Don’t look now, but it’s already the last weekend in June! To us Corvette folks that means one thing – it’s time for another installment of Bloomington Gold. The 42nd annual Bloomington Gold Corvette Show takes place this Friday, June 27th through Sunday the 29th. 2014 marks the second year on the University of Illinois campus in Champaign.
To say that eBay has been a boon to those who are perennial car-lookers, like most of us Corvette fans, is overstating the obvious. You just never know what you’re going to find.
For instance, a currently running auction on eBay is offering a 1969 Riverside Gold Corvette convertible in survivor condition showing only 51,089 miles “that is believed to be original” in the ad’s words, being sold by the guys at the Gas Monkey Garage featured on the TV show Fast N’ Loud.
It’s that time of year again!
This Friday marks the 14th Annual “Drive Your Corvette to Work Day”. Will you be driving your Corvette to work?
If you’re a Corvette enthusiast, you’ve no doubt heard about the mysterious McNamara Corvette.
Here, though, are much more details you may not have heard about the owner of that special 1967 427/390 Sting Ray, Robert McNamara, coming from the few people who knew him best.
The details make the story of the McNamara Corvette that much more intriguing.
It’s Monday and that means it’s Midyear Monday here at CorvetteBlogger.com! The day is one of our favorites because we get to share a mega gallery of 1963-1967 Corvette photos. If you love the 2nd generation Corvette as much as we do, make sure you share this page on Twitter and Facebook.
The granddaddy of all Corvette shows kicks later this week as Bloomington Gold returns to the University of Illinois campus in Champaign, IL. Our friends from Mid America Motorsworks let us know that three rare cars from Mike Yager’s MY Garage Museum will be on display with one of them being inducted into the Great Hall.
Here’s a great review of the 1967 Corvette Sting Ray (and a healthy dose of classic Corvette history) from XCAR:
The C2 Corvette was the first to have the Stingray name (or Sting Ray as it was then). We take a pristine 1967 model out for a spin to see why it was the car of choice for the coolest men on the planet.

Chalk up three generations of Ann-Shirley Goodell’s family as Corvette enthusiasts.
And enthusiastic about not just any Corvette – but particularly the Fawn Beige one that Ann-Shirley bought new for $3,747.85 more than 52 years ago at King Chevrolet in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Over the years, her two sons have driven the car to their senior proms, and now her two 10-year-old grandsons are wild about the Corvette, too.
