If a new Corvette Z06 is on your holiday wish list, you may want to give want to give the jolly old elf (no, not your uncle Leo, Santa Claus) a helping hand. A Z06 is tough to wrap and might not easily fit into Santa’s sleigh, not to mention giving Dancer, Prancer et al. a tough flight. Rather than ask Santa, the National Corvette Museum has better idea for you.
Sure it’s Monday but it’s a short week with the Thanksgiving holiday. So now it’s our turn to give thanks to Chevrolet for the second generation of Corvettes produced from 1963-1967 with our Midyear Monday gallery. Here’s a random photo gallery of 28 Midyear Corvettes to kick off the week.
How much horsepower does your Corvette have? 300? 400? 500 or more? That’s cute. Check out this insane white C6 ZR1 which is being billed at the world’s most powerful ZR1. At 1,385hp with nitrous we’re not going to argue with that claim. The modded LS9 still throws down 1,075hp even without the spray.
The Marvel Comics Universe seems to have a thing for Corvettes. First there was the Black Widow’s Corvette Stingray from Captain America: The Winter Soldier. And then when Agents of SHIELD came to FOX, one of the stars of the show is Agent Coulson’s classic red Corvette named Lola.
Now another Agent of SHIELD will be driving a Corvette Stingray, but not on TV. Actress Ming-Na Wen who plays Agent Melinda May on the show was just surprised with a red Corvette Stingray from her husband on her birthday.
For the second time since 2011, Danny Popp and his 2003 Corvette Z06 are the overall winner of the 2014 Ultimate Street Car Invitational sponsored Nov. 8-9 for the first time at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway by OPTIMA Batteries.
This time, Popp won the title by less than a point over Brandon Ranvek and his 2006 Mitsubishi Evo.

Yesterday we posted a video of several Corvettes Z06s at Road Atlanta and while many will end up at the track now and then, most will be driven on the street. Here’s an Arctic White Corvette Z06 hitting the streets!
The Corvette Z06 is just at home with casual driving on the streets as it is on the track. Here’s a 2015 Corvette Z06 in Arctic White with the Z07 Performance Package cruising around on the streets.

If you can’t afford a real 2014 Corvette Stingray, here’s an unusual option. Just build your own – out of paper!
A guy who labels himself Visual Spicer has created a papercraft replica of his wife’s current dream car – the C7 Stingray – that they have hanging on the wall of their home.
PDFs and PDOs of the Stingray that you can use to build your own Stingray out of paper are available online for less than $10 – definitely a bargain compared to the real thing!
The honors continue to roll in for the seventh-generation Corvette Stingray.
Car and Driver has just named the Stingray to its 2015 10Best Cars list and gushes on and on about the work that chief engineer Tadge Juechter and his crew have done with the car, almost to the point of being embarrassing.
