For those of you who have opted to take delivery of your new 2014 Corvette Stingray at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, the good news tweeted today announced the arrival of a truckload of R8C Delivery Stingrays from the plant across the street. The cars will be prepped and the first of many Museum Deliveries start on September 30th.
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.
One of the early favorite features of the new Corvette Stingray has been its impressive advanced cluster instrument display.
This week, we found out more about Johnson Controls, the company that helped General Motors co-develop the cluster display.
