For instance, take these two cars featured in an AmeriCarna video on Velocity.com.

Chance Parking Lot Encounter Leads to Love for Two Corvette Owners

Sometimes love is not just in the stars – it’s in the cars!

For instance, I met Cindy, my wife of 25+ years, on a warm spring Saturday night while cruising the streets of Dalton, Ga., in my red 1986 Corvette.

It was really love at first sight, at least for me, as I quickly – and boldly for me – asked her to go to a Corvette show at Day’s Chevrolet in Acworth, Ga., the next afternoon.

[VIDEO] Stolen Corvette Found after 43 Years but Legal Roadblocks Prevent Reunion with Owner

‘Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.

A Georgia woman probably isn’t so sure about that old saying, especially after her heart may wind up being broken twice – but not by a man, but by a Corvette.

1954 Corvette Offered by Mecum's Las Vegas Auction at No Reserve

Mecum’s auction of 230 cars from the Rogers Classic Car Museum in Las Vegas is giving car collectors an opportunity that doesn’t come along too often—the opportunity to bid on a variety of American cars all being offered at no reserve. This is particularly interesting to Corvette enthusiasts as one of the no-reserve cars is a Sportsman Red 1954 Corvette. Auctions offering C1 Corvettes at no reserve come along about once in a blue moon.

On Thursday afternoon, the National Corvette Museum marked the one year anniversary of the SkyDome Sinkhole with a press conference that culminated in the official return of the 2009 Corvette “Blue Devil” ZR1 to the display floor.

The Museum considers the one-year anniversary to be a celebration of sorts for the all the hard work and determination from the staff of the museum, the construction workers that put in long hours during the recovery and repairs, as well as the Museum members who stepped up their support during this difficult year.

The staff at the Museum, led by Executive Director Wendell Strode, has often been described as taking a bad situation and turning it into a positive outcome. The phrase “turning lemons into lemonade” has been used to describe the last year which saw record visitor numbers and new memberships despite the fact there was a large sinkhole in the SkyDome. So it was no surprise that the during the commemoration, glasses of lemonade were passed around to those in attendance.
