For some Corvette owners, parking their baby in the garage just doesn’t do it justice. But the living room is perfect!

And if you think that is an exaggeration, check out this vintage photo of the 1954 Entombed Corvette.

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.
