Although Corvette first made its introduction in January 1953 at the GM Motorama in New York City, the concept that took the country by storm – codenamed EX-122 – was actually built in 1952. Sixty years later, Chevrolet is planning to celebrate the occasion with events worldwide. Once of those celebrations is being planned when Chevrolet returns to the United Kingdom for the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Founded in 1996, the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance has grown to be one of the best high-end car shows in the Country. We were lucky to come across a gallery of photos posted on the Corvette Forum by member “AuctionDepot” who has graciously allowed us to share these Corvette photos with you.

It was a busy Friday morning for 31-year old Joseph Ciambriello according the police in Lindenhurst, New York.
The man was first accused of creeping around an elementary school in the early morning hours. When school officials confronted Ciambriello, he told them he was a member of the CIA and then he fled in his black C6 Corvette. The school got his license plate and called in the security threat to police, who caught up with Ciambriello a short time later.
Happy days are here again, at least for workers at the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

Larry the Cable Guy’s Only in America TV show recently stopped in Bowling Green, Kentucky where he filmed a segment at the Corvette assembly plant. Larry proves that he wouldn’t be a good addition to the local labor force as we watch him touch a newly painted door and struggle with putting together a set of seat belts.
