Happy Monday, Corvette lovers!
We got a special car that we are going to feature for today’s Midyear Monday gallery.
A couple of weeks back we were invited to visit the Dream Giveaway garage – home of the Corvette Dream Giveaway – to see and drive one of the cars in this year’s grand prize package – a 1965 Corvette Sting Ray Convertible with a first-year 396/425 hp big block engine and sidepipes!
First things first. The Corvette Dream Giveaway is a charity fundraiser offering two fantastic Corvettes and $50,000 cash to offset the taxes. In this year’s Dream Garage is a 2016 Corvette Z06 Lingenfelter Signature Edition Serial No.1 and this Black/Red 1965 Corvette Sting Ray Convertible.
Your tax-deductible donation helps a variety of charities including the New Beginning Children’s Home (NBCH) which provides a family-style long-term residential care with a mission to provide foster children a safe and faith-centered family atmosphere where they can heal, grow and be loved. Grants are also offered to respected charities including Disabled American Veterans, National Guard Educational Foundation, Smile Network International, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, Bright Pink and Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries.

I joined Dream Giveaway Garage’s Mark Breiner for a road test in the car, and then we stopped a park for a quick interview:
This was actually my first time driving a big block midyear and that was a lot of fun. The car is perfectly restored and features great first-year options like the 396/425 V8, side exhaust as well as the J50 Power Brakes and the F40 Suspension. Convenience options include power windows, tilt/tele steering column and power steering.
The car also has a previous NCRS Top Flight Award.
