2009 Callaway GT1 Championship Edition featured in Corvette Magazine

I just got my April 2010 issue of Corvette Magazine and oh, snap! Guess what I saw? Gracing the cover is a 2009 GT1 Championship Edition Convertible. A car so rare, we’ll be talking about the record prices these special editions are sure to get at auctions sooner rather than later. Only 7 Black GT1 Convertibles were made and we are pretty sure that only one has been tuned by Callaway.

January 2010 Corvette Sales

The first sales report of the new year hit yesterday and the good news is that Corvette sales are up 1.4% over last year. January 2010 deliveries totaled 854 – 12 Corvettes more than the 842 sold in January 2009. Historically, Corvette sales tend to a breather in January anyway so we are okay with this number. The other significant number for the month is the availability of the Corvette ZR1. National inventories of the supercharged ZR1 have grown by 27% to 191 units.

1953 EX-122 Corvette at New York's Motorama Show

It was fifty-seven years ago today that thousands of Americans gathered at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City to catch a glimpse of Chevrolet’s new two-seater sports car. The EX-122 concept was such an instant hit with the public that GM rushed into production the revolutionary fiberglass-bodied car. Six months later, the first Corvette was completed at a makeshift assembly plant in Flint, Michigan. Just 300 Corvettes were produced in 1953 with a sticker price of about $3,500.

Corvette's Almost 4-Seater 1963 Split Window Coupe

If something doesn’t quite look right with this 1963 Corvette Coupe, you get a gold star! That’s because this was a prototype for a “four place” Corvette. That’s right, a Corvette with back seats! The idea came from Ed Cole who wondered if a four-place Corvette could rival the successful four-seat Thunderbird.

The “accident” at the end of this video has been up on YouTube for a while but it was just today I learned that the driver had picked up the C5 Corvette Z06 from a dealer and was on a test drive. In this extended version, the Corvette driver is being an absolute ass by tailgating, fishtailing and doing donuts on public roads leading up to the crash.

The announcer says the dealer decided not to press charges which leads me to wonder if they ever saw this tape? Well one thing is for certain. Unlike the guy who fried the clutch in a Z06, our driver here at least knows how to do a burnout!
