Hurricane Irma Update – Reunited (And It Feels So Good!)

Hurricane Irma Update - Reunited (And It Feels So Good!)


As a follow-up to my first Hurricane Irma Update which was posted before the storm arrived, I wanted to share the good news about our experience now that it’s over.

Hurricane Irma Update

Hurricane Irma Update


First, I’d like to thank all the family and friends who have reached out to me and my family during this time. Your words of encouragement and prayers are very much appreciated.

Many readers know that were are based out of Tampa and while the storm track for Irma was looking good for us earlier in the week, it all went to hell in the last 48 hours. My house is located inside Flood Zone A that was ordered evacuated. With the track expected to pass directly over the area, we grabbed a few of our supplies, our pets and headed out the door.

Leaving everything behind was hard and the stress of deciding what to take and what to leave was crazy. Basically, it was the pets or stuff so I chose the pets.

Before leaving, I instituted my hurricane plan and took my 1966 Corvette and parked it in a concrete parking structure. Walking away after she was all covered, I gave her one long look…that car has been in the family for 51 years and leaving her behind was just about the hardest thing I have done in a while. I’m praying to God that I will see her soon. Whether or not I will have a functional garage to park it in will be revealed later this week.

Many Florida communities are expected to be without power for sometime after the storm passes, so I can’t really predict how soon we’ll be back to full strength. I’ll keep trying to post when possible, and again I appreciate your support and patience during this time. For my fellow Floridians, our message is to remain strong and please be safe.

Corvettes on Craigslist: 1972 Corvette Widebody


Back in the 1970s, the Greenwood-style widebody kit was popular with customizers who wanted an unusual C3 Corvette.

This 1972 Corvette factory convertible appears to have been treated to such a transformation, maybe from an Eckler’s kit.

National Corvette Museum Offers Help to Hurricane Victims


Florida is bracing for the impact of Hurricane Irma in a few days, and the good folks at the National Corvette Museum are doing their part to help out their friends to the south.

August 2017 Corvette Sales

September 2017 Corvette Sales


General Motors issued the official report on Friday for August Corvette Sales. This is the first sales report since the Bowling Green Assembly Plant closed at the end of July. Some new deliveries from the factory still took place during the month but moving forward it’s safe to say that any new sales will come from existing dealer stocks.

So let’s get to it.

In August 2017, Chevrolet sold 1,748 Corvettes which was a 42.9% decline from the 3,063 Corvettes sold in 2016. In August 2016, the Grand Sport had started shipping. For the calendar year to date (January-August), a total of 17,385 Corvettes have been sold. This is a 12.6% decline from the 19,890 Corvettes sold in 2016 during the same time frame.
