example. The jets rule the skies while Corvettes rule the streets. So when owners get a chance to get the two together, it usually makes for a great photograph.
A couple of years ago, a buddy of mine sold his 1997 Corvette.
Well, the new owner decided he really wanted a pickup instead of a ‘Vette so he wound up taking a loss a few weeks later and sold it to me to get a truck.
Too bad this unusual creation wasn’t available in 2012. It might have been just the ticket for that unhappy Corvette owner!
It’s the final Friday in the month of May and that means it’s time for another installment of a “Black Friday” photo gallery. Check out our mega photo gallery made up of 42 beautiful black Corvettes which span seven generations from C1 to C7.
We offer thanks to those of you who have submitted photos of their Black Corvettes over the last couple of months and so look closely as you might see your car featured here.
