Last week we showed you some of the fine Corvettes in attendance at the 2012 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals (MCACN). In addition to those exceptional rides, a strong contingent of Corvette racers was also present at the show. The racecars were gathered into 2 separate groups in Chicago, but we’ve combined them into one stupendous gallery just beyond that Read More button below.
Corvettes continue to be honored as America’s Sports Car celebrates its 60th anniversary with the 2013 model, with an exciting seventh generation just around the corner, too.
Petersen Automotive Museum is joining right in, with big plans to recognize the Corvette next year, too.
First of all, 20 historic Corvettes and Corvette concept cars will be on display at the Petersen museum from Feb. 27 through March 31, 2013. But that’s not all.
The 2012 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals (MCACN) show is in now the books and it was another phenomenal event. The 2-day indoor show in Chicago attracted hundreds of the country’s finest Corvettes, muscle cars, and customs. We already teased you with a few show photos on Facebook and Twitter, and now a more extensive show gallery awaits you after the break.
The 2012 edition of the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals (MCACN) will take place this weekend just outside Chicago. The 2-day celebration of horsepower and chrome sets up shop inside the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont Saturday and Sunday November 17th – 18th. Show hours are 9am-9pm on Saturday and 9am-5pm on Sunday. A $20 bill will get you in the door.
Mecum Auctions takes their quest to sell every car ever produced west this weekend for their inaugural Anaheim, California event. Around 70 Corvettes are up for adoption this Thursday through Saturday as part of the 800 car docket. You can watch 18 hours of live coverage of the event on Velocity.
Today is the Great American Teach-In where regular folks visit their local elementary, middle or high schools and talk about what they do for a living. We’ve done this before but our group of 4th graders that we spoke with today at Chiaramonte Elementary in Tampa were very enthusiastic about my discussion on blogging, new media and most importantly, doing what you love to do.
Our friends at Mid America Motorworks have picked up another prestigious award.
Mid America, which is the world’s largest supplier and manufacturer of aftermarket parts for Corvettes, has just been named the winner of the 2012 eBay Motors People’s Picks Award for Best Source for Restoration Parts.
One of the draws of SEMA is that you know you are going to see some cool custom cars and in our opinion, one of the best custom vettes on display at this year’s show was Rod Saboury’s 1963 Split Window Corvette he calls “Black Widow”. If Rod’s name rings a bell, it’s because Saboury was also the man behind the World’s fastest street Legal 1963 Corvette drag car which we featured just last month.
Not many people have seen a 1963 Corvette Grand Sport in action, but the Simeone Automotive Museum in Philadelphia is offering enthusiasts just such a rare opportunity later this month.
During a weekend full of exciting activities on November 16 and 17, the Simeone Museum will take its 1963 #002 Grand Sport onto its back lot and demonstrate it for the public.
The demonstration will be the culmination of a special Corvette Racing Legends event set that weekend at the museum.
We came, we saw and we survived another great week at the annual SEMA show. We’re leaving Las Vegas Friday morning to fly across the country and so we thought this would be a great time to drop our photo gallery of Corvettes on display at the show.
