Corvettes

[VIDEO] Corvette Sting Ray Designer Peter Brock on Jay Leno's Garage

Can you imagine wanting to watch an interview with the guy who designed the 1974 Vega?

But that’s what makes the Corvette so great for enthusiasts. We crave to know every minute detail about how our beloved sports car came into existence.

If you’re like me, that makes a new book by someone who was actually there when the 1963 Corvette Sting Ray was in the planning stages, very special indeed.

Vintage Purple People Eater Corvette Racer to be Displayed at the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance

Sometimes you just can’t see the forest for the trees.

That was certainly the case for Ken Heckert, owner of a restoration shop, and Chip Miller, founder of what is now known as Carlisle Events.

Both those gentlemen were very familiar with Corvettes, but back in 1974 at an event called Post War ’74 (now Fall Carlisle), they discovered what they thought was just a regular old Corvette race car that they could bang around in. Little did they know…

Mecum's Houston Event Offers Two Compelling Corvettes

It appears that Mecum is off and running for 2014 after a weather induced slow start in Kissimmee. Their Houston event is shaping up to be typical of the high quality consignments that usually characterizes their events with some outstanding Corvettes scheduled to cross the block from Thursday, April 10th through Saturday, April 12th.

As I was reviewing Mecum’s latest on-line catalog, two Corvettes jumped off the page to capture my attention.

Certainly no Corvette enthusiast could ignore the Bunkie Knudsen Corvette, after all it is not only the auction headliner, it is one of the most interesting Corvettes ever made, as well as the personal car for then Chevrolet General manager Bunkie Knudsen. The second Corvette, perhaps not as well known, is the stunning 1967 Corvette coupe once owned by former Marine and Viet Nam veteran, Don McNamara, and put into storage with less than 3K miles on it, has a bullet proof provenance and literally may be the finest 1967 “survivor” in existence.
