With just over a week to go until the reveals on January 13th and 14th, Corvette enthusiasts are beginning to dance around like a 4 year who urgently needs to use the restroom. The anticipation grows as each day of the calendar flips over. Forbes Magazine chimed in Monday with their take on the highly anticipated 2014 C7 Corvette. The good news is that you don’t have to wait another week to see what Forbes had to say after the break.
Mecum Auctions continues to release details on some of the outstanding Corvettes they’ve got lined up for their Kissimmee auction later this month. In addition to a Survivor 1963 Z06 and the ‘entombed’ 1954 Corvette, this mega rare 1971 ZR2 will be crossing the block on Saturday January 27th around 4pm EST.
If you’re like most folks, you’ve never heard of mechanic’s liens.
But mechanic’s liens were in the news last month in Indianapolis, Indiana as federal prosecutors released details of a racket there that used mechanic’s liens to steal cars from banks and others who had ownership interest in the vehicles.
My 13-year-old son loves Corvettes and four-wheel drive trucks. This Craigslist find is definitely right up his alley, but will someone who actually has a driver’s license feel the same love, enough to pay “a firm” $2,500 for this 1978 C3 that’s been raised off the ground and turned into a four-wheel driver.

Going to school every day is a cool ride these days for the automotive technology students at Trenton High School in Michigan.
They’re in the second year of restoring this yellow 1980 Corvette.
The students began work on the car during the 2011-12 school year after owner Jim Schneider, a 68-year-old Vietnam veteran, decided the Corvette would be better used as an instructional tool, rather than wasting away at his home.
One of the most mystical Corvettes ever built is the 1963 Grand Sport, with only five of the very special high-performance vehicles ever made by Zora Arkus-Duntov and his crew before GM brass cancelled the project.
Through the years, sure, there have been replicas made of the Grand Sport. But now, you can buy a brand new Grand Sport, licensed by GM, through Superformance.
As car enthusiasts let’s take a few moments to reflect on the state of the automobile and what has become an avocation for most of us as we close out 2012 and enter 2013. Simply, we find ourselves surrounded by the fastest, best handling and most technically advanced performance cars ever produced. No doubt about it. For those of you whining over the “muscle car” era of the sixties and early seventies get over it, you’re showing your age! If you don’t know it, this is the real “muscle car” era and we should all realize it and be thankful for it.
