The list of significant Corvettes being offered at the January auctions next month continues to grow. Next up is this very rare red on red 1971 LS6 convertible which will be crossing Russo and Steele’s auction block in January. It is believed that this car is the only red on red LS6 roadster ever built.
Since our inaugural year of blogging about Corvettes in 2005, we’ve run a “Corvette Style” version of the famous “Twas The Night Before Christmas” poem. Last year the poem was updated to include the new C7 Corvette by our friend and contributor Rick Tavel. Since the new 2014 Corvette Stingray was introduced this January, it was only fitting that the holiday classic receive another update.
We’d like to wish everyone who visits CorvetteBlogger a very Merry Christmas and Christmas wishes go out to the men and women serving our country in the armed forces both home and abroad. God Bless you all!
