Corvettes on eBay: 127-Mile 1990 Corvette ZR-1

Corvettes on eBay: 127-Mile 1990 Corvette ZR-1

When Chevrolet introduced the 1990 Corvette ZR-1 to the world at the Geneva Motor Show, a new chapter of Corvette performance was written. Nicknamed “King of the Hill”, the new supercar Corvette featured an aluminum dual overhead cam engine capable of 375 horsepower and could rip a 0-60 mph time in the 4s – pretty fast in those days. The auto media loved the new Corvette and it was featured on just about every car magazine cover in its day.

Buyer reaction to the C4 Corvette ZR-1 was also red-hot despite the nearly $30,000 upcharge over the base Corvette for the ZR-1 package. Like the 1978 Indy 500 Corvette Pace Car, intense speculation about the future collectibilty of the ZR-1 also drove many buyers to pluck down the $60,000 for the Corvette only to store it away for a future sale.

I spent a few minutes last night listening to a video of a 2015 Corvette Z06 roar down the street. My son Chris was even more fortunate – he saw a red Z06 “live” going through the drive-through at the local Bojangle’s a few days ago.

There may not be a more exciting sound these days to the ears of a Corvette enthusiast.

Sadly, though, the owner of a new Z06, known on Corvette Forum as “Lawdogg 149,” recently heard a much sadder sound after he says he had properly broken in his supercar, getting ready for an event at Road Atlanta Jan. 10-11.

After a seven week process of preparing to fill the massive sinkhole under the National Corvette Museum’s Skydome, the ceremonial “first rock” was cast into the pit by the NCM’s Executive Director Wendell Strode. Inscribed on the rock was the words “Awesome God, Everyone Safe”, a testament to the fact that despite all the destruction caused by the sinkhole, there were no injuries to visitors or the employees who work there.
