Our friends at Kerbeck Corvette posted this video today of the first truckload of 2014 Corvette Stingrays to arrive at the dealership. These 10 Corvettes will be the first of over 500 Corvette Stingrays sold by the World’s Largest Corvette Dealer during the initial 6-9 month rollout of the new C7.
When Brian Hobaugh’s dad bought a 1965 Corvette to compete in the world of autocross back in 1983, he probably didn’t realize he was creating a family legacy that shows no signs of ending anytime soon.
But that’s exactly what he has created over the past 30 years with his magnificent 1965 Sting Ray that has never known anything but life on the autocross since it was created in St. Louis, Mo.
Right on the heels of the record breaking 1967 L88 Stingray which sold for $3.2M at Mecum’s Dallas Auction September 7, Dana Mecum is out to break his own record for the price paid for a Corvette. The “Dealmaker” knew he’d have to do something spectacular for an encore at his upcoming Chicagoland Auction, October 10-12, and as if pulling a rabbit out of a hat he is magically offering the special modified 1963 Corvette given to Harley Earl by GM honoring his contribution to the corporation and Corvette, Harley Earl’s personal Corvette.
One of the coolest recurring Corvette shows that happens once every couple of years is Vettes and Jets on the Lex. Over 300 Corvettes are loaded onto the flight deck of the retired aircraft carrier USS Lexington for a two day Corvette show. The Corvettes are parked next to many of the retired jets from our Armed Forces and proceeds of the event goes to support The Wounded Warrior Project.
