Corvette Racing’s program manager wears many hats when it comes to managing one of the most successful racing programs ever for a manufacturer, but as our friends at BadBoyVettes.com recently reminded us, his role is much larger than you may think.
Now that Mecum has wrapped up their 27th Annual Spring Classic in Indianapolis, Corvette enthusiasts are looking forward to the latest addition to Mecum’s already extensive schedule of collector car auctions, this one in Seattle. And the reason for the anticipation is that one of the “bluest” of blue chip Corvettes will cross the block on Saturday June 14th, one of only twenty 1967 L88′s ever produced. Rarely do these special Corvettes ever change hands and when they do a world’s record price is usually at risk of being broken.
Hope everyone is enjoying their Memorial Day weekend. You know how much we enjoy kicking off the week with a Midyear Monday gallery and just because today falls on a holiday doesn’t mean we can’t share some C2 eye candy. So here’s your random photo gallery of 2nd generation Corvettes from 1963-1967. If you love the 2nd generation Corvette as much as we do, make sure you share this page on Twitter and Facebook.
No other Corvette garnered as much attention at last year’s SEMA Show than the Forgiato Widebody C7 Stingray. Not only did the crowds love it, but SEMA’s judges gave it the design award for best Chevrolet exterior.
It appears that others took notice of the C7 widebody and the crowds it generated. Today, we got this new picture from the automotive imagery experts at Gurnade who rendered this C7 Widebody for a potential project for the 2014 SEMA Show.
You really hate to see this.

Somebody’s baby no more.
Construction at the National Corvette Museum’s Motorsports Park is well underway and getting closer everyday to its grand opening at the end of August. We recently came across some new aerial photos of the racetrack on their facebook page which gives us the best views yet on how the track will look when completed.
It’s race week in Indianapolis with the running of the 98th Indy 500 on Sunday so it seems fitting to feature a little history about the first time a Corvette was used as the pace car at the famous race. It was 36 years ago this weekend that Corvette first made its appearance at the Brickyard with the 1978 Corvette Indy 500 Pace Car.
This is classy move by Chevrolet.
To honor those customers that were the first to buy the all-new Corvette Stingray, Chevrolet is sending out a nice thank you gift. The gift contains a black box with the C7 crossed flags logo. Open it up and there is a leather pouch which is made of the same color and material as the owners C7 interior. Inside the pouch is a thank you letter and a book about the Corvette Stingray.
