We recently showed you a 1977 Corvette that has been customized to look like a 1967 Corvette Sting Ray. Now we unveil a wild looking C5 Corvette that’s been updated with a C7 rear end.
General Motors is facing a class action lawsuit over performance problems of its C7 Z06 models produced from 2015-2017, according to a Florida law firm representing the plaintiffs.
Hagens Berman and Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen filed the lawsuit on June 13 on behalf of a group of Z06 owners, seeking reimbursement and all damages permitted by law in an amount to be proven at trial.
Seriously? Someone found another sub-10,000 mile 1967 Corvette? Why can’t I ever find anything like this? The next stop on the low mile 1967 Corvette train is this Rally Red on black 427/400 coupe crossing the block this weekend at Mecum’s Portland auction. This rare Corvette has just 9,523 miles on the odometer.
CorvetteBlogger.com would like to wish congratulations to our friends Adam Ellison and his lovely bride, Katie Frassinelli Ellison. The couple tied the knot over the weekend in Bowling Green, KY. Later, while cruising Facebook, I came across the photos of the event which includes the world’s greatest wedding photo featuring a Corvette.
Corvette Racing participated in the annual trek to downtown Le Mans on Monday where the C7.Rs underwent the pre-race technical inspections known as Scrutineering. Once completed, the team had its 2017 official photo taken in the town square. The real action kicks off on Wednesday as the team will get out on the track for the first Free Practice sessions ahead of Thursday’s qualifying for the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Another weekend is now in our rear view window. Hope everyone is enjoying their summer and getting their cars out. Our weekly love of labor aka the Midyear Monday Photo Gallery is featuring 48 photos of the iconic 1963-1967 Corvettes this week.
Want to see your Corvette featured on a future Midyear Monday gallery? Email a photo or two to [email protected] and we’ll add it to our archive.
