[VIDEO] Start it Up! Rare Big Block Corvettes Started Up at Roger's Corvette Center


Let’s just say it was an invitation that you couldn’t refuse.

Our friend Jeff from the Facebook group Simply Corvettes put together an event called “The Run to the ZL1” and asked if we wanted to come over and check out the 1969 Corvette ZL1 at Roger’s Corvette Center in Orlando, FL. Most Corvette enthusiasts have never seen one a ZL1 in person, let alone hearing it started up. So we took the day off and headed over to check it out.

Top 50 Corvette Dealers of 2017 (through July 31)

The Top 50 Corvette Dealers of 2017 (through July 31st)


It’s time for another update on which Chevrolet dealers are selling the most Corvettes in the United States. Our previous Top 50 Corvette Dealers List was last updated through April 30th and this latest update will now take us through July 31st.

With the Corvette Assembly Plant now closed for three months for upgrades, it’s going to be these dealers that will most likely have the most Corvettes in inventory though these dry months. So if you’re looking for a 2017 or 2018 Corvette to drive this summer and your local dealer doesn’t have much in stock, this would be a good list to start from.

We have four sponsoring dealers that made this latest Top 50 Corvette Dealers list. Our friends at Kerbeck Corvette are leading all dealerships with sales of 674 Corvettes through July 31st. Mike Furman at Criswell Chevrolet is solidly in No. 3 with sales of 241 Corvettes so far. Two of our newest sponsoring dealers, Van Bortel Chevrolet in upstate NY, and Elkland Chevrolet in Pennsylvania came in tied at 47 Corvettes and they are listed as #29 and #30 respectively.

One final quick note about this list before we get to showing the 50 Corvette dealers. It does come from official GM sources and even though some dealers are tied with the same quantity, we are listing them in the order that was provided.

Here are the Top 50 Corvette Dealers from 2017 (through July 31):

1954 Corvette Barn Find Rescued after 43 Year Storage

1954 Corvette Barn Find Rescued after 43 Year Storage


One of the highlights of my high school days was having a homeroom teacher who had a rough 1954 Corvette sitting in the carport of his modest ranch-style home.

No matter how much I begged, he wouldn’t sell it back then to a snotty-nosed teenager, and I’ve often wondered what ever happened over the past 44 years to that unrestored C1 that was like the Holy Grail to this avid Corvette lover from a young age.
