Some Corvette enthusiasts have to return to work today but all are keeping and an eye on the short work week with New Year’s Day coming on Thursday. Here’s something else to keep your eyes on – our final Midyear Monday gallery of the year! Midyear Monday is where we celebrate the 1963-1967 Corvette Sting Ray so take a look at our random photos from the C2 generation.
The National Corvette Museum’s Motorsports Park has always promised to deliver a lot of fun for enthusiasts.
The latest excitement is the new Track X program, a winter driving event in an autocross-type environment, complete with coned gates and dedicated start to finish timing – on the museum’s new racetrack.
This 1967 Corvette Sting Ray Convertible is a one owner barn find that was recently unearthed in Texas. Found by Thomas Weeks of Discovery TV’s Misfit Garage, the Blue Corvette has been tucked away since the early eighties in a barn across the street from the famous Southfork Ranch in Dallas.
Many Corvette enthusiasts have loved the car all their lives.
Cliff Young actually was a Mustang fan for most of his life, but then around the age of 60, he was bitten by the Corvette bug after a trip to a high performance driving school in 2006.
That convinced him it was time for a Corvette!
The 1965 Corvette Sting Ray was in its day the C7 of the era, you might say.
The third year of the second generation featured serious updates for drivers, not the least of which was Zora’s long-awaited disc brakes at all four wheels to provide the best possible stopping ability for the time.
Just as the C7 is the darling of the car magazines these days, so was the 1965 Corvette that was finally judged not only an American status symbol but a genuine high-performance sports car capable of thrilling even the most demanding drivers.
Police never know what they’ll find at a crime scene.
Just witness this white 1996 Corvette that’s been impaled by fence posts that crashed through the back bumper, shattered the back glass, with one winding up going into the back of the passenger seat.
That’s what Edgartown police, fire, and medical responders found around 11 a.m. last Sunday when they reached the site of a car crash at Katama airfield off Herring Creek Drive.

Since CorvetteBlogger’s founding in 2005, we’ve celebrated Christmas with the posting of a special Corvette version of Twas the Night Before Christmas. Over the last few years, our friend Rick Tavel from Corvetted.com has taken the poem one step further by customizing it so that it references the major Corvette-related events that occurred throughout the year.
Some of the events referenced in his new 2014 version include the debut of the C7.R Corvette racer, the NCM Sinkhole that swallowed eight Corvettes and Chevrolet’s banner sales year for the Stingray.
So now that it is the night before Christmas, gather up the children and take a seat next to the big block Vette in the garage for our annual Corvette Enthusiast’s Night Before Christmas:
