Last week we shared the Corvette Hall of Fame induction video with Chevrolet dealer and Corvette enthusiast Rick Hendrick. In that video, Rick mentions his first Corvette, a 1963 Convertible several times. That was the car he was driving when he went on his first date with his wife, Linda. It’s also the car that that he sold to help buy his first Chevrolet dealership. We all know how well that deal worked out.
Our last Midyear Monday gallery was dedicated to all the C2 Corvettes we saw on display at this year’s Corvettes at Carlisle show. We hope you have had a chance to view the mega Carlisle gallery because there are always great Corvettes on display there.
For today’s Midyear Monday gallery, we’ll revert back to form by featuring 33 random Corvettes that were all born between 1963 to 1967 – the original Sting Rays!

Corvettes are often referred to as “toys” for their owners.
Well, if that’s the case, then this photo of a crash on King Avenue in Billings, Mont., on Saturday night is fitting. In the background, you’ll see a Toys”R”Us sign!
Velocity’s Car Crazy this week will feature the immense car collection of Ken Lingenfelter. You’ll recognize Ken Lingenfelter as the owner of aftermarket superpower Lingenfelter Performance Engineering.

Today we bring you yet another low-mileage 1978 Corvette.
Way back when the ‘Vette was celebrating its 25th anniversary and I was still a teenager, some folks got the idea that they would buy one – or more – of these “special” Corvettes and hang on to them to sell for a war pension sometime in the future.
Here’s a case in point.
The Holley Performance Products LS Fest at the National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park can go on as slated this weekend, according to a ruling by the Warren County Code Enforcement Board.
But after that event, the park must shut down events until a sound study is finished and the City-County Planning Commission of Warren County has reviewed and approved a new motorsports park development plan.
Car and Driver just held their annual Lightning Lap competition for 2015 and according to the results, the 2015 Corvette Z06 not only won its class, but dominated the entire competition by finishing fastest overall. Not only that, the Corvette Z06 was so fast that in the nine years of Car and Driver’s Lightning Laps, only one other car has finished faster.
One of our favorite things to do at the major car shows is to wander the venue checking out all of the vanity plates adorning the various Corvettes in attendance. Our latest installment of Corvette vanity plates comes to you straight from Corvettes at Carlisle. This year’s Carlisle was the 2nd largest ever and we came up with a grandiose collection of vanity plates for your viewing pleasure.
We’re not sure what jurisdiction the Ministry of Economy and Commerce in Doha, Qatar has over American cars.
We’re not even sure how many 2005 to 2007 Corvettes are on the roads of Qatar, a small country next to Saudi Arabia on the coast of the Persian Gulf.
Nevertheless, The Ministry of Economy and Commerce announced Monday that it is recalling those Corvettes “due to a defect in the work of front lighting.”
