In our daily search of interesting Corvette news comes this classified ad we found on FreeTruckShopper.com. Now many will do anything to get a Corvette and often those transactions are made by trade or barter instead of cash. So if you’re in the Lexington, KY area and own a dump truck or a backhoe, then this clean 1985 Corvette could be yours.
Usually when we think of TV shows about performance cars, we think about heart-stopping performance, custom paint jobs, or an electronics-love interior.
Well, a new TV show called Strippers: Cars for Cash on the UK’s National Geographic Channel takes a very different approach to that formula.
Continuing our Corvette Enthusiast’s Preview of the Scottsdale Auctions, we next take a look at the Russo and Steele auction which will feature over 40 Corvettes.
Russo & Steele expect to auction 700 cars in their five day event hosted in their impressive spired tents. The Scottsdale 2013 catalog has just been released and it is filled with sports, muscle, hot rods and customs, the types of cars they specialize in. Quality consignments are a major focus and they try hard to offer individual personalized attention as well as a commitment to not let a car get “lost” because of too many consignments.
Back in the fall of 1988, I bought a shiny new red 1989 Corvette coupe from a dealership in Calhoun, Ga.
It was my pride and joy for a couple of years before other priorities led to selling it with about 15,000 miles on the odometer.
Not surprisingly, it was literally a trip back in time when this story appeared recently in the LA Times about a 1989 red Corvette convertible that has just been found after being stolen from a new car lot in 1989 – and hidden ever since.

Corvette enthusiasts are pretty serious about America’s sports car, but car customizer Mark Towle really takes his love for his favorite car to a whole ‘nother level.
You see, when he was a child, Towle watched the famous Japanese cartoon show Speed Racer religiously. “I’ve seen all 53 episodes,” he says, “including one that was never aired; it was supposed to be the first episode of the next season, but the show got canceled.”
All grown up now, as the owner of his own car customizing business, Towle’s living a childhood dream – making his living by building replicas of Speed Racer’s car, the Mach 5, which start about at $72,500. Not bad for the ultimate boy racer, huh?

Keeping young people interested in Corvettes has long been a goal of many enthusiasts.
Mid America Motorworks and PERFORMANCE CHOICE are doing their part not only to build that kind of enthusiasm about America’s Sports Car, but also to help students learn important skills that will be helpful in their quests for jobs.
Students at Lincoln College of Technology in Indianapolis recently used products from Mid America to restore a C4 Corvette, and you’ll be able to see the great job they did, in person at next year’s FunFest in Effingham, Illinois.
With news of the 450-hp C7 LT1 engine dominating the Internet this week, we managed to find another Corvette motor worthy of some ink, too.
And you don’t even have to wait until an official unveiling to see this unusual Corvette.
Reports on the Web are discussing what appears to be the world’s only Corvette powered by a diesel engine that runs on vegetable oil.
