[GALLERY] Chevrolet Gives Student Photographers a Shot at the Corvette Z06 Convertible

Looking for a cool way to help introduce the new 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible, Chevrolet turned to three college student photographers from the New York area and gave them the opportunity to shoot the new drop-top supercar before its reveal. Now Chevrolet wants your help by voting for the student who best captured the Z06 Convertible and will reward the winner who ges the most votes with $5,000.

TITLE

The last time we saw the 1954 Pizza Man Corvette racer it was crossing Mecum’s red carpet in St. Charles, Illinois in October of 2012. Back then it was a no sale after a high bid of $120,000. Recently it showed up on eBay still for sale. The “World’s Fastest Six Cylinder Corvette” beat up on the competition from 1962 to 1971 with Earl Britt behind the wheel.

1967 McNamara Corvette Sells for $725K at Mecum

Enthusiasts were treated to three days of excitement last week when Mecum presented their second major collector car auction of 2014, April 10th through the 12th in Houston.

The heavily promoted prototype Ford GT40 was hammered down at $7M and TV viewers got to see it on live TV. It was the highest price ever hammered down for an American car being broadcast on “live” TV. And though that was impressive, it was actually more exciting to watch former Viet Nam veteran Don McNamara’s pristine, 2997-mile Corvette hammered down for $725K ($797.5 including commissions). Along with the McNamara Corvette, Mecum sold 61 of the 101 Corvettes consigned, a strong sell through for Corvettes.
