They say that it’s the first five days after a weekend that are the hardest to make it through. As Monday’s can be particularly rough, we are here to help you get through the day by distrating you with some serious Corvette eye candy. Check out this week’s installment of our Midyear Monday gallery that is dedicated to the 2nd generation Corvettes produced between 1963-67.
On Saturday evening, the VIN 001 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition became the latest “first retail” Corvette to be sold at auction with the proceeds going to charity.
The actual VIN 001 limited edition Corvette Z06 C7.R took to the block at Barrett-Jackson’s Las Vegas auction and after an introduction by Corvette’s Marketing Manager Todd Christensen, the Corvette was sold to a phone bidder for $500,000.
It’s hard to imagine a C7 Z06 sounding any better than the factory exhaust system growls.
But the folks at MagnaFlow have apparently done just that.

Here’s a follow-up on last week’s story about the New Braunfels, Texas Police Department’s kids contest to help name their new Corvette Z06 police car. The department has announced a winning name submitted by Chandler Radtke. From this day forth, the car will be known as Coptimus Prime.
It’s time for Throwback Thursday where we feature vintage photos of Corvettes. Here’s a picture of a 1963 Corvette Sting Ray Sport Coupe driving at night in the city.
Did I miss the memo this week which dictates that all Corvettes should have red wheels?
Earlier, we shared an Arctic White Corvette Z06 with red custom wheels from Forgiato. And now we’re sharing some new photos of this Black Corvette Z06 outfitted with red concave wheels.
