The National Corvette Museum’s Bash kicks off later this week and one of the special events happening over the three-day event is the raffle of this Velocity Yellow 2013 Corvette 427 Convertible tribute to Andy Pilgrim, who was inducted into the Corvette Hall of Fame last September.
Last year Adam’s Polishes was named the officially licensed car care products for the Corvette and Camaro. When we heard that founder and CEO Adam Pitale would be giving a free detailing seminar on site at the Lingenfelter Collection outside Detroit, we had to add the event to our weekend agenda.
Last year, Callaway produced a special run of 25 Grand Sports to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Callaway’s RPO B2K – the first turbo-charged Corvettes offered by the factory. These special B2K Anniversary Corvettes were snapped up quickly and now we hear the only one left for sale in the entire country is at Criswell Corvette – the #3/25 B2K Callaway Corvette.
Last Friday we spent the slightly soggy day at Barrett-Jackson to see the auction of the 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible. While that auction was certainly exciting with Rick Hendrick paying $1 million to buy the first retail version of the next generation convertible, it wasn’t the only Corvette offered on the block that day.

Eric Lancaster’s 2010 ZR1 is measured at releasing a whopping 902.2 horsepower to the rear wheels just before the blinding light show.
