When perusing the thousands of hop up bits and custom cars at SEMA it’s always hard to pick a favorite. We’ve already shown you Heartland Custom’s 1971 “Stingray” coupe and now it’s time to marvel at the “Raytona” 1963 convertible. If you follow us on social media you already got a sneak peek of this awesome ride last week. Now it’s time for a closer look.
While I’ve never owned a 1977 Corvette, that model still holds a special place in my heart because I graduated from high school that year. My buddy Greg even owned a white one back in the day, and I talked to him about the car, long since sold, a few months ago at of all places, a funeral.
It’s the personal stories like those that make Corvettes so interesting, and that’s why this Regular Car Review of a silver 1977 Corvette Restomod struck a note with me.
We just closed the hood on the 2015 edition of the SEMA Show. We joined about 140,000 other attendees out in Las Vegas for 4 days automotive nirvana. SEMA is the playground for the automotive aftermarket. Hundreds of parts suppliers, shops, and OEM’s show off all of their latest hop up parts for your ride.

Drinking too much and then speeding in a Corvette don’t mix.
That’s what a 22-year-old allegedly did in Alton, Ill., on Monday night, according to local police, who say he now faces serious charges stemming from the incident.
Combining two of our favorite things – Corvettes and Doritos – sounds like a sure-fire winner.
At least Micheal Brown hopes so.
On our final day of SEMA last week, we bumped into our friends Mike and Blake Yager from Mid America Motorworks. Mike was scouting new products at the show and so we thought we’d talk with him about what he looks for at SEMA, as well as the latest happenings at Mid America Motorworks.
Chevrolet officially opened the SEMA show on Tuesday morning at 11:00 am with their official press conference on the show floor. Although slightly condensed from the official media preview the night before, for many this was the first time to see and learn more about the great new cars and trucks on display.
All you folks out there with a project car that has an empty engine bay just begging for more horsepower should be thrilled with the latest news from Chevrolet.
The Corvette Z06 LT4 6.2-liter supercharged powerplant is now available as a crate engine.
When you think of the SEMA show that just wrapped up in Las Vegas, do you think of midyear Corvettes?
While the manufacturers and aftermarket product guys usually show off their products on new C7 Corvette Stingrays and Z06s, of which we saw plenty of, C2 Corvettes are usually the domain of restorers or builders showing off their latest creations.
After spending the week at SEMA and walking the booths, display areas and parking lots, we’re pretty sure we’ve captured every single 1963-67 Corvette at the show. So here’s a special Midyear Monday photo gallery featuring the eight C2 Corvettes at SEMA:
