If you’ve ever wanted a full-on Corvette race car to show people how it’s done at the track, you may want to hurry over to eBay. There is only a little more than two days left in an auction of a turnkey track package including a 1999 C5 Corvette race car and a 24-foot enclosed Pace trailer. The $55,000 asking price includes both, but the seller is willing to sell them separately—$52,000 for the car and $3,000 for the trailer. However, he is not willing to sell the trailer before the car is sold.

Last weekend we kicked off our pre-turkey day festivities by hitting up the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals (MCACN) in Chicago. For 2 days hundreds of muscle cars, Corvettes, customs, and racers took over the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont in what’s become one of the best indoor shows around. Click past the jump to see some of our favorites from MCACN 2014.

Here’s our salute to Black Corvettes with a random photo gallery made up of 37 Corvettes spanning seven generations.
