1967 McNamara Corvette Sells for $725K at Mecum

Enthusiasts were treated to three days of excitement last week when Mecum presented their second major collector car auction of 2014, April 10th through the 12th in Houston.

The heavily promoted prototype Ford GT40 was hammered down at $7M and TV viewers got to see it on live TV. It was the highest price ever hammered down for an American car being broadcast on “live” TV. And though that was impressive, it was actually more exciting to watch former Viet Nam veteran Don McNamara’s pristine, 2997-mile Corvette hammered down for $725K ($797.5 including commissions). Along with the McNamara Corvette, Mecum sold 61 of the 101 Corvettes consigned, a strong sell through for Corvettes.

The history of the space program is all around visitors to the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.

Last Wednesday, another kind of history – though still related to the space program – was on display in the Rocket Garden at the space center.

That’s when Merritt Island’s Joe Crosby brought one of the most historic Corvettes ever made so a group of Corvette Enthusiasts from the National Corvette Museum could see it first hand.

The Corvette changed for 1968, evolving into the 3rd generation for the American sports car. The sleek new styling looks like full speed standing still, a trait shared by most Corvettes. This week’s Muscle Car Of The Week could be considered the top-gun of all ’68 Corvettes, as it carries a 500+ HP 427 under the hood, an optioned named the “L88″. L88 cars featured not only a distinctive hood, but a whole list of performance enhancements… the F41 performance suspension, J56 heavy duty brakes, a Muncie M22 4-speed transmission, and of course, the 12.5:1 compression 427 V8. The LeMans Blue roadster in the Brothers Collection is one of only 80 built in ’68, and it might look like a nice Sunday cruiser, but it was a thinly disguised race car sold to the public!

Introducing the 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible

Here is the 2015 Corvette Z06 Convertible. It’s one of the most capable drop-tops on the market and Chevy says it the most powerful convertible ever produced by the company.

Chevrolet planned to reveal it on Monday at the New York International Auto Show but apparently images of any new Corvette model are too hot to handle and as such, they were leaked earlier today.

The Z06 Convertible features everything you love about the C7 Z06 Coupe that was introduced in Detroit at NAIAS including the supercharged Gen 5 LT4 V8 with 625+ horsepower and 635+ lb-ft of torque at your disposal.

Deciphering the Confusing 2014 Corvette Collector Market

In a few days two prophetic auctions will take place that collectors of Corvettes will want to keep their eyes on whether they plan to bid at these auctions or not. The two biggest sellers of collector Corvettes in the country, Mecum and Barrett-Jackson will be holding their second important collector auctions of 2014. The reason these auctions are important is because after some mixed and difficult to interpret first quarter Corvette auction results, we should get a better read on the Corvette collector market and where it is headed for this year. After a spectacular 2013 which saw new records set on “blue chip” Corvette prices, and while the Corvette segment of the collector market was strong for most rare and well optioned cars, at this point it is difficult determine whether last year’s strong market tends will continue for 2014.
