The team at Mecum Auctions recently announced that the “Black Corvette L88 once owned by Tony DeLorenzo will cross the block at Mecum!”

If you closely follow the blue chip Corvette market you probably think they were talking about the black 1967 L88 Corvette raced by Tony DeLorenzo and sold by Mecum in 2011. That car was the first documented Corvette L88 ever produced and it sold for $1.25M to Terry Michaelis whose intent was to return the car to its race delivery.

But Mecum’s recent announcement is not about that car, it is announcing the sale of another important L88, DeLorenzo’s triple black 1969 personal driver which will be offered in Mecum’s Dallas auction September 3rd through 6th.

The Mecum Dallas auction has become one of the premier auctions in the world for offering important and historic Chevrolet Corvettes. This year’s event is no exception and in addition to DeLorenzo’s L88 has several other excellent Corvettes crossing the block from blue chip collectibles to restomods.

The Rumor Mill Heats Up Again with Talk of a Mid-Engine ZR1 Corvette

If you’ve been following Corvettes for sometime, you are probably aware of the oft-repeated rumor will basically goes like this: The next generation Corvette will feature a mid-engine design. As in the engine goes behind the seats, but in front of the rear axle.

Motor Trend came out yesterday with a “hot scoop” saying they have multiple sources that tell them that Chevrolet is indeed working on the next version of the Corvette ZR1 and that it will be mid-engined. Not only that, but the C8 Corvette will also feature a mid-engine design as well.

We’ve seen this time and again, so what makes this time any different than previous mid-engine design rumors?

The Corvette, of course, celebrated its 50th birthday in 2003, and Chevrolet offered a distinctive 50th Anniversary package to anyone who wanted to buy it.

This car, though, went much further than a paint job, as it served as an official Safety Car for the 24 Hours of Le Mans in France that year.

We haven’t heard much from Callaway since they showed off an Arctic White C7 Corvette Callaway Convertible at the NCM Bash back in April. But that doesn’t mean they haven’t been busy.

The Arctic White Callaway which made its debut at the Bash was the first to be built and Callaway’s reps told us back then that they already had around 50 orders from customers wanting to upgrade their Corvette Stingrays with the supercharged Callaway SC627 package.

Callaway’s Chris Chessnoe posted these photos yesterday on the Corvette Forum of a brand new Laguna Blue Corvette Callaway SC627 Convertible that will soon be on its way to its new owner, who happens to be a woman named Janet.
