It’s Monday so let’s ease the pain with a random gallery of Midyear Corvettes from 1963-67.
It’s the beginning of a new year which means its time for the annual Saint Bernard Catholic Church’s classic Corvette raffle. This year the grand prize is a red 1957 Corvette roadster with a 283/283 fuel injected V8 engine.
This individual Corvette is making its second appearance in the annual Corvette giveaway after it was presented to Jeff Morrison in 2010. Jeff sold the red roadster back to the Parish and now you can have the opportunity to drive it home later this summer.
The owners of the Corvette resting at the bottom of the pile in the shocking sinkhole inside the National Corvette Museum say they’re not sorry they donated their 2001 Mallett Hammer Conversion Z06 just six weeks ago.
Kevin and Linda Helmintoller made the trip to Bowling Green on Saturday to see firsthand the sinkhole that ate their car, which appears to be the lowest in the stack of eight Corvettes that suddenly tumbled into the earth on Wednesday.
Three (wet) hill climbs.
No driver aids allowed.
OK, this is pretty awesome. Corvette Stingray vs C6 Z06. Stingray is faster on launch but then that Z06′s torque curve kicks in.
The C6 Z06 has bolt-ons and the C7 has heads/cam and runs 10′s. Who do you think will win this?

The January collector car auctions in Arizona and Florida each year help set the tone for the rest of the auction year. Once again there were plenty of high end Corvettes and eager bidders to go around as 6 and 7-figure bids were quite common. We’ve already taken a look at the Mecum Kissimmee results, but how do they stack up against all of the other January sales? Click past the jump to find out.
After experts determined that the exhibit hall at the National Corvette Museum is still safe for visitors, museum officials have retained a Bowling Green contractor to help them deal with the aftermath of a sinkhole that swallowed eight cars in the Skydome early Wednesday morning.
Scott, Murphy and Daniel will help come up with a plan to try and recover the historic Corvettes, estimated to be worth at least a million dollars, and rebuild the damaged portion of the museum, according to Museum Executive Director Wendell Strode.
If the new Corvette Stingray isn’t quite distinctive enough for you, then you might want to check out the eBay auction going on right now for a Forgiato Widebody C7 Corvette Stingray, one of which was on display at SEMA in November.
We found a video today at www.forgiato.com that shows two of the distinctive “Aston Martin Blue” Forgiato Stingrays weaving their way down a city street. We’re not sure if the car for sale now is one of those or not.

The news that a huge 40 foot wide sinkhole opening up under the National Corvette Museum has shocked many of us. After watching much of the activity and videos from the Museum yesterday via social media and webcams, we thought it appropriate to now take a closer look at those eight Corvettes which fell into the cavern under the gold skydome.
