For a Corvette seller and a Corvette buyer, the Lucky Collector Car Auction held this past August 30 & 31 just outside of Tacoma, Washington was appropriately named. The lucky seller went home with a large check while the lucky buyer is the new owner of a numbers matching 1963 Corvette fuelie roadster.

A red 1999 Corvette coupe suffered an apparent mechanical problem on Saturday morning and wound up in the woods in the Florida Panhandle town of Crestview.
“I love that car,” said a Crestview man who requested his name not be revealed. “It’s something I wish I didn’t have to be seeing.”
If you’re looking for originality, uniqueness, and rarity, then this 1967 Corvette COPO convertible might be for you.
In case you’re not familiar with COPO, it stands for Central Office Production Order. Basically, it allowed Chevrolet top dogs and a few dealers to order new vehicles with special features not usually found on the ordinary production vehicles.
This particular Corvette is one of only five known to be painted with Silver Pearl exterior paint and a red interior, a combo not available to ordinary folks.
Yesterday was National Teddy Bear Day and Chevrolet used the occasion cruise through Manhattan with a special delivery in a 2015 Corvette Stingray Convertible for kids that are fighting cancer. GM donated 48 small teddy bears and one big one to the Sunshine on Wheels program at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in Manhattan.
The ribbon-cutting was held just a few days ago, but the National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park is already looking to be as big a smash hit as the C7 Stingray.
Mitch Wright, general manager of the Motorsports Park, says that the facility has already booked 189 days so far – well on its way to meeting its goal of having 200 days booked during its initial year.

Car and Driver recently came out with an update on their long-term test car – a 7-Speed Manual Z51 Coupe – and unfortunately they’ve encountered a few issues that hit at the reliability and everyday driveability of the new C7 Corvette.
The NEW Corvette America Catalog is Here!
The latest edition of Corvette America’s C3 Classic Catalog is now available. If you own a 1968-1982 Corvette, then this catalog is the one for you with 208 pages of Interiors, Parts, Wheels, Car Covers and Accessories specifically for your classic.
Well, one thing you can say for sure about this way-out-there, wide-body Corvette Stingray is that everyone will have an opinion about it – even your grandma!
It’s supposedly the widest (and maybe wildest) C7 convertible in the world, according to the fellow who posted a bunch of photos of his friend’s one-of-a-kind Stingray on Corvette Forum late last month.
Their injuries may be the least of their worries after two men in Hamtramck, Mich., wrecked a C4 Corvette they are accused of stealing last week.
Hamtramck Police Chief Max Garbarino says the driver was driving irresponsibly and spinning the tires in the Corvette, prompting lawmen to give chase.
An old adage says that imitation is the best form of flattery. Obviously we were not the only ones that recognized the high bar in terms of value set by Chevrolet’s performance leader, the Corvette Z06. The folks over in Auburn Hills (that’s Chrysler headquarters) also have come to realize that the 600 SRT Vipers sitting unsold weren’t flying out the dealers’ doors; in fact they aren’t even limping out the doors, and compared to the new Corvette Z06 things were obviously going to get worse for SRT’s sports car.
Last month only 38 SRT 2014 Vipers were sold. That rate of sale equates to a full year and a half supply of unsold 2014 cars and the 2015s are on their way. It doesn’t take a marketing genius to realize that when the new Corvette Z06 hits the dealerships in late December or early January things for the Viper wouldn’t get any better especially considering the price of a 2014 SRT Viper is $101, 300, over $20K more than the more potent 2015 Z06.
