If you’re in the market for a mid-year big block convertible barn find, you may want to head over to eBay Motors and take a look at what they have on the auction block—there’s a 427/390 hp ’66 Sting Ray that may be beckoning to you.
A Duntov Turbo Corvette, one of the lesser-known Corvette models, is up for sale on eBay and is being offered at no reserve.
The Duntov Turbo Corvette was a collaboration between American Custom Industries (ACI) and Zora Arkus-Duntov following Zora’s retirement from General Motors in 1975. The Duntov Turbo Corvette should not be confused with the 1979 Turbo Corvette and the 1980 Turbo Corvette, both of which were General Motors prototypes. General Motors did not participate in either the design or the manufacture of the Duntov Turbo as both were the responsibility of ACI.
Although a move has been rumored for the last couple of weeks, we’ve confirmed today that the Bloomington Gold Corvette Show will be leaving Champaign, Ill. where the show has been hosted for the last two years on the grounds of the University of Illinois.
A representative from Bloomington Gold tells us a new location will be announced soon.
Go vote right now for Corvette Racing in the WSJ’s Team to Win poll that is underway through Sunday. Even if you have already voted, you can cast a new vote every 24 hours. Other teams are saying that they can beat the fans of Corvette Racing. We’re here to let them know how sadly they are mistaken.
We don’t control IMSA’s rules, we have no say in their ridiculous Balance of Performance adjustments, but we the fans can make our voices heard by making sure Corvette Racing wins this vote.

Now that the Corvette Museum’s Motorsports Park is open, we are starting to get some feedback from some of the professional drivers who have already visited the new track. Johnny O’Connell, one of the most successful racecar drivers in the history of the sport was recently at the track and we’re interested to hear what he had to say.
The 2014 Corvette Stingray has already been acclaimed around the world for its beautiful and trend-setting design.
Now three General Motors car designers are going to take it a step further, helping the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD) Gala Fundraiser today.
The three GM Design employees – Casey Swanseger, 30; Tyler Mars, 28; and Haneif Katebi, 25 – will be using paint and brush on a 2014 Stingray, bringing to life Detroit’s “creative corridor” made up of industries that merge art, technology, and business.
If you’ve never driven or ridden in a 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, this 45-second video is the next best thing.
Just be sure you have some Dramamine handy in case the constant twists and turns have an effect on you.
If you think of high-performance Corvettes as gas guzzlers, think again.
This weekend, several Corvettes that have been converted to run on E85, a high octane blend of 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent unleaded gasoline, will be strutting their stuff in Nebraska.
We knew that once Corvettes were armed with the Performance Data Recorder that YouTube would never be the same. Already we are starting to see PDR videos online and they aren’t just videos that captured on-track driving. Corvette owners are using the PDR as dash cams and it’s only a matter of time before a PDR captures a “dashcam moment” like we see coming out of Russia every day.
One Corvette Forum member had his PDR activated as he was driving on a toll road in Fort Worth, TX when a semi tractor-trailer had a tire blowout in front of him.
