This week we have another special edition of our ever popular Midyear Monday gallery. We walked the SEMA show last week and found these C2 Corvettes among the Corvettes on display.

The C2s weren’t many, so we are also featuring several shots of each as we fully explore these customized SEMA show cars.

Among the offerings are a Superformance/Lingenfelter Grand Sport Replica, Heartland Custom’s 1963 SpecVette, a special 1967 Armed Forces Tribute Car, a couple of wicked 1963 Corvette Split Window Restomods.

I’ve made no bones about my love of that blue Grand Sport, but they are all great looking Corvettes built in the SEMA tradion. Got a favorite? Let us know in the comments section below or hit us up on Twitter and Facebook.
