Dana Mecum’s favorite car has to be the Chevrolet Corvette, especially if solely based on the number of outstanding high dollar cars that were hammered down during the last four days of his third Dallas auction.
It was clearly evident that Corvettes carried the four-day auction and were the car of choice for collectors where a new record price was paid for a Corvette ($3.2M, a 1967 L88, fully documented former NHRA record holder and the only ’67 L88 to retain its original body panels).
Of the 172 Corvettes that crossed the block 106 were sold, a 61% sell through rate, for a combined hammer price of $9.106M. Though some buyers were able to grab some excellent bargains during the first two days of the sale, the last two days saw spirited bidding and prices well above average. Almost twenty Corvettes were hammered down above $100K. It seemed as though most restored second generation cars were selling between $100K to $150K and if the car had any rare options it was selling close to or above $200K.

The internet’s abuzz tonight after a video has surfaced showing a Laguna Blue 2014 Corvette Stingray Z51 testing on the famous Nurburgring.

It’s time for Throwback Thursday where we feature vintage photos of Corvettes. In 1958, Chevrolet rolled out a major update on its now five year old sports car and like the 2014 Corvette Stingray, the press was eager to get their hands on it to see what it could do.
Motor Trend was lucky to score three 1958 Corvettes which are shown here at Buttonwillow Raceway with the MT crew getting ready to put the car through its paces.
It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a… Corvette?
That’s one way to describe a high-speed chase involving a stolen C4 Corvette that left the ground before slamming into the wall of a house in Miami, Fla., late Tuesday night.
Pat Monahan is no stranger to hard work, especially after restoring a 1962 red Corvette over the past 20 years.
That’s why it is no surprise that after his prized ’62 Corvette was stolen last month during the Monterey Peninsula’s Classic Car Week, Monahan decided to go to work the best way he knew and began plastering the Internet with information about the missing car.
