The first Corvette to make it back to street level was the 2009 Corvette ZR1 Blue Devil which had landed upright on top of the pile.

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.
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…
Last week and into the early part of this week, we had the unique opportunity to host a seven day test drive of the 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible.

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.
