1965 Corvette VIN 001 Heading to Mecum's Kissimmee Auction

The 1965 Corvette Sting Ray was in its day the C7 of the era, you might say.

The third year of the second generation featured serious updates for drivers, not the least of which was Zora’s long-awaited disc brakes at all four wheels to provide the best possible stopping ability for the time.

Just as the C7 is the darling of the car magazines these days, so was the 1965 Corvette that was finally judged not only an American status symbol but a genuine high-performance sports car capable of thrilling even the most demanding drivers.

Police never know what they’ll find at a crime scene.

Just witness this white 1996 Corvette that’s been impaled by fence posts that crashed through the back bumper, shattered the back glass, with one winding up going into the back of the passenger seat.

That’s what Edgartown police, fire, and medical responders found around 11 a.m. last Sunday when they reached the site of a car crash at Katama airfield off Herring Creek Drive.

The Annual Corvette Enthusiast's Night Before Christmas 2014

Since CorvetteBlogger’s founding in 2005, we’ve celebrated Christmas with the posting of a special Corvette version of Twas the Night Before Christmas. Over the last few years, our friend Rick Tavel from Corvetted.com has taken the poem one step further by customizing it so that it references the major Corvette-related events that occurred throughout the year.

Some of the events referenced in his new 2014 version include the debut of the C7.R Corvette racer, the NCM Sinkhole that swallowed eight Corvettes and Chevrolet’s banner sales year for the Stingray.

So now that it is the night before Christmas, gather up the children and take a seat next to the big block Vette in the garage for our annual Corvette Enthusiast’s Night Before Christmas:

Our friend and co-host of the Corvette Nation TV Show Michael Brown just did an R8C Museum Delivery for his new 2015 Corvette Z06. What did he do next? How about some break-in laps at the NCM Motorsport’s Park:

Competitors in the Tudor United Sportscar Championship, such as Corvette Racing, put in long, hard hours at the racetrack and traveling around the country from spring until fall. Crews and drivers must endure hot weather, rainy weather, days away from their families, and unbelievable stress trying to make a sometimes cantankerous racecar do what they want it to do. Then, on top of all that, the sanctioning body can suddenly change the balance of performance parameters on your car to make everything that much more difficult.

Corvette Museum's Motorsports Park Recognized as Outstanding Facility of the Year

Well that didn’t take long.

The National Corvette Museum’s Motorsports Park has only officially been open for about four months in 2014, but that was long enough for the racing industry to take notice of the new race track in Bowling Green, KY.

At the Performance Racing Industry’s trade show in Indianapolis, the NCM Motorsports Park was recognized with the “Outstanding Facility of the Year” award which was presented by the the National Speedway Directory and Track Guide.
