It’s Monday so let’s ease the pain with a random gallery of Midyear Corvettes from 1963-67.
It’s the beginning of a new year which means its time for the annual Saint Bernard Catholic Church’s classic Corvette raffle. This year the grand prize is a red 1957 Corvette roadster with a 283/283 fuel injected V8 engine.
This individual Corvette is making its second appearance in the annual Corvette giveaway after it was presented to Jeff Morrison in 2010. Jeff sold the red roadster back to the Parish and now you can have the opportunity to drive it home later this summer.
The owners of the Corvette resting at the bottom of the pile in the shocking sinkhole inside the National Corvette Museum say they’re not sorry they donated their 2001 Mallett Hammer Conversion Z06 just six weeks ago.
Kevin and Linda Helmintoller made the trip to Bowling Green on Saturday to see firsthand the sinkhole that ate their car, which appears to be the lowest in the stack of eight Corvettes that suddenly tumbled into the earth on Wednesday.
Three (wet) hill climbs.
No driver aids allowed.
OK, this is pretty awesome. Corvette Stingray vs C6 Z06. Stingray is faster on launch but then that Z06′s torque curve kicks in.
The C6 Z06 has bolt-ons and the C7 has heads/cam and runs 10′s. Who do you think will win this?
