A big thanks to one of our readers who sent us new photos of the 2019 Corvette ZR1s that are testing along Alligator Alley, the infamous stretch of highway transversing south Florida from Miami to Naples.
With the holidays just around the corner, now is the time to start crossing off those gift ideas for the Corvette enthusiast in your life. It’s also a great time to save on any Corvette parts and accessories you need to complete that project you are working on. We have some of the best Corvette retailers as sponsors so here is a roundup of some of their Black Friday / Cyber Monday Corvette deals.
Corvette Plant Manager Kai Spande recently visited with Chuck Clenney from Lexington Community Radio’s Bluegrass Bios and recorded this interview in the garage at the National Corvette Museum. You can listen to the full 47-minute interview which covers a range of topics from personal experiences to the latest 2019 Corvette ZR1 news.
Back in 1959, legendary Corvette designers Bill Mitchell, Pete Brock, and Larry Shinoda combined their talents to design their famous Stingray racer concept car.
It’s easy to fall in love with the beauty of that car, even 58 years later.
Unfortunately, there’s no way a normal person could ever afford to own this car.
Take a look at this video spotlighting the latest donation to the < AHREF="http://www.corvetteblogger.com/tag/corvette-museum/">National Corvette Museum – a 1967 Marlboro Maroon convertible with a stinger hood and the 427/4-speed combination courtesy of Dr. Torok and his wife.
But don’t think that they’re going to just ride off into the sunset in an SUV and never climb into another Corvette, though.
In fact, it was their purchase of a 2016 Z06 that prompted the idea of making the donation of the ’67 in the first place.
“Yes, we’ve had a lot of fun with it (the ’67),” Dr. Torok explains, “and then this last year, we went the route of getting the 2016 Z06 so this one lost out a little bit in that competition and we haven’t used it as much the last summer.
On Friday and Saturday the National Corvette Museum held their indoor yard sale of spare Corvette parts and memorabilia items from the Assembly Plant, the museum, and Corvette Racing. While many of us who may have been interested in checking out the sale couldn’t attend, the good news is that the NCM has now moved many of the memorabilia items online.
