Last night’s Super Bowl game between the Patriots and Seahawks was very entertaining and hopefully you’re not dragging today at work. To help you get through your case of the Monday’s comes our weekly Midyear Monday random image gallery featuring America’s automotive icon of design and performance, the 1963-67 Corvette Sting Ray. Here’s a random photo gallery of 36 Midyear Corvettes to kick off the week.
It’s always exciting to see a 1953 Corvette up for sale.
The latest of the first 300 Corvettes ever made will be up for sale at RM Auctions in Amelia Island, Fla., on March 14.
Only 26 more 1953 models were made after this one, which is the 274th Corvette ever made. Considering more than 1.5 million Corvettes have been made since then, it’s awe-inspiring to think about the historic importance of this particular car.
But No. 274 has much more going for it than just being a 1953 model.
A new 2015 Corvette Z06 was destroyed and its driver was pronounced dead at the scene following a fatal accident in Arkansas over the weekend.
Police say the car was traveling at a high rate of speed when the driver lost control. The Z06 went off the road and hit some trees, ejecting both the driver and the passenger.
The sheer number of vehicles for sale on eBay is impressive of course, but the incredible variety that are for sale never ceases to amaze. If you are a Corvette fan of a certain age that never missed Speed Racer, eBay has the car to satisfy your wildest fantasy — a Speed Racer Mach 5 replica based on a 1981 Corvette.
It’s the final Friday in the month of January and that means it’s time for the first “Black Friday” gallery of 2015 here at CorvetteBlogger.com. So here’s a random photo gallery made up of 33 Corvettes spanning seven generations that are all dressed in Black and looking ready to put a beat down on the competition.

If you happen to be in the Land Down Under, you might be on the lookout for a stolen 1999 Corvette.
The black convertible, along with a white 1965 Ford Mustang Fastback, Land Down Underwere stolen from a “panel beating workshop” – as they apparently call a body shop down there – in Melbourne, Australia.
One of our favorite Corvettes shows we attend religiously is the annual NCRS Winter Regional in Central Florida. This year, the show was held at the Sun ‘n Fun facility in Lakeland, Florida which is a working airport and the site of a huge annual fly-in.
The new location had its good and bad points, but overall we were positive about it as it was a great facility for hosting the Winter Regional Corvette show.
When Tadge Juechter and his crew were busy coming up with the 2015 Corvette Z06, they were probably hoping for somebody just like Gene Sanchez Leeds to climb behind the wheel.
You see, Mr. Leeds does “ridiculous things with Corvettes,” as he puts it in his blog post on Road and Track.
Put another way, he doesn’t park his Corvettes on a pedestal, instead preferring to enjoy them, and enjoy them HIS way.
Team Corvette has a Nurburgring problem.
After testing the new Corvette Z06 at the famous 12.9 mile track in Germany last year, circumstances which include a crash and rainy weather stopped the team from laying down a complete timed lap. Instead of staying in Germany and making it a priority, the team left town and that has ceded the conversation to others.
More proof arrived today that General Motors is taking its responsibility to deliver safe cars more seriously than ever before.
GM announced Wednesday a recall of about fifty 2015 Corvettes because a part on the rear suspension may not have been tightened the right way and could cause a crash.
