It’s been a couple of weeks since we’ve done a Midyear Monday gallery but I am in a giving mood today so here’s a mega gallery featuring 30 Corvettes produced from 1963 to 1967.
The National Corvette Museum continues to be the recipient of kind-hearted donations by enthusiasts.
The latest is a 1989 Medium Blue Metallic Corvette that was bought new by Jim Dodrill in Oklahoma City.
Many good times followed in the Corvette with Jim and his younger brother, Ike, a Lifetime Museum Member.

Two things in life are said to be certain: death and taxes.
Apparently the latter part of that saying applies even if you’re a Corvette Club that’s just raising money for charity.
That’s what officials with the 2015 Mississippi Corvette Classic car show in Jackson were shocked to find out recently for the first time.
Twenty years ago, Chevrolet closed out the C4 Corvette generation with a special run of 1,000 Corvette Grand Sports – 810 Coupes and 190 Convertibles. These Admiral Blue Corvettes are very distinctive with the white full length body stripe, Black Wheels and Red Hash Marks on the fender and they are a fairly rare sighting today on the streets unless you go to one of the bigger national shows.
We imagine that spotting a 1996 Corvette Grand Sport in the U.K. is even rarer which makes this story about a stolen Corvette in England newsworthy to Corvette enthusiasts everywhere.
Want to know why Corvette owners always back their cars into parking spaces? It’s so they don’t crunch the front bumper or splitter on the parking curb. On a Corvette Z06 with the visible Carbon Fiber splitter, that crunch can cost you $3,995! With newer Corvettes, owners can use the rear backup camera to assist with parking when backing in, but sometimes backing in isn’t always practical.
You spoke and the Corvette Team answered by adding one of the most asked-for options to the 2016 Corvette – the addition of two front facing parking assist cameras which will help guide owners into parking spots by showing the distance to curb, garage wall or other obstacles.
BOWMANVILLE, Ontario, Canada (July 12, 2015) – Corvette Racing and the Corvette Daytona Prototype program each had days to remember Sunday in the Mobil 1 SportsCar Grand Prix presented by Hawk Performance. Jan Magnussen and Antonio Garcia regained the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship’s GT Le Mans Driver points lead while Jordan Taylor and Ricky Taylor led a 1-2 overall finish for the Corvette DP at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.
Here’s a great video that Canadian Tire Motorsports Park put out on race day with interviews of Oliver Gavin and Jan Magnussen talking about why they love racing at the fast but challenging racetrack. And love it they should as Corvette Racing has enjoyed great success with 11 wins over the last 15 years.
The GoldTour has been one of the marquee events of Bloomington Gold for many years now. Each Saturday night of the Bloomington Weekend thousands of Corvettes gather for a Corvette parade through the countryside surrounding the show’s location. Due to logistics, though, it’s rarely been able to stage and leave from the actual show location – until this year.
BOWMANVILLE, Ontario, Canada (July 11, 2015) – Corvette Racing’s Jan Magnussen was fifth in GTLM qualifying for the Mobil 1 SportsCar Grand Prix with a lap of 1:15.325 (117.523 mph) in the No. 3 Chevrolet Corvette C7.R he shares with Antonio Garcia. The duo is seeking to repeat as GTLM winners while Corvette Racing is going for its 12th victory at the circuit since 2001. That makes CTMP the team’s most successful track.
We took some time during last weekend’s Bloomington Gold at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to assemble our latest installment of Corvette vanity plates. Bloomington this year provided a bumper crop of cool plates to include our gallery. From the GoldMine to the Certification field we had plenty of plates to enjoy.
