Over the weekend we learned that actor James Garner had passed away. Garner was a favorite of ours back in the day with great character roles like Bret Maverick and Jim Rockford. But did you also know that he was a serious race car driver who owned a Corvette racing team?
It’s time for another exciting round of Midyear Monday where we feature random pictures of our favorite Corvette body style (my favorite at least), the 1963-1967 Corvette Sting Ray.
We got a little bit for everyone in today’s Midyear Monday with Split Window 1963s to field cars to fully restored engine bays featuring Chevy’s venerable 327 cubic inch small block.
If you found a tattered classic car in a barn, would you leave it like it is or restore it to like-new condition?
Both options obviously have their pluses and minuses.
Today, we hear from someone who is happy he chose the first option.
Each year the Corvette Reunion, held in conjunction with the Back to the Bricks car show in downtown Flint, Michigan, continues to attract more and more Corvettes from all across the country and this year plans have been made to accommodate 800 Corvettes, up about 150 over last year’s numbers.
In 2013 Corvettes showed up from as far away as Hawaii and included every generation plus hundreds of restomods and custom Corvettes. Officially this is the fifth anniversary of the event and will take place on Friday night, August 15th and Saturday, August 16th.
Today marks a new partnership for two performance organizations that both happen to call Bowling Green, Kentucky home.
Holley Performance Products and the National Corvette Museum’s Motorsports Park today announced the sponsorship of the track’s control tower and event center.
The two-level Holley Control Tower and Event Center will mimic the look of the National Corvette Museum and construction is slated to begin sometime in 2015.

The Corvette Stingray has been a great story for Chevrolet, winning an unprecedented number of awards including being named the 2014 North American Car of the Year. But the Stingray is also beating its rivals where it counts – the dealership sales floors.
