If you have deep pockets, get ready to turn them inside out for this 1969 Corvette L88 that may be one of the best in existence.
The special Corvette will be one of the headliners at The Texas Classic Auction on Saturday, April 22.
Worldwide Auctioneers estimates the Corvette – one of just 116 L88s built for 1969 – will bring $650,000 to $750,000.
It’s time again for the Win Dale Jr.’s Ride raffle, which kicked off sales for the seventh year at the beginning of this month.
Response has been so good in the past that the Dale Earnhardt Jr. Foundation has increased the number of ticket available this year by 2,000 to 10,888 tickets.
So now that the 2018 Corvette ZR1 has been spied at the Nurburgring, video of the cars at the track are starting to show up on YouTube. One of the major unknowns is the ZR1’s powerplant. Will it be a supersized version of the supercharged LT4 or will we see a dual overhead cam LT5 as has been rumored to be in the works? Perhaps this video will finally start answering that question.
In the videos, the two known Coupe variants of the ZR1 are shown, the big wing ZR1 and a ZR1 prototype with the smaller wing.
The National Corvette Museum kicks off its 2017 car show season with their annual Bash event. Just like the start of baseball season, The Bash is a sign that summer and the Corvette driving season are near. It’s the first big event of the year at the museum and it’s also where GM unveils all the latest offerings on the next model year Corvette. This year we’ll get a look at the 2018 Corvettes hopefully including the just announced Carbon 65 package. We’re still holding out some hope that the much-speculated ZR1 will make an appearance, but that’s a long, very long shot (read: probably not gonna happen).
New pictures of the 2018 Corvette ZR1 have showed up in our inbox today and these latest photos will make you very happy! That’s because the camo-wrapped 2018 Corvette ZR1 was spotted testing on the Nurburgring in Germany!
These photos were most likely bought and paid for, so head over to our friends at Autoblog to see all 20+ images in high-res glory! (We’ll be here when you get back!)
I know we say this seemingly with every new photo set, but these new ZR1 photos give us the best look yet at what is looking to be a Corvette dedicated for track duty.
One of the happiest places on earth is opening its doors for charity next weekend. The Lingenfelter Collection’s annual Spring Open House will take place on Saturday, April 29th from 10am – 5pm. Prior to the event, from 9am – 10am, attendees can partake in a detailing seminar conducted by Adam’s Polishes.
Monday’s are particularly hard when they follow a three-day weekend, but when you got a photo gallery of C2 Corvettes to look forward to, it makes the recovery all that much easier.
Thanks again to those that have submitted a photos of their Corvettes. If you want to see your Corvette featured on a future Midyear Monday gallery, just email a photo or two to Keith@CorvetteBlogger.com and we’ll add it to our archive.
