This is how we fight the case of the Monday’s here at CorvetteBlogger.com. We call it Midyear Monday and to celebrate, we feature a mega Midyear Monday gallery dedicated to the 2nd generation Corvettes produced between 1963-67.
Here’s another look at the Callaway Corvette C7 GT3-R which made its world debut on Saturday at the ADAC GT Masters Seasons Finale in Hockenheim. The video was uploaded to youtube by Chevrolet in Europe and features Ernst Woehr of Callaway’s Europe operations talking about the new race car. The language spoken in the video is German but there are English subtitles for us to follow along.
If you’d like to hit the track running with a vintage Corvette race car, this 1955 model (chassis # VE555001196) up for sale with a Buy-It-Now price of $95,000 on eBay might be for you.
The seller promises that “you can unload it off the trailer and go racing with a fast, reliable and competitive car which is eligible to race anywhere.”
If you’ve got a project car waiting for its powerplant, you might want to consider Chevrolet Performance’s newest ZZ6 crate engine that will be officially unveiled at the SEMA show next month.
The new engine will produce 405 horsepower and 405 lb-ft of torque, more than enough to put some pep in that old car you’re restoring.
You know the drill at many of the Cars and Coffee events around the country. When leaving the parking lot, give them something to talk about. Unfortunately for this C5 Corvette Convertible driver who was leaving the Cars and Coffee meet up in Dallas, his departure will be remembered for how badly it ended.
