A total of ten Series 1 Speedsters were built, and each was custom tailored to the owners color choices. This 1991 Callaway Speedster is number 10 and was ordered as a 50th birthday gift to the late Chip Miller of Corvettes at Carlisle.

Happy Monday, Corvette lovers!

It’s that time where we pay tribute to the second generation of Corvettes with a special photo gallery we like to call Midyear Monday! Today’s Corvette image gallery features 45 Corvettes built between 1963-1967.

I’m featuring my own car as the cover. I toured three counties in the Tampa Bay area on Sunday prior to the game and have the sunburn to prove it. I took the photo in Tierra Verde after crossing the Sunshine Skyway.

If you want to see your Corvette here, just email a photo or two to Keith@CorvetteBlogger.com and we’ll add it to our archive.

Do you have a favorite Corvette photo from this week’s gallery? Let us know in the comments section below or hit us up on Twitter and Facebook.
