The headline is not a typo or a joke — a price for anything that includes seven digits is a serious matter and especially so for a car that hasn’t been started since 1967. Our friends at roadtrippers.com noticed this ad on eBay and understandably wondered if the ad and the car were legitimate. Certainly it’s not every day that you see a price that high on eBay, but it’s not even close to the highest eBay sale on record—that belongs to a Frank Mulders designed, 405-foot yacht that sold for $168,000,000 in 2006.

A few weeks ago we told you about an exceptional 1967 L88 Corvette Coupe scheduled to cross the block in Mecum’s inaugural Seattle auction
Anytime an L88 Corvette is scheduled to be auctioned it is worth the trip, if not to bid but just to drool. As we reported Mecum will be auctioning an impeccable 1967 L88 that might just shatter the current world’s record. And now if that weren’t enough Dana Mecum has decided to make this an L88 “double feature” adding a third generation L88 to be sold Saturday, June 14th.

A lot of us Corvette owners make a point to get home pronto if it just looks like it might sprinkle on our beloved cars.

The need for speed is especially strong for young teen drivers.

One such driver Friday night was 16-year-old Clay Armstrong, who drag-raced his first car – a C4 Corvette that reached speeds of 130mph in 12 seconds – with his mother’s blessings.
