We’ve already shown you the wild Split Ray radical custom 1966 Corvette which was revealed at Detroit Autorama last weekend. That crazy cool C2 was joined in the Great 8 by this stunning red 1954 custom C1. Eloquently called Transitions, the first generation Corvette was built as a tribute to the 1954 Motorama show car with full dose of modern technology.
2016 was an amazing year for Corvette Racing and the No.4 Corvette C7.R driven by Oliver Gavin and teammate Tommy Milner. The duo won the 2016 GTLM Drivers Championship while helping to also capture the Team and Manufacturers awards as well.
Each year at Detroit’s Autorama, cars being shown for the very first time compete for hot rodding’s top award, The Ridler Award. Before being named the Ridler winner, finalists are first selected into The Great 8 prior to final voting. This year two Corvettes were included in The Great 8 including this amazing midyear coupe called the 1966 Split Ray.
We’ve posted our share of Corvette vanity plates over years and I’ve always said that they usually fall into two categories. A good vanity plate either describes the car or it describes the owner. But there is a third category we’ve recently discovered, although rarely seen on Corvettes, and that’s the a pop culture reference.
We were just talking about Genovation GXE a few weeks back when we learned that CEO Andrew Saul had purchased a 2017 Corvette Grand Sport that would be the next Corvette to receive Genovation’s electric conversion.
But that doesn’t mean they’re resting on their laurels why the C7 conversion is happening.
It’s Monday, my favorite day of the week!
Okay, so I hate Monday’s like most of you but it is the one day of the week where we salute one of our favorite Corvette body styles with a special photo gallery we like to call Midyear Monday! Today’s Corvette image gallery features 46 Corvettes built between 1963-1967.
If you want to see your Corvette here, just email a photo or two to [email protected] and we’ll add it to our archive.
