It’s hard to picture a much more patriotic car than the Chevrolet Corvette.

And when it comes to supporting the “red, white, and blue,” our nation’s law enforcement personnel definitely rank among some of our most patriotic citizens.

Since Jan. 9, 2015 is National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day across the U.S., the National Corvette Museum is showing its appreciation to these men and women by offering free admission to the museum to active and retired law enforcement and their immediate accompanying families Friday, Jan. 9 through Sunday, Jan. 11.

Corvettes on eBay: 127-Mile 1990 Corvette ZR-1

Corvettes on eBay: 127-Mile 1990 Corvette ZR-1

When Chevrolet introduced the 1990 Corvette ZR-1 to the world at the Geneva Motor Show, a new chapter of Corvette performance was written. Nicknamed “King of the Hill”, the new supercar Corvette featured an aluminum dual overhead cam engine capable of 375 horsepower and could rip a 0-60 mph time in the 4s – pretty fast in those days. The auto media loved the new Corvette and it was featured on just about every car magazine cover in its day.

Buyer reaction to the C4 Corvette ZR-1 was also red-hot despite the nearly $30,000 upcharge over the base Corvette for the ZR-1 package. Like the 1978 Indy 500 Corvette Pace Car, intense speculation about the future collectibilty of the ZR-1 also drove many buyers to pluck down the $60,000 for the Corvette only to store it away for a future sale.
