It’s been an interesting week here at CorvetteBlogger to say the least!

Following the auction of CERV 1 on Saturday night at Barrett-Jackson, I went out on a limb and proclaimed the then anonymous buyer to be none other than General Motors following a couple conversations I had with “those in the know”. That limb can be a lonely place, but I had confidence in those sources I talked to and never wavered despite not having any more “evidence” to prove our claims.

And yesterday, the proverbial rubber hit the road as national publications like CNN Money picked up our story and now thanks to Hemmings, we have confirmation that CERV 1 will indeed be heading home to General Motors after all these years.

Corvettes on eBay: 1964 Corvette Survivor Was Driven As It Should

Corvettes on eBay: 1964 Corvette Survivor Was Driven As It Should


There’s something about a C2 Corvette that demands admiration, even – and maybe especially – one with 53 years worth of living etched into it.

But this Corvette might just win a sentimental award just for surviving.

Check out these dramatic photos following an early morning accident in midtown Atlanta!

Normally, when a vehicle ends up on top of a Corvette, its usually from the front due to the Corvette’s wedge shape design. But this Ford Truck owned by the City of Atlanta had no problems going right over the back of the car, smashing everything up to the drivers cockpit.

[VIDEO] Corvette Test Driver Jim Mero Has the Best Job in the World


Corvette’s Ride and Handling Engineer Jim Mero is a rock star in Corvette circles but outside our hobby, he is just one of the countless engineers that help make the Corvette the best it can be.

Michelin USA and Amazon’s The Grand Tour have put out a video this afternoon featuring Mero behind the wheel of a Corvette Grand Sport at the NCM Motorsports Park and he talks about how he has the best job in the world.

With a bootlegger for a grandfather, Mero’s need for speed must run in the family. Getting an early start with kart racing, Mero steadily moved up the ranks to Indy Car racing and eventually raced at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Now as the official test driver for Corvette, he says his “office” is the best in the world!

[GALLERY] Midyear Monday! (48 Corvette Photos)


Welcome back to another exciting edition of Midyear Monday! Our Midyears Corvette photo gallery took last week off to “celebrate” Blue Monday, but now we’re back this week with your second generation Corvette photos.

This week’s selection of images features 47 photos of Corvettes built between 1963-1967 plus one extra Corvette that came later. When you spot the C3 in the gallery, just know that it’s not an accident. I think that when you see it, you’ll understand!

My 1966 Corvette also made the gallery this week as I drove her over to Lakeland for the NCRS Winter Regional two weeks ago.

Thanks again to those that submitted photos of their Midyear Corvettes for the gallery. If you want to see your car here, just email a photo or two to [email protected] and we’ll add it to our archive.
