Should you hear that the “Green Slime” is coming to Chicago, don’t be alarmed—this “Green Slime” is not the villain of the eponymous 1968 sci-fi horror flick. No, the “Green Slime” headed to Chicago refers to the 1997 Corvette that was the first of the breed to be modified by racing performance gurus Mallett Motorsports into a fire-breathing monster in its own right that will be one of the star attractions at Mecum’s Chicago auction on Saturday, October 11, 2014.

Back on Labor Day weekend earlier this year the National Corvette Museum officially opened their new Motorsports Park. The freshly minted facility recently held its first official High Performance Driving Event (HDPE) on September 27th and 28th. In the video after the break we get a quick look at all of various festivities that took place a couple weeks ago.
It’s the first of the month and that means we have the latest Corvette sales report from General Motors. According to report, General Motors sold a total of 2,467 Corvettes in September 2014. That compares to just 831 Corvettes sold in September 2013 for an increase of 196.9%.
Year to date sales (January-September) totals 25,950 Corvettes, which beats the 2013 YTD Sales of 7,830 Corvettes by 231.4%.
Chevrolet officially revealed the performance statistics for the 2015 Corvette Z06 this afternoon and the numbers should put a lot of smiles out there in the Corvette Nation. The new C7 super car is the fastest production Corvette ever built and one of the few sports cars on the market that’s a member of the 10-second quarter mile club right out of the box.
DETROIT (Sept. 30, 2014) – Corvette Racing closes the inaugural year of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship this weekend with the 17th running of Petit Le Mans – the annual 10-hour endurance race at Road Atlanta. Saturday’s event has high stakes for the factory Corvette program in the GT Le Mans (GTLM) classes with the Drivers Championship on the line.
This Corvette Z06 is described as being “on steroids” with its procharged LSX engine providing nearly 1,000 hp. The beefy Corvette is for sale on the Corvette Forum.

Could this video show what apparently could turn out to be the first Saleen Corvette ever?
An enthusiast in Los Angeles spotted this unusual-looking car and followed it to see if he could find out more about it.
Lo and behold, Steve Saleen – yes, apparently that one – turned out to be behind the wheel and told the inquisitor that the car was a Corvette-based prototype.
