Long Forgotten Corvettes Left to Die in Upstate New York

We’ve all got our childhood memories of Corvettes.

For instance, I remember a fellow who ran the local feed and seed store in my hometown, pulling into the grocery store where I worked as a teenager in a brand new silver 1974 Corvette.

Man, I thought he had the ultimate car back then! While some folks would label the mid-1970s as a bad time for Corvette, for me, they’re still as beautiful as the day they were made.

Over the weekend, we featured a video from XCAR that was essentially a look at the C2 Corvette from the perspective of those in Europe. Here we have a video first published late last year of a 1966 427 Corvette Sting Ray Sport Coupe in Hong Kong. The classic Corvette has been converted to right-hand-drive and also has fixed Plexiglas headlights.

The video is in English and the cool Sting Ray gets the walk-around treatment before getting on the roads of Hong Kong. A pretty neat setting to see American Muscle.

A walk around and road test of a unique right hand drive 1966 Corvette Sting Ray Sport Coupe in Hong Kong.

John Hennessey discusses & test drives the HPE700 Supercharged C7 Corvette.

The HPE 700 is powered by a TVS supercharger with 7 lbs of boost. The Corvette puts down over 600 horsepower to the wheels and overall horsepower is measured at 707.

The arctic white sports car also features Hennessey’s carbon fiber splitter and aero rocker panels. The custom wheels on the car not only look good, but they save around 17 pounds over the stock alloys.

Hennessey then takes the Corvette Stingray out to his test track and puts the angry-sounding C7 through its paces before finishing with a massive burnout.

Corvettes on eBay: 1969 Corvette Survivor from the Gas Monkey Garage

To say that eBay has been a boon to those who are perennial car-lookers, like most of us Corvette fans, is overstating the obvious. You just never know what you’re going to find.

For instance, a currently running auction on eBay is offering a 1969 Riverside Gold Corvette convertible in survivor condition showing only 51,089 miles “that is believed to be original” in the ad’s words, being sold by the guys at the Gas Monkey Garage featured on the TV show Fast N’ Loud.
