It’s that time of year again when the Barrett-Jackson auction company packs up and heads to the East Coast for three days of classics and collector cars in Palm Beach, Florida. The 13th Annual South Florida auction kicks off on Friday, April 17th and concludes on Sunday, April 19th and the Corvettes consigned to the sale are an eclectic mix of 48 classic Corvettes and restomods with some late model Corvette power sprinkled in for good measure.
A few months ago, we showed you a C6 ZR1 that had been fitted with a C7 rear end.
Now we’ve got something even stranger – a C5 that has received a C7 butt transplant!
Watch out Kim Kardashian!
The photos of this unusual creation showed up recently on Corvette Forum, which then did a survey asking what people thought about the car.
One of the great things you can do as a Corvette owner is to support the factory Corvette C7.Rs by going to one of the TUDOR United Sports Car races held around the Country. And Chevrolet makes it real easy to go by sponsoring a Corvette Corral at select races where owners can safely park their cars, listen to seminars from Doug Fehan, Harlan Charles and Ron Fellows as well as enjoy the camaraderie that we share with other Corvette owners.
Arriving this weekend at the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, we were amazed to see a record number of attendees who parked their cars in the Corvette Corral. From C1s to C7 Z06s, there was a little something for everyone parked under the bright Florida sun.
Autoblog’s Car Club USA takes a look at a different car club or event from across the United States in each episode.

The first Corvette to compete in a race at the National Corvette Museum’s Motorsports Park made a very good showing over the weekend.
Team Braunschweig, out of Minnesota, decided to make the trip to compete in the World Racing League’s season opener in Bowling Green on Saturday, making their No. 117 C5 the only Corvette to compete against 21 other teams in the GP1 class.

Not everyone loves Corvettes as much as we do, apparently.
Just ask the owners of this 2000 Corvette convertible.
They’ve had to call Fort Smith, Ark., police twice in the past two weeks, the first time when they discovered bullet holes in their Corvette as well as a truck in the driveway.
For model year 2004, the fifth generation Corvette (C5) would be making its last trip around the dance floor. Introduced in 1997, the C5 was then all new from the ground up—new chassis and suspension, new body styling, new rear-mounted transaxle, new all aluminum 5.7 liter V8 engine and a new interior.
It’s the final Friday in the month of February and that means it’s time for another installment of a “Black Friday” photo gallery. So here’s a random photo gallery made up of 41 black Corvettes spanning seven generations. We’re admitting in advance that the gallery does feature more black Corvette Z06s than ever before but that’s because they are more plentiful now that they are out on the streets.
