[VIDEO] Corvette Museum Heritage Series Features the Don Messner Collection


Don Messner wanted to plant a seed, his widow says.

Like so many Corvette enthusiasts, Don was committed to America’s Sports Car – and the National Corvette Museum.

That’s why he decided to leave his collection of 10 Corvettes, many collector and special editions, low mileage examples, to the Museum when he passed away in 2013.

Sometimes when you run across an old Corvette story, it really makes you wonder about your fellow man – like, what the heck were they thinking!

[PICS] Corvette Museum Delivers First 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition


It’s always great news when you hear that customers are finally getting their hands on a new or special special edition Corvette.

It was back in April 2015 that the Corvette Team first unveiled the 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition at the National Corvette Museum’s Bash Event. Now we’ve come full circle with the first R8C Museum Delivery of the special edition Z06.

The NCM’s latest newsletter featured Lifetime members Ron and Jessica Grove of Mohnton, PA and their brand new Corvette. The 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition they picked up was one of the first 10 of the commemorative C7.R Editions available and one of five to go to the NCM for R8C customer deliveries.

We’ve known Ron Grove personally now for a while as he is an active follower of the CorvetteBlogger twitter feed. He’s also a huge fan of Corvette Racing so we are sure that was one of the main reasons he jumped to buy the new special edition car.

We reached out to Ron to congratulate him on the car and he replied “Awesome Z06! A huge step change from my C6 Z06!” That we can imagine! Congratulations again Ron and Jessica and we hope you enjoy your new 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition!

Corvettes on Craigslist: Wrecked and Parked 1965 Corvette


Like most Corvette enthusiasts, I’ve often dreamed of working on a 1965 Sting Ray in my garage, turning a basket case into a shining show car.

While this yellow 1965 Corvette might be the chance for me and my sons to restore a car together, the asking price of $25,000 is enough to scare us away.
